Indian Wells

Tommy will play the winner of Calatrava and Mathieu who play Saturday morning at 10:00 AM PST. Go Tommy. We will all be pulling for you on Sunday!

BTW I saw him play in Memphis. He indeed will make you go weak in the knees. He is as beautiful and talented as a Greek God. He was staying at our hotel and we spoke with him in the lobby just before he left for the airport after he lost to Mirnyi. He really is too delicious for words - Hasilicious that is!

Re: Indian Wells

He's so Hasilicious, my love ... What did he speak of? I just LOVE his German/Austrian accent when he speaks English, and even more when he makes grammatical mistakes sometimes! Adorable, simply adorable, my precious...

Re: Indian Wells

When we saw Tommy in Memphis he was checking out of our hotel. He spoke with the front desk for quite some time. I am not sure if he was discussing his bill or getting directions or what. He had his coach Red with him and also had a tall, slim blond girl, who I suppose is his current girlfriend.

We stood back and did not disturb him while he was at the front desk. Of course we thoroughly enjoyed looking at him from behind. He was wearing tight jeans, and oh my what great buns! And of course that beautiful almost black pony tail!!!!!

Red and the girl quickly got into the waiting Mercedes but Tommy took time to sign many autographs and was quite friendly. Yes, his voice is extremely sexy. Love, love the accent. He says, "ya, ya" quite a bit. Just before he left he asked "All done now?" Honey I could never be all done with him!

Re: Indian Wells

I'm very sad that this tournament is already over for him.
I hope he can do better in Miami then

I also think Mathieu was on a confidence high after his Davis Cup performance. Always when I was watching the scoreboard, Tommy had so many troubles holding his own service games. Even the 1st set was a complete struggle, Tommy has to go awful lot deuces to even reach the tiebreak, saved a load of setpoints even in the last game.
I couldn't watch the match, but I think he was just too much put under pressure as I suppose Mathieu played a good match of his own.

Re: Indian Wells

Neely,

Over on Tommy's homepage an article in German was referenced regarding yesterday's match. They say it talks about him having a "private problem" that could not be solved. Unfortunately I cannot read German. Does it say anything else?http://focus.msn.de/hps/fol/newsausg...e.htm?id=12506

Re: Indian Wells

Hi Hasilicious,
Neely will explain it better than I can, but no, the article doesn't mention what the problem is. Haas just said that he's physically fine and it's not a problem concerning his parents. But that's all what we know at the moment.

Re: Indian Wells

He's not saying anything special about those private issues. But everything's fine with his parents and his health. I'll translate it for you, if you want to.

Re: Indian Wells

HAAS PLAGEN MYSTERIÖSE PROBLEME

| 14.03.05 |

Tommy Haas hat nach seinem Aus in Indian Wells merkwürdige Andeutungen über private Probleme gemacht, die ihn „innerlich bluten“ lassen.

Der deutsche Tennisprofi verließ am Sonntag (Ortszeit) nach seiner Zweitrunden-Pleite mit 6:7 (3:7), 3:6 gegen den Franzosen Paul-Henri Matthieu wie ein Häufchen Elend das Turnier.

Kraftlos, mutlos und willenlos präsentierte sich Haas im Duell gegen den in der Schweiz lebenden Weltranglisten-96. Im ersten Satz konnte der an Nummer 16 gesetzte Olympia-Zweite von Sydney zwar sechs Satzbälle abwehren, ehe er sich geschlagen geben musste. Doch schon hier wurde deutlich, was Haas hinterher als Erklärung für seine leidenschaftslose, deprimierende Vorstellung angab: „Ich fühlte mich schlecht, war mit den Gedanken nicht richtig beim Match.“

Anfangs stammelte er etwas davon, dass dies daran liege, weil er schlecht geschlafen habe, er schon kurz nach fünf Uhr wach geworden und offenbar mit dem falschen Bein aufgestanden sei. Auch die in der kalifornischen Wüste um einige Grad gefallenen Temperaturen hätten ihm zu schaffen gemacht.

Probleme lassen Haas „innerlich bluten“

Schließlich aber rückte der 26-Jährige mit der Wahrheit heraus. Mit eingefallenen Augen und traurigem Blick sprach er davon, dass ihn einige Probleme belasten, die eine „negative Stimmung erzeugen, ihn innerlich schmerzen und bluten lassen“. Es seien aber keine gesundheitlichen Sorgen, versicherte Haas, der zwischen 2002 und 2004 wegen einer Schulteroperation 467 Tage pausieren musste. Auch seinen Eltern, die im Juni 2002 bei einem Motorradunfall schwer verletzt wurden, gehe es gut. Es handelt sich um „mehrere private Probleme", offenbarte Haas, ohne jedoch darüber sprechen zu wollen. Er meinte lediglich: „Ein Problem wird sich nur sehr schwer lösen lassen.“

So wie vor einer Woche nach seiner Niederlage im Daviscup gegen Südafrika wollte Haas auch Indian Wells auf dem schnellsten Weg verlassen. Ziel war sein amerikanischer Wohnort Bradenton in Florida, wo er mit ein wenig Ruhe und Training auf das in der nächsten Woche beginnende Masters in Miami vorbereiten möchte. Was dem zweimaligen Australia Open-Halbfinalisten bleibe, sei die Hoffnung, dass sich alles rasch zum Guten wendet, damit er sich wieder voll und ganz dem Tennis widmen könne.


Translation (sorry that it took so long, but I had to do the laundry...)

HAAS WORRIED BY MYSTERIOUS PROBLEMS

14.03.05

After his defeat in Indian Wells Tommy Haas dropped some weird hints of private problems that make him “bleed inside”.

The German tennis professional left the tournament on Sunday like the picture of misery after his 2nd-round loss (6:7, 3:6) against Frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu.

Weak, disheartened and without any willpower Haas presented himself in the duel with the world’s nr. 96 who’s living in Switzerland. In the first set the 16th seeded Olympic Silver medallist of Sydney was able to beat back 6 set balls before he had to admit defeat. At this point Tommy’s explanation for his passionless, depressing performance has been already obvious: “I felt bad, my thoughts weren’t at the match.”

At first he stammered that it’s because of not having slept well, he had woken up shortly after 5 am and obviously got out of bed on the wrong side. Further the lower temperatures in the Californian desert didn’t fit him he said.

In the end the 26-year-old came out with the truth. Hollow-eyed and with a sad look he talked of some problems that cause a “negative vibe, that hurt and make him bleed inside.” But they’re not about his health, Haas, who was forced to a 467-days-lasting break between 2002 and 2004 because of his shoulder, assured. Also his parents, who were seriously injured in a motorcycle crash in June 2002, were doing fine. It’s about “several private issues”, Haas revealed, without wanting to talk about them. He only said: “One problem will be very hard to solve.”

Like a week ago after his DC loss in South Africa Haas wanted to leave Indian Wells by the quickest possible means. His destination was his American habitat in Bradenton, FL, where he wants to prepare for the upcoming Miami Masters with a little bit of peace and training. What’s left for the two time AUSO - semi finalist is the hope that everything will quickly take a turn to the better so that he can completely dedicate himself to tennis again.
