Re: AO R2: Hass Vs Nadal

Nadal has to make a decision here: Does he want to play one-legged football with his friends or does he sacrifice his second leg to bring Haas down?

There is no knee injury. He said he felt some pain but now it's gone.

He's not injured. He's just crap at the moment and wants that excuse when he gets beaten by a better player. His ass is still sore from the Djokovic bumming last year and wants more time to rest.

Re: AO R2: Hass Vs Nadal

your giving this match way too mych hype than it deserves, haas is just another generic round 2 opponent for rafa and im sure the scoreline will reflect that.

You're one of the funniest posters but please spell Haas properly (at least in the title). Nadal loses 11-12 games in this match I think.

Re: AO R2: Hass Vs Nadal

When was the last time Haas took a set from Nadal? Not a good match-up for him.

Re: AO R2: Hass Vs Nadal

The question is how will gramps counter Hass' killer frame backhand:

Re: AO R2: Hass Vs Nadal

Nadal usually makes Haas best weapon (backhand) look really poor, this fact alone should mean Haas got no chanse at all. One handed backhands vs Nadal's topspin on slow courts is just not a fun storyline.

Haas has never even won a set against Nadal and he has played 4 times on hardcourts against him when he was younger. Sorry, Haas backhand to be ripped apart by Nadal once again...

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Something out of the ordinary will have to happen for Haas to have any chance in this one, as much as I'd like him to emerge victorious...
