Re: Introductions thread

Name: Tommy
Gender: male
Age: 26
Playing tennis: yes, now and then
Favs: Tommy H., Nicolas Massu, Fernando Gonzalez, Nicolas Kiefer, Marat Safin (Ivanovic or Dementieva, I'm not a big WTA fan)
Movies: horror or films with Bud Spencer & Terence Hill
Sports: tennis, football (soccer) and hockey

I saw him in 1996 for the first time. He played against Michael Stich in New York, Tommy's first Grand Slam. And I was really impressed...up to know.

Re: Introductions thread

Name: Michael
Gender: male
Age: 23
Playing tennis: used to, not so much anymore, but want to play more often again ...
Favs: really primarily Tommy Haas; I generally enjoy watching good tennis, especially also Roger of course.
I'm not really into WTA.
Movies: puh, I'm an extreme movie buff, can't just name some favs in one line.
Sports: tennis (go figure), (beach)volleyball, oh, and forgot basketball.

maybe you guys could write some words about how you came to be a Haas fan in the first place, and why, or what it is you love about his game?

I for one ... well, I can't really remeber the "how", I was still a kid when he burst onto the scene, I just remember that he was a cool guy. The appreciation of his great game came to me more and more as I began to know more about and truly love the sport.

What's so great about Tommy? Easy. He's one of the last all-court talents, a complete player. Another factor certainly is that he may well be the most tragic figure in tennis ever. One can only imagine what would have happened if he'd stayed healthy throughout his career. And the way he always comes back ... just inspiring.

Re: Introductions thread

Alright, then I will introduce myself as well.

Name: Nina
Gender: female
Age: 22
Playing tennis: Not seriously, every once in a while for fun
Favorites on ATP: Tommy, Rafa and Safin (surprise), also love to watch Federer, Gonzales
Favorites on WTA: Vaidisova, Jankovic, Sharapova and Henin
Movie: hard to pick out a few, in general I am into all kind of Mafia movies
Sports: tennis, soccer, skiing

How I got a fan of Tommy? Good question
It's basically like Michael already said, he was there when I was growing up and I watched him and I started to like the way he played, the way he was/is.

Tommy Haas | Marat Safin | Rafael Nadal | Igor Andreev

Monfils | Murray | Davydenko | del Potro

Re: Introductions thread

Oh yeah, I forgot, thanks for reminding, Nina, another guy I really like and always route for is Marat.

Speaking of which ... I just have to think about some footage from Halle two or three years ago, showing Tommy and Roger at training, then behing joined by Marat, and the three laughing, having fun. They seem to get along very well together, knowing each other for a long time ... now to hang out with THESE three guys for an hour or so and play some tennis, that would be a dream.

Re: Introductions thread

Why Tommy?
Well,ever since I started to watch tennis, I always loved players that plays one-handed backhand...
So my first man was always Tommy,but there was another gentleman on the court his name is Mr Tim Henman...So Tim and Tommy were my all time favorites..(I used to call them T&T )
Tommy was kinda perfect player for me,his style,all-around player,that gorgeous backhand,and perfect backhand lob !So, It is simple ! I just have liked him back then,I like him now,and I shall like him forever...
C'mon Tommy...Show them no fear !
NeverMind the Bullocks...Here comes the TOMMY HAAS !

Re: Introductions thread

Thanks all for replying

Likes the story about Tommy, Marat and Roger. Those three are awsome, wathing a practice of three of them together is a dream for me

About how I've become a fan? Well, I don't remmmeber, he has always been around and before I started to really be intersted in tennis, I only knew the name (Something like 3 years ago..) and once I watched him play, and it was just beautiful. Not only him, but the tennis, so smart and he made it look so simple and since then he's one of my faves

Re: Introductions thread

Yeah, than me one more time. How I became a Tommy fan:
Well, I startet playing tennis seriously in 1999 and so I began to watch more and more tennis on TV (before that I only watched Grand Slam finals or something like that because I tought watching tennis is pretty boring) and exactly this was the time when Tommy began to rock the ATP Tour . After his injury, I was very impressed how he came back and since his comeback I really became a Tommy fan
