Can Haas win Wimbledon?

This would be his best chance, right? He won Halle beating Djokovic. He was up two sets to love against Federer. If he were more mentally focused, he could have won that match. Going into Wimbledon, he's playing well. Nadal's still injured. This could be his best opportunity, although that chance is very small.

Now let's not get too far ahead of ourselves

I can't really see him getting further than a QF at best. Much will be down to what kind of draw Tommy gets.

Roger Federer. Legend.

He won't be around for the second week. Hope this helps.

I believe JMDP has more chance than Haas.

Not while Robredo is around.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Can Haas win Wimbledon?

If he serves like these past two weeks and play like he has been playing he has a good chance of reaching the semis if he doesn't have to play Nadal (bad matchup) in the way.

If that is the case I declare a rivalry between us from now on. I wont give up the woman I love before she marries one of us. Let the battle begin...

To start with I need to know who this woman is and where I can find her fully naked....
