he is probably the most predictable player on tour as you always know what to expect, a great player and a great character

Haas seems to temporarily want to fill Safin's shoes as a tour tanker, if his (last two) matches against Canas are anything to go by. Of course, the US Open quarter-final was one of the most spectacular tanks of the season, wind or no wind.

As for Canas, he's just the kind of player you can back to save set point (as he did today) in a twenty stroke-plus rally on an indoor hardcourt. With the year he has had, I'm surprised there's even any dispute over him being the best comeback player of the year.

I hope that during the off season with some practice his problems with the ball toss will disappear.

He also used to hit his backhand better before the injury.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: Willy Canas d Tommy Haas 7-6(4) 6-2

With this win, he would be tying, if he's not surpassed from behind, his career high at 12#.
If he wins his next match he will a mark a new high at 11#.

And he hasn't many points to defend till Wimby 05... he will be in Top 10 for sure, very well deserved

Willy, well done!!!!

Haas made too many unforced errors in the 2nd set, especially his backhand.

Re: Willy Canas d Tommy Haas 7-6(4) 6-2

I read somewhere that Canas is 4-1 now in H2H against Tommy.

My German guys are like the cast of the Wizard of Oz:

Rainer = Lion
Kiwi = Scarecrow
Tommy = Tin Man
Flo = Dorothy

...but I still love 'em

Re: Willy Canas d Tommy Haas 7-6(4) 6-2

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.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
