Tommy DIDN'T Star in L.A. -Countrywide Classic - Aug 4th -10th 2008

This is a weak field Tournament where Tommy could do a lot of damage. However, having said that it now seems like when Tommy is in Tournaments with weak fields he seems to either get sick or that shoulder flares up again

3rd week in a row that Tommy is playing, haven't seen that for a while
I hope he's healthy and can keep up the good preformance, if he is, than he hsould go (very) far here.
C'mon Tommy!!! Best of luck!!

No, no, no! Not going to happen this time *pressing thumbs*

Interesting draw. Let's hope for another meeting with Roddick (and for another Tommy-victory )

Tommy Haas | Marat Safin | Rafael Nadal | Igor Andreev

Monfils | Murray | Davydenko | del Potro

Hmm, okay, a possible QF against A-Rod...Of course Tommy can win there!
Safin vs. Isner is interesting as well

Yeah, not the greatest competition, but that could be a pretty early clash with Andy. Hoped he may be higher seeded.
Still, a lot is possible. Playing these first rounds after playing on par with Nadal must feel pretty easy ...
And Young is also a lefty.

Btw, did they reduce the players field due to the Olympics?! Never seen first round "byes" for seeds at these kind of tournaments before.

but from the QF he seems to have a pretty tough way, so maybe it's not look so weak now..

Oh right, I forgot about Indy, and I hope Tommy did so too
And yes, I think they did it because of the olymipcs.

Well Andy has either been hurt or has been playing awful as of late. Tommy has defeated Andy even when Andy wasn't playing so poorly. I still think if Tommy stays healthy and keeps his head in his Matches he can pick up some points here.
Of course, a win would be nice; but that may be asking too much right now

Re: Tommy to Star in L.A. -Countrywide Classic- Aug 4th -10th 2008

Well ,of course step by step this time...First is Young who can be very dangerous but I think Tommy really can handle that one...Again,it will be nice to see him play ! From 5 tours in which he is expected to play he has 4/5 in his pocket for now,that is terrific and Washington next,so he can reach that famous 32 seed...Let's hope he can do that ! Fingers crossed !

I actually expect him to win that one, barring any injury problems hopefully. Cilic did it while playing far from the best expected from a talented 19-year old, no reason why Tommy shouldn't. The recipe for winning over Roddick for some time now has been return it inside lines and play. Out-playing Roddick after the return shouldn't be that much of a problem as it stands now, that forehand he used to maintain the upper hand after a good serve hasn't been seen in a while
