Haas defeats brave Petzschner 4-6 6-3 6-2 7-5

The guy put up a brave fight, came back in the last set, from a break down at 5-4.

Petzschner sure showed he's got the game to move on the ranks. A lot. Pity all the wasted BPs scattered through many many receive games. If he keeps healthy and interested we'll hear more about him.
But Haas is just on another league right now. Congratulations to him on surpassing a tough test.

Too bad that Haas was on a very high level today. It was impossible for Philipp to control the game. The good thing is he put up a show at the end.

Yep. Surely he made a number of heads turn towards him after today's performance.

Re: Haas defeats brave Petzschner 4-6 6-3 6-2 7-5

Very entertaining match. The crowd enjoyed it. So did I. Especially when Petzschner came back, when Haas was serving for the match the first time.

Petzschner with slice bhs and at the net. And I don't know how many lobs!
Too bad that he couldn't hold that last game, but of course that's where you see the difference between a (normal) good player and someone who is used playing on the big stage.
Barely saw him using any (two handed) top spin bhs. How does his bh compare to, let's say, Lopez?

Saw the match, good serving at times from Haas. Still, he'll have to do better if he wants to be a contender for the title IMO.

Well duh.

Haas is never going to be a contender for this title.

Re: Haas defeats brave Petzschner 4-6 6-3 6-2 7-5

Haas' increased level at some point and his experience pulled him through in this match. Maybe the serve statistics (especially aces) don't reflect it, but I had the feeling his serve was working well during some important situations, and there were quite a lot of difficult and long games.

Petzchner with a good display and he didn't go down too easily. Hope he doesn't fade and manages to improve and make some noise in the future

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Haas defeats brave Petzschner 4-6 6-3 6-2 7-5

The disappointing thing about Petzschner was clearly his forehand imo. He had too many miss hits on his forehand. Another thing was that I expected to see some more drop shots, as it's one of his best shots for sure. The net play and backhand was good yesterday. Even the few double handed backhand were okay and the slices were nice, no unforced errrors there.

Petzschner himself said he's a bit disappointed because he couldn't play his best tennis. I hope he'll be back on his top level next week.

I also noticed that not many people here were watching this match. I only missed the first two games of the first set.
