You're obviously annoyed but you're saying what he says is more important than what he does on court?
So if Haas disliked slow courts,
why did he reach the clay final like in Rome?
He served better to reach finals.
He should've served more confidently in 2009 French Open to get the chance to win it all.
He clearly didn't feel confident because
of a decade of hearing how slower courts hurt many guys.
Well, he doesn't like high bounce but he also
throws loopy returns to Ferrer.
Haas kept moonballing the volley up.
Ferrer didn't hesitate like Haas did.
Ferrer's not too stupid.
Ferrer moves very well here. Haas cruised by Simon because Simon doesn't like hitting & serving fast. Obviously, he Simon thinks it's too quick of a court to return Haas' serve.
The only factual thing here by you is that Haas did throw loopy backahnds, but only because Ferrer was on the other side, thats why he is all around player. Even if he uses 99% of the time flat bh and flat shots in general, he's not shy to try anything else if that is what it takes to beat someone like Simon or Ferrer.
And tbh the title in Rome, If I may be so bold, I wouldn't be surprised if it was faster than Miami and IW even on clay. Hell even these days some clay courts LOOK faster than Miami and IW.
And to settle a deal about Haas benefiting more from slower courts (wich you are absolutely wrong), just look at the career achievements, and you'll see he's way more efficient on faster courts.
