**Sunday Finals!! Roddick vs Haas!**

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. I can't believe I'm this excited over a tournament that has no website (well, there's a website but it's the worst of all the tourneys so far ), barely any live scoring available, and isn't being broadcast anywhere in the states (unless you're one of the 1.3% of Americans who have the Tennis Channel).

But I've been dreaming of a Roddick/Haas showdown forever and we're finally getting one! How can I not be excited? How can *anybody* not be excited?

Roddick and Haas haven't met up since 2002. Haas has won all three of their matches, two on clay, one on hardcourt. Haas is looking to top off his excellent comeback with a title and what better way to do it than with his very own pigeon?

Roddick is looking to reclaim the Houston title that he's won three times already (2 singles and 1 double), and also to finally settle a score with the German who so far has had the upper-hand on him.

But this isn't 2002. Andy's game has matured a lot since then. Has Tommy's? We will see! Good luck to both champions.

Good luck Andy and Tommy! Give us a great final!



"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: **Sunday Finals!! Roddick vs Haas!**

Normally TV times are given in eastern time if there isn't another designation. Plus that would be 3pm Houston time and that sounds like a regular time for a final.

Re: **Sunday Finals!! Roddick vs Haas!**

GO Tommy!!

I knew that he would do well in his comeback but a Final this soon??? Didn't expect that! I hope that whichever way this Final ends up it will be a tight one! Obviously, I hope that Tommy can be holding up the winners' trophy tomorrow but he's still had a great week regardless.

This could be the best Final of all 3 tourneys this week and it has the WORST coverage. Go figure . I guess we can only hope they learn their lesson for next year and spend a bit of money on the website.

PAW 2013:
Munich - 2nd place
Halle - 4th place
's-Hertogenbosch - 4th place
GSTAAD - WINNER

Yeah, tennis724.
Most of us don't want a new, expensive satellite dish that has tennis channel, but little else. 98% of us is completely ignored.
