Indian Wells R1: Haas def. Nieminen 7-6(9) 6-4

Another crazy match in Indian Wells. Tommy had *0-40 in the first game of the match, which took 6 1/2 minutes until Jarkko held. Nieminen then had 15-40 himself before holding. Haas needed three more break points but finally broke for a *2-1 lead in the first set. Both held once until Jarkko broke back for 3 all, where Shark fell immediately behind 0-30 and was broken. Haas served for the first set at *5-4 and got broken to 30, the first of four straight breaks of serve, where Tommy served for the first set twice.

In the tiebreaker, Jarkko had a mini-break twice early in the tiebreak, which he lost. At 5 all, Haas DF'd to set up a set point for Nieminen on his serve at *6-5, which he proceeded to double fault to lose. Tommy had *9-8 and didn't take it but won back to back points from there onward to win the set.

Second set, Nieminen opened the set with an immediate break of serve. At *2-1 Shark saved two break points but got broken by Tommy at *3-2 to get the set back on serve. From there, Tommy held his service games very comfortably, and won three straight points from 30-*40 at 5-*4 to break and win the match.

Overall, a topsy-turvy match indeed. Jarkko was always in trouble on his service games and it caught up to him in the end. A big mental victory for Tommy.

Classic scoreboard action. Would have been a QF a few years back... wish it was now

Haas / The Fog / Tsonga / Brown / Mahut / Dolgo / Fed / Baker / Alund / Tursunov / Copil / Bolelli / Brands / Benneteau / Gojowczyk / Steps / PHM

At this rate Hass is going to win RG which would be bad news for my signature

Haas has never played a tie-break in singles longer than 11-9, so close today

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Nemo is the biggest tool i've seen in ages. He could be ranked 20th in ATP and loses against a 100+. This guy has'nt any weapon.
