He's 34 and still in R3 in a GS (looking good in it too). Maybe he knows something you don't?

I think you're not fully understanding the intended use of flopping.

Doesn't look painful to me...I think it feels good when it can swing freely

Are there any other players who play(ed) like Haas?

Who cares, he still plays one the best tennis to watch. He still has it, and I'm sure he'll deliver just fine in the upcomming grass season.

I'm never going to be able to watch a Haasi match again without thinking about this

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

The flopping is painful... for me, I ended up with a sore injury just watching his matches at RG this week!
