As usual the less talented and less entertaining player wins.

What else is new?

Yes the service game in the 2nd Set was really bad by Tommy, but in the decider Anderson played a great Return Game to get the Break. And the South African served with 81% first Serves. Incredible!

Haas looked pretty good for most of the much but pretty much tanked the last few games. Gramps was getting tired.

Anderson's serving was pretty insane.

Good match. Anderson's impeccable serving was too strong in the end.

You mean the player with more rhytm and form? Clearly that was the difference today.

Didn't watch all of it, but from what I saw I conclude that 1) Anderson served great, and 2) Haas didn't choke, but merely ran out of gaz towards the end of the match.

Errrr better serving form maybe. Haas was winning the majority of the rallies especially in the second set.

Re: Stockholm R2: Haas chokes to Anderson 7-6 4-6 4-6

Good and entertaining match. Incredible serving, but also lots of long and good rallies. Both played really well, but Haas had 2 bad service games that cost him the match.

Anderson was very consistent and played very well from the baseline imo. Best I've seen him play in a while.
Lots of winners, also with his backhand. Can do some damage here, playing like this.

His knee was taped severely, is that serious?

Good to see Haas play well like this, BTW. With a little more match practice, he can really compete on this service.

Only watched patches of the 2nd set, but saw Anderson winning quite some rallies there. Of course Haas is the better baseliner normally, but didn't really see any difference today. Anderson made very few wild errors that he usually makes.

lol he dropped serve btb sets to love at 4-4 offcourse it was a choke, maybe not a choke like verdasco with 40-0 and 3 mp.s vs Soda but still he choked . He played well and served great except when it really mattered.

Re: Stockholm R2: Haas chokes to Anderson 7-6 4-6 4-6

Choking at least indicates that you're the much better player. He wasn't.
And choking normally involves blowing a big lead or mps, like you said about Verdasco. That wasn't the case either.

So this wasn't a choke at all. Just a good match with two pretty equal players, where one player just lacked the rhytm to deliver in each and every service game.

His knee has been taped for a lot of his recent matches. Anderson characterised his knee injury as "cartilage wear and tear" and said that he needs to keep a careful eye on the problem as he plays on. "There's a lot of treatment involved, but I'm happy with the progress."
