Incredible display by Tommy. Some amazing shots, awesome movement and plenty of winners.
Although I was kinda expecting Tommy to win in 3 sets, but never thought it would be this easy and smooth.
Good job Tommy

Haas man handling clowns is always a joy to watch.
I am the Nelson Mandela of MTF
Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
Tommy is amazing and this will do wonders for the ranking!
Sure thing, just as back in 2009. But imho its not about the ranking anymore, in fact it stopped being about that long ago as he said.
I'm just happy to see him on courts, seeing every single backhand shot as it was the last one
