Can Tommy Haas finish inside top20 by the end of 2012?

Tommy Haas fans know why we don't care about his rankings anymore.(as we used to)
For many of us, being inside top32 is enough, so he can be seeded at Slams..

But anyhow, it will be interesting to see if he can pull this off once again after doing the same back in '09...

Ofc he needs to stay healthy. The reason I didn't mention it, is everytime I crossed my fingers for him to stay healthy, he injures himself somehow.
That's why I stopped mentioning his injuries etc, trying not to jinx anything

Well, he could be 29th if he wins tomorrow. I sure hope he does.

yup . I mean, Haas is a much better player than, let's say Tipsy (with all respect to Tipsy)... He just needs to stay healthy and do some smart scheduling.

Re: Can Tommy Haas finish inside top20 by the end of the year?

noticed haas has Kitzbühel in his schedule. will he play it?

perhaps he should better skip it and make the trip to toronto right after tomorrow's final. i reckon toronto will be a good opportunity for him to grab some points considering that it's likely that the top players will be tired or don't play at all.

nope, Tommy puled out from Kitzbuhel next week...

However, he will play Washington. If Germany still persist not to take him to Olympics, as Mayer cancelled it...

Re: Can Tommy Haas finish inside top20 by the end of the year?

If he wins tomorrow I can't see him failing to make it inside the top 20, especially with the motivation he's playing with, like every tournament could be his last. I really did not expect such a great comeback. He has plenty of opportunities to gain points.

Nah he doesn't have, I'm sure Germany already said their final word on it.
Its just in my head really, I just can't believe they did not nominate him, makes no sense at all
