U.S. Open 2008 - R 064: vs. Muller; Come on!!

Here we go for the last Grand Slam of the year!

The draw comes out on Thursday, 21 August, the exact time will be announced the next days.
In fact, Tommy does not have much chances to be seeded. He's ranked at No #39 at the moment and only Ancic has withdrawn from the U.S. Open so far.

But we have to take it how it is so let's just hope the best for the draw! I'd like to see him in the quarter of the No. 2 (Federer) or No. 4 (Ferrer) because in my opinion Tommy is not able to beat Nadal or Djokovic. Maybe it would be nice if he has a Top 20 opponent in the 1st round, for example Robredo, because then he'll have a very nice position in the draw, if he is able to beat this player. Worst case would be Nadal or Djokovic in the first two rounds...So let's pray

I believe in you Tommy! You still can so some damage and you'll be able to defend your QF if your play good tennis! Come on!

Re: U.S. Open 2008 - Take it Tommy! This is your tournament!

Yeah, I think that's what Tommy wants to do, that's why he's still playing, to venture deep into a slam like the USO, to be successful, and to achieve that you have to beat top players anyway, so if that happens in the first round or in the fourth, in the end it's not such a big difference.

And just for the record: in spite of all the trouble Tommy had, this USO series was more successful than last year's. And the year doesn't end with the Open. I hope for Tommy that he can defend as many points as possible, and thus be motivated to continue playing well in the remaining year, so that he has a good position to start a new, finally and hopefully healthy season without such problems. For that, I would be glad if Tommy ended up in the Top 30 at the end of the year, and that should be his aim for the months to come.

Yeah, I guess I'm looking to far ahead, but these are just my thoughts right now.
Whatever, good luck for the Open, can't wait to see you in action again on these beautiful courts.

Re: U.S. Open 2008 - Take it Tommy! This is your tournament!

Hi,guys ! That would be good option if he gets Robredo or someone like him in early rounds...Of course Tommy as unseeded also can get very descent draw if he gets lucky,I mean he had so bad draws lately and still managed to defend some major points from last year(Wimbledon was close) and even play better USO Series as thefly mentioned...
As I said this is his favorite event,so I think that this is everything what he waited for..As a matter of fact he wouldn't played 4 tours before USO if he isn't expecting something in USO...So,I think it's about the time for us to see nice draw for Tommy or even descent one.Pity that we can't count now on withdrawals because every player wants to play last Slam of the year...It would be good if there is chance Tommy get a seed but hardly..NeverMind,we all know who Tommy is and with his game he can beat everyone on tour,so can't wait for Tommy's fav Slam !
Auf Geht's Tommy ! Los ihnen alle!

TOMMY HAAS

Yeah finally New York, best GS of the year. Tennis at the prime time for us Europeans. A prediction is really difficult without a draw this time, I hope Tommy will avoid the top guys at the beginning.

I'd like to know what Tommy plans after it. I think he won't go to Asia. Vienna or Stockholm in October could be the next station.

Re: U.S. Open 2008 - Take it Tommy! This is your tournament!

I want to mention that Marcos is out of the U.S. Open due to his wrist problem. So that is two players out already that I know of. And with a Tournament going on now who knows what things will be like at the start of the U.S. Open

I have a, shall we say, morbid personality.

But Baghdatis does not matter for Tommy because Marcos is behind him in the rankings

My goodness I lost track of Marcos' ranking But with a wrist problem I guess he hadn't been playing well so his ranking dropped. Del Portro dropped out of the New Haven Tournament. Why I don't know?

Expected one because of fatigue. I think he'll play New York without any doubt.

Maybe he doesn't, and just waits for the next small tournament to keep his streak up, since he also skipped both Cincy and Toronto ...

Thanks, thefly. I hadn't heard Hewitt's bad news. Hope he recovers quickly.
