Tommy starts the US Open Series - Los Angeles!

The draw must be published in the next few hours. Good news: Stepanek and Gonzalez both cancelled the tournament so Tommy will be the TOP SEED in Los Angeles!!!

Haas on his way back

Re: Tommy starts the US Open Series - Los Angeles!

Well, it's really hard to keep your expectations in check with this tournament. To put it carefully, he should win a little more than "some" matches unless he has a major meltdown or is injured. And furthermore, a first round bye? Has LA always been a 28 draw? I doubt it.

Well, at the very least these are good conditions for a smooth start on HC. We'll see what happens.

Hat-Trick?

Can't wait.

Re: Tommy starts the US Open Series - Los Angeles!

My goodness when I saw Tommy seeded #1 in the Tournament with a 1st RD BYE I almost fainted How long has it been since we have seen that And how great it is to see it again

I have a, shall we say, morbid personality.

It'd be HIGHLY appreciated thx in advance


Well,I hate work of mine,don't have time as used to have ,but I haven't missed anything within this board so it's better that way

Can't wait for Tommy's match,this has to be a great tour after very disappointing exit from last year to Donald Young
Now ,as #1 seeded player it would be ridiculous to put Tommy aside as he really have that chance over all players in th draw,a possible encounter with Safin would be very cool ! ah dammit I can't wait!

TOMMY HAAS

Philipp Kohlschreiber - Stanislas Wawrinka - TB - NM - GD - EG - IS - DL - RF - DT - JWT

Re: Tommy starts the US Open Series - Los Angeles!

So Jesse Levine is Tommy's first opponent. He beat him last year in Indy 7-6, 6-2 ... Levine's a lefty, so it might again take Tommy some time to get used to him, but in the end it shouldn't be too much trouble for our man.

Re: Tommy starts the US Open Series - Los Angeles!

Well the good news is that Tommy was there yesterday! Bad news is I missed him. They only have one practice court, so I staked it out all day, not knowing if he'd practice there or not. After about 6 hours I figured he wasn't going to show so I got up and walked around. I came back to the practice court and was watching Ginepri practice. Someone saw my shirt (I had a couple tshirts made that say "Auf Geht's Tommy!" with the German flag on them) and said Tommy Haas is over there. So I head over but he'd just gotten into a car. Dang it! Oh well, will try again today. His first match should be a night match tomorrow vs. Levine.

Re: Tommy starts the US Open Series - Los Angeles!

Success! After 6 hours I finally saw Tommy!!! He came walking by and I asked if I could get a pic. He said yes, so I found someone to take it but the strap was over the lens so I said wait a sec and Tommy goes "yeah, the thing's in the way". So funny. So she takes the pic and I tell him it's my birthday and he wishes me a happy birthday. Then I asked if he'd sign my shirt and he did, he said he liked it. He was so nice and so sweet. I wished him good luck. Wanted to tell him everyone from his website and MTF are supporting him but it's a wonder I got out as much as I did since my brain was mush! Will try to tell him tomorrow. He plays the second night match after the Bryan brothers. I'm still on Cloud 9 right now!!
