That was a really fun exho!
Both guys were smiling and having fun while showing all the weapons in their arsenary, complete with Pete's jumping smash and Haas' BH dtl passing shot.
Pete can still serve constantly at over 120 mph, sometimes well over 130. His second service winner late in the second set was 123 mph!
In the match TB, Pete first led 5-2 but then threw two DF. Haas had his share of UE too. It was touch and go and at Pete's MP, 9-8* with Haas serving, Pete's Nike trainer came off while he was approaching to the net!
So Nike owes him this match!! In the end, Haas won but that was a really enjoyable exho.
But Pete has changed. Who could imagine him even in an exho high fiving with the crowd after winning a spectacular point and going on to sit in the front row and eat popcorn?
I wish I had seen this. I'm glad Pete at least had some fun.
According to what's on the SAP Open website, James pulled out of the exhibition due to an injury in his doubles match today - but it must be minor since it says he's still playing singles.
