Tommy is playing the US open!

As Wimbledon ended for Tommy , I thought lets start a new thread.
So if anyone has news on Tommy's recovery you can put it in here

Lets start with the full translation of the German article.. (and again, real German ppl please tell if i translated it wrong)


Germany's number 1 has a torn abdominal muscle (2,5cm long). Because of this he had to cancel the 1/8Final against Roger Federer.
Haas: 'I'm counting on a rest of 2 to 4 weeks' .Though it seems like it's going to take more time. Tommy's ex trainer Nick Bollettieri said: 'There won't be a play for the next 6 to 8 weeks' This will threaten the start of the US Open (august 28th-september 9th).
Prof. Kabelka (tournament physician at the Hamburger Rothenbaum) says: 'It's a dangerous injury. Mary Pierce and Venus Williams had to quit for a couple of months when they had this same injury. When you start too soon, it's possible you tear it again easily.
At the moment Haas gets treatment from his physiotherapist Klaus Eder in Donaustauf. When he will return to the tour is unknown.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Deutschlands Nr. 1 hatte sich eine schwere Bauchmuskelzerrung mit einem 2,5 Zentimeter langen Riss zugezogen und musste sein Achtelfinale gegen Roger Federer/Schweiz absagen.
Haas: „Ich rechne mit zwei bis vier Wochen Pause.“ Doch jetzt sieht es so aus, als würde es viel länger dauern. Tommys Ex-Trainer Nick Bollettieri verriet: „Er wird sechs bis acht Wochen nicht spielen können.“ Dann wäre der Start bei den US Open (27. 8. – 9. 9.) in Gefahr.
Prof. Dr. Bernd Kabelka, Turnierarzt am Hamburger Rothenbaum, warnt: „Eine gefährliche Verletzung. Mary Pierce und Venus Williams mussten damit mehrere Monate pausieren. Wenn man zu früh anfängt, kann gleich wieder was reißen.“
Haas ist zur Zeit bei Physiotherapeut Klaus Eder in Donaustauf in Behandlung. Wann er auf die Tour zurückkehrt, ist ungewiss.)

Re: Recovery after injury, how is Tommy doing? Can/will he play the US Open?

Translation is correct.
Let's hope he's not suffering too much, because a torn muscle is very painful

I hope Tommy is not in pain and will heal well But he had better not try to rush back and play the U.S. Open--please I think Tommy's year is pretty much done He is going to be missing out on some of his best Tournament win chances There isn't much left after the U.S. Open If Tommy hadn't pushed so hard to play Wimbledon, he might have been playing in the Masters Cup

I hope Tommy can come back soon
so long time going to without him in tennis

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!



Zero tolerance against dopers!

I don't know if 2 weeks are enough to recover. I mean it's not only a pulled muscle. But we have to wait and hope for the best.

Yes I agree with you. I think he'll return in few weeks.

And he must return, we'll need him in Davis Cup (btw Kiwi too).

Bad decision imo. But I know, there were some problems between Kiwi and Kühnen (Tommy too).

well.. Kühnen is the one to decide but in my opinion he'd look stupid not to choose Kiwi if his comeback goes on like it started.... healthy Kiwi & Tommy plus Kohlmann & Waske in doubles would have a chance to beat Russia

Unless I'm very much mistaken this injury to Kiwi was no where as bad as Tommy's injury. Also I wasn't meaning Tommy wouldn't be playing for months I just meant he is going to be missing out on the Tournaments he usually does well at
