QF - Murray vs Haas - who will survive?

Both Haas and Murray have had very strong starts to the year. Haas is arguably in the form of his career. Murray's young career is still on an upward trajectory. They're both in form and confident and a SF place in a Federer-less half of the draw is at stake.

And they've neved played.

How will Haas handled the Murray variety? Will he stay calm and work his opportunities and attack the second serve to break Murray's service games down? Or will he get wound up and play into Murray's hands.

How will Murray cope with the Haas powerful, accurate hitting and confident play? Will he be able to force Haas into tricky positions on court or will Haas dictate the play too much for that?

Who will survive?

Re: QF - Murray vs Haas - who will survive?

Hey scoobs - should have made the poll public.

I voted Haas in three anyway. I think Murray won't be outplayed, but Haas' awesome form will be the deciding factor.

If Tommy stays confident and doesn't let Murray provoce him he will win

GO TOMMY HAAS

Re: QF - Murray vs Haas - who will survive?

Is Murray going to sit back and let Haas dominate as he has in his first three matches in Indian Wells, or is he going to take the game to Haas as he did against Chela and then Nadal at the Aus Open?

Murray has the weapons to make it a close match. Whether he actually uses them is a different matter.

Re: QF - Murray vs Haas - who will survive?

Has Haas actually lost a set since his memphis campaign, except his match vs Fed? He is really in blistering form. It's really cool You'd say this form could challenge Fed but Fed already showed he just beats Haas in straights...

I think Haas will probably win though it will be close.

I think that Murray plays better when he is on the defensive and as such i think it would be a big mistake to attack Haas. Even the examples you give almost back this up. He just defeated Davydenko in straight sets without attacking but he lost that match to Nadal where you think he did attack (not that i remember Murray as being particularly aggressive in it).

Based on their current form Tommy should win pretty easily.

Re: QF - Murray vs Haas - who will survive?

A battle of the two ARodKillas. The winner of San Jose vs the winner of Memphis.

Should be a very interesting contest. The winner of this match will win the title, IMHO.

Haas in 2. It won't be close. He will spank Murray and make him look like an amateur.
