Has Tommy Haas a chance to finish year close to the top 10 ?
I have been wondering about this for a while.
Haas is currently ranked 24 in provisional ranking and no.18 in race. His form since May is outstanding.
Munich 250 : Semifinalist
Roland Garros : 3rd round as a qualifier
Halle : Winner
Hamburg 500 : Finalist
Washington 500 : Finalist
Toronto 1000 : So far 3rd round (possible quarterfinal if he beats Stepanek)
Only one bad performance in Stuttgart (l.in 2nd round to Cervenak) and 1st round loss to Kohlschrieber (eventual Quarterfinalist).
I think if he remains heathy and keeps good form he can do something like Tipsarevic in 2011, but it will be tough for him. As we know he is already 34, but that makes things even more interesting. So what do you think ?
