No one is talking about Tommy Haas but the Australian Open is by far his most successful slam, he has definitely had his best results there. He is a 3 time Semifinalist at the Aussie Open and this year he has a nice draw. There is no one in his section of the draw that he hates playing. In Head to Head he leads Tsonga 1-0(last year in two sets), he leads Soderling 3-1(only time he has lost was due to retirement on clay, the other victories were rather easy), leads Almagro 1-0(easy two set win), he is 2-2 with Djokovic but he has beaten him the last two times that they have played (both times last year). Also leads Gasquet 2-1, Youzhny 3-2(one of his loses was due to a retirement), Robredo 2-1. Tipsy will be a test in round 2 (but there is no way Tommy is losing to him, not in 3/5).
This is a very favorable draw for Tommy Haas, he likes playing against everyone that is in this section.
I think he might surprise a lot of people once again.
He is always really dangerous at the slams and especially down under!
