Roger Federer is playing some stunning tennis but so is Tommy Haas. The Swiss Genius has dominated Haas for the last 4 years but Haas shocked Federer in Kooyong Exhibition a week ago keeping his undefeated streak in Australia against Federer. Haas fans hope for a Haas hatrick while the Federer Fans hope Fefderer will finally get a win against Haas in under the Australian sun.
Who do you think will win this one?

Will Haas, without the burden of heavy locks, create the bigest upset of this AO 2006?
