Re: Haas sighted BOATing in Melbourne

This might be showing my true colours but if he takes a set of Nishioka at Kooyong today I think we can officially say he's back.

Nope - forbidden in the regulations.
According to him it's a possibility that he'll play at IW.

Left - Indian Wells Factsheet
Right - ATP Rulebook regulation 5.01.B



As great as it would be to see him playing all season, I cant see that one happening - unless ATP change their rules!

BOAT Director it seems. Someone asked him as his AO presser and he said he might. Classic Thomas.

Re: Haas sighted BOATing in Melbourne

Has this ever happened before? A TD playing on the professional tour? A Master tournament director nevertheless

That was literally the only way to prevent him from getting the trophy, those guys at ATP are good.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Haas sighted BOATing in Melbourne

Director Hass + peak Paire + 38 degrees + first round potentially makes for a legendary match.
