Nick's Picks: Day 11 || Haas in 4, possibly 5 sets... :o

Tommy Haas vs. Lleyton Hewitt

Hewitt has looked like his past performances and has come alive again. He is moving extremely well, earning several free points from his serve. Once again, he is pumping his fists and raising his arms to those faithful Australian fans in the audience.

Haas has regained much of the form that he had when he was ranked No. 2 in the world just a few short years ago. His shoulder is healed, enabling his serves to reach 125-130 mph. Haas has realized that he needs to visit the net more and more, while still taking advantage of his killer forehand and serve.

Prediction: Hewitt will not melt down and knows that a longer match favors his style of play. Haas must have a very consistent serving day and, most important, act at all times as if he will be the winner. The match will have long rallies with all variations of play, including Haas' biting backhands. Haas in 4, possibly 5 sets.

Guillermo Coria | David Nalbandian | Juan Martin del Potro


Tomas Berdych | Marcos Baghdatis | Gilles Muller | Novak Djokovic | Janko Tipsarevic | Nicolas Kiefer | Dudi Sela | Richard Gasquet

It's a big match and therefore Haas will be found wanting and Hewitt will win.

Nick has such an affection for Tommy, it is sweet. Yes he was a pupil at Nick's academy but I also think that he is overjoyed that Tommy is finally coming back after his setbacks.

well I don't think that a couch could have a good relationship with any player after he leaves you...

Nick always goes for people who trained at his academy, it's a true fact. He picked Sharapova to make it to this year's USO semis over Justine. And last year he predicted Malisse over Roddick in the round of 16. that's just asking for it. Though a Tommy win is realistic, I'm not surprised Nick went with a Haas win here. I just want a good match.

According to the A&E Biography of AA a few weeks ago, Nick fired Agassi--not the other way around. Nick even admitted this on camera. Apparently there was some tension between them for a while, but then Nick just out of the blue sent AA a letter via his manager telling him he would no longer be coaching him. AA was stunned.

I had always assumed it was the other way around too.

This is true. But there's a lot of messy stuff that preceded that letter, including money disputes and accusations (running both ways) of disloyalty. Suffice it to say that there's some bad blood there.

Haas is in troubles now (2-6 -0-2*). He's not able of manage the windy conditions out there right now...
