Re: Haas withdraws from Australian Open
Tommy Haas just says he is not ready for a best of 5 match at a Grand Slam tournament. Also it is:
Ergo, not the end of the world. He states that he still believes in a comeback. His shoulder is holding out fine, but his serve seems to be the problem. He doesn't want to risk anything with an early, or too early, comeback on tour. Therefore, he is taking it step by step. And he will still be the number nine of the world, if he comes back.
So, to answer your question, he says he is fitter than he has ever been, but that his serve is the big problem that prohibits him from making a comeback.
I agree with you that it is a pity if he would have to leave the Tour because of an injury. However, I do think he will come back!
