Re: Robin Haase Cheering Thread

Good run of Robin in Kithbuhel! Finally he shows his real potential. Let's win this tournament, Robin!

Only pity is that he just doesn't make it into the MD in Montreal, so he will miss next week. But a week later a lot of points are for picking up in the next masters!

Re: Robin Haase Cheering Thread

He already elected not to play Montreal qualies. He's also playing Bundesliga this Sunday and wanted a deep run in Kitzbuhel. As far as I can tell this is his first semifinal in an ATP tournament. Major chance to reacht the final.

Chela and Montanes will probably prove too good, since Robin hasn't played that well this week..

Re: Robin Haase Cheering Thread

First ATP title for Robin. He didn't play that great especially his serve was letting him down at times but luckily Montanes wasn't great either. At the beginning of the week I really wasn't expecting him to win his first title here since his form heading into this week hadn't been that great but glad to be proven wrong.

Re: Robin Haase Cheering Thread

The Biofile Robin Haase

by Scoop Malinowski

08.08.2011


Robin Haase won his first ATP World Tour title in Kitzbuhel.

Robin Haase reveals a funny tennis memory, his favourite player to watch and his hobbies and interests in this biofile...

First Tennis Memory: "I was two or something. A long time ago. The first thing that I remember is that I played with my parents just on a court. Hit as many balls as I could."

Tennis Inspirations: "When I was younger, because my family all played tennis, I always had to go with them, with my older brother and my older sister, just when they practiced. So that was my inspiration of course, to play as well. And from the top players my idol was always Agassi."

Nicknames: "Most of the time they call me by my last name. In Holland they call me Schlubber."

Hobbies/Interests: "Read a lot of books, watch a lot of TV series. I love to watch a lot of other sports as well. Of course when I'm home I like to do stuff with my friends."

Favorite Sport Outside Tennis: "That's difficult. Any ball game actually. Basketball. And I like ice hockey as well to watch."

Last Book Read: "Sampras actually, on the plane to here. Now I'm reading Agassi."

Favorite Movies: "The classical movies, I like The Shawshank Redemption, thrillers."

Favorite TV Shows: "I'm really into Heroes and Lost right now. And I like Entourage as well."

Pre-Match Feeling: "Actually I try not to think about the match as much because then I get nervous. I just like to hang out with my coach and not stay alone in the locker room, and be around people. Then, 5-10 minutes before the match, warm up and that's when I really get into the mindset of the match."

Favorite Meal: "Lasagna."

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: "I don't know [laughs]."

Current Car: "I drive a Fiat, it's a sponsor car (red)."

Greatest Sports Moment: "I beat Andy Murray in front of the home crowd (Rotterdam)."

Most Painful Moment: "That I was injured and not able to play for 1 1/2 years, 18 months."

Favourite Tournament: "I like Australian Open. It's my favorite Grand Slam. The atmosphere, I love the country, I like the warm weather. Always some really nice matches. As well, Rotterdam and tournaments in Holland I really enjoy."

Closest Tennis Friends: "I'm good friends with Jarkko Nieminen, Michael Russell, Cilic."

Funniest Players Encountered: "I don't know."

Toughest Competitors: "Oh, for sure, they're at the top, so it's Federer, Nadal and Davydenko actually."

Favourite Players To Watch: "I enjoy watching Nalbandian. (Why?) I love his game. He's maybe the most all around player in the whole world. I think if he wouldn't have been that injured that much and would have been fitter, for sure, he would have been higher ranked than what he has been."

Embarrassing Tennis Memory: "I fell down after a win in Rotterdam. I jumped up in the sky and I fell down [smiles]. I beat Murray first round, then Berrer after a set and almost a break down."

Funny Tennis Memory: "Oh, a lot. Almost every day. That's why I enjoy it. I saw a guy miss like 15 or 16 break points and didn't know what to do. So after he had another break point and then at the second serve of the guy, he just turned around. And then watched. Then the guy hit a double fault [smiles]. (Where?) At a Future in Israel."

Best You Ever Felt On Court: "I played a good match in Amersfoort against Felix Mantilla once in the first round where I thought it would be a really long match. And I really killed him. (Reaction from him?) He was actually quite nice. I played him a week after, then it actually was a three-setter in a long match. I beat him as well. Not long after that he quit. I saw him a few times after, he was really a nice guy."

People Qualities Most Admired: "Being honest. Yeah, of course, when I'm playing in the tennis world, being competitive. Or be a sportsman."

Re: Robin Haase Cheering Thread

Great read Thanks for posting It's sad because we all his injury problems he has not only not been able to have the career he might have had plus I'm sure his physical condition will shorten his career Does anyone know what Schlubber means? I don't think my Dutch expert is around right now because she is getting ready to take a holiday. (As the Europeans use the word holiday in the U.S. we would say she is going on vacation )

Re: Robin Haase Cheering Thread

Robin is ranked #45. I think he fell off at the end of the season some because it said his ranking was down 3 places. I think he was hurt again at the end of his season

Re: Robin Haase Cheering Thread

Well Robin is scheduled to play in the Aircel Chennai Open and the Apia International Sydney. And those Tournaments are back to back so I guess Robin must feel he will be healthy
