Tommy advances in Long Island

Gutsy Haas Wins in Three
Defending champion overcomes shoulder pain

Haas survived a second-set tie-break.

Defending champion Tommy Haas recovered from a sluggish start against Ramon Delgado to win through to the third round of the TD Waterhouse Cup at Long Island Wednesday. Haas, who beat Pete Sampras in the final here last year, won 1-6, 7-6(4) 6-4.

What the Players Said:

Tommy Haas: "I didn't find my timing early in the match but I came through and I was proud of myself to do that. The shoulder is like a roller coaster at the moment - up and down. At one point in the second set I thought I may have to default, but I hung in there. I was very close to calling a trainer to have my arm massaged.

"It's a pain in the butt having to worry about the shoulder rather than being able to go out there and focus on the match. I'm fighting against two things - my arm and my opponent."

~~~~~
i'm not sure if i'm happy or sad. he won his match , but he is still in pain on the court!

"Ferrero's going to be a tough one for anybody. This guy is the real deal already. He's got a chance at going a long, long way. This guy could be the best Spanish player ever; that's saying something." - John McEnroe, June 2000

Hi Leo! Hi IluvRogi!

Let's see him through to the trophy ceremony. The draw in Long Island is looking more and more pathetic and I want someone I really like to win it.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

Haas def. Calleri 4-6, 6-2, 6-1

Tommy started off slow again tonight, but he rebounded to take the last two sets with ease! GOOOO Haas!

Tough Tommy Wins; Chela, Corretja Advance

Defending champion Tommy Haas claimed a courageous three-set victory against Jarkko Nieminen Friday night to advance to the semifinals of the TD Waterhouse Cup at Long Island. Playing in pain all week with arm soreness, Haas rallied from a set down for the third consecutive match to win 3-6, 6-4, 6-2.

Tommy says he won't play tomorrow if his arm is still hurting in the warmups like it did today. Good decision!!!

Good luck for the US Open!
