Haas was really an oaf.
He had Canas on the racket and let him escape with two UNBELIEVABLE brutal errors in the tiebreak. One was an easy backhand volley that he would have had just get the racket on to let it drop in, and the other one was a pathetic error as he missed a should-high forehand shot that came down about three meters behind the net. Incredible! A 12 year-old girl would have made these points
Of course you can't win like that.
At least, Haas played a better first set than in Vienna a few weeks ago. But he couldn't deliver in the tiebreak.
The 2nd set was a brutal collapse and Haas got broken immediately in the first game. From there on you knew that Canas will never look back again.
Canas' game is just poison for Haas.
But well, Haas' season started earlier (concerning getting good results) so it's just fair to say that Canas has the better end for his own one now.
Congrats to Canas, I don't cheer for him often, but of course a good player!

yeah, Canas is developping into a nightmare for Haas. But thanksfully that Vienna 2001 match that Haas won was the most important one and it was in Haas' best career time so far.
