Re: Tommy news

Oh great that is good to hear I was afraid he was hurt yet again! But I think Tommy is pretty much starting to put the wraps on his tennis career anyway

Re: Tommy news

Let's face it with Tommy's age and all his health problems I don't think many Tournaments will be giving Tommy W/Cs anymore

I know I have that same feeling I really don't care all that much for Wimbledon myself, but I'm happy for Tommy

Re: Tommy news

Hey Tommy fans,

It's almost Wimbledon time of year again! I'm Al, a presenter and journalist with access all areas at the greatest tennis tournament on Earth. I've have been a massive Tommy Haas fan since the very beginning - my dog is even named Hasi! Just want to let you know that my official annual Wimbledon tweeting will begin once again on June 24th so make sure to follow me over on Twitter. I'll be tweeting live throughout the Championships with constant updates from matches, press conferences and behind the scenes at both the tournament and from wonderful Wimbledon Village.

You, yes you, can also ask questions to your favorite players! I will tweet before I attend each press conference and let you submit your questions. And I'll ask the best questions directly to your favourite players. So go follow me and spread the word to all tennis fans...it's going to be a lot of fun. And there'll be LOTS of updates on Tommy!!

The Wimbledon Tweets 2012 start on June 24th!!!

Here's my twitter page:

Re: Tommy news

Hey, Als, that's great! Have fun watching Tommy.

By the way, why don't you have an Irish flag rather than a US flag next to your name?

Re: Tommy news

I tried to get an answer from twitter, but does anybody know why Tommy has chosen so many clay events in the upcoming weeks?

Prolly cause they are all close to Germany, and he'd like to spend as much time as he can get there, but its still strange considering that he didn't play those in previous years...

Examples: Mercedes Cup over Newport
Hamburg over Atlanta
Kitzbühel over LA

Re: Tommy news

Terrific win for Tommy today. It was interesting that the German fans had a clear favorite.

Lugburz8, your explanation makes sense. Clay is also easier on the joints but my guess is that is a distant 2nd reason if it factors in at all. I wouldn't think that the Olympics would have affected this decision, but maybe they do - maybe the Haas family is staying in Europe all summer.

Good luck in the final, Tommy!

Re: Tommy news

Coming after his great win over Roger today it is hard to say this, but Tommy still has to know the time left on his tennis career will not be all that long. So since he has spent so much time in the U.S. perhaps he wants to let the people in Europe see him play more before his career does end.
