Poor leng jai. He must be nervous already. Tough luck for Hass.

Re: AO R1: Haas Vs Qualifier

I'm disappointed Bye picked up a new injury. Bye is much better than Qualifier

Bye snubs the Slams year after year. Can't handle best of five so just doesn't play or fakes an injury. I think Qualifier is better. It's a shame they NEVER draw each other.

I also feel Lucky Loser doesn't play enough, he's got a good record against Bye.

I'm disappointed Qualifier is being discussed more in this thread than Hass.

Re: AO R1: Haas Vs Qualifier

I would like to know which qualifier it is. On the ATP website, 6 players have this name. QUALIFIER QUALIFIER10 seems the strongest one.

QUALIFIER QUALIFIER10 is a mug and has done nothing since it burst onto the scene at the 1969 Paris Indoor Tournament. QUALIFIER QUALIFIER1 beat it in straight sets in Hamburg in 1969 and then QUALIFIER QUALIFIER10 gave a walkover next time they faced each other two months later in Barcelona.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)

Re: AO R1: Haas Vs Qualifier

Qualifier and his 16 variants will be tough to beat.

Re: AO R1: Haas Vs Qualifier

This thread is making me laugh til I hurt. I don't know whether to go along with the flow or feel bad for Haas.

Yes, but lucky loser has a more impressive bulge, even though qualifier looks much hotter shirtless !!1

Re: AO R1: Haas Vs Qualifier

Qualifier replaced by Kudla. Increases Hass' chances IMO.
