Haas in the 4th round will be extremely tough - in fact i think his Wimbledon run is over, Haas was getting his form back in rehab and Fed has no warm up tournie this year

Haas will win in 4 sets i think - Fed will get one set probably

I hope you are right. At the very least, i'd like to see someone put up a fight and test Fed a little. Safin was up to the challenge in the 3rd set, but it was way too late by then.

Very insightful post, indeed. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
Aye, to prevent any misunderstanding, I actually meant that endless 'hahahahahhaha"-post! :angel:

Back on topic: if Fed plays like he did against Safin, Haas won't stand a chance. However, much of Fed's overwelming play of today was due to his brilliant serve - if that serve is OFF when playing Haas, he might have some sort of a chance.

Not that I see that happen, though. :angel:

PS: I'd like to point out that the guy's name is HAAS, not 'Hass'.
Usually I don't care that much about typo's, but in German, 'Hass' actually means 'hate', and I don't think any player deserves being called something like that. Just a reminder.

Fed absolutely OWNS every player that he will face from now on mentaly except for Nadal, thankfully for Federer he is a better player than Nadal on grass so in the remote case they play again, federer may lose a set just because he chokes with Rafa, wimbledon last year proved that, choked the second and third set and got back to his senses on the fourth. However, Rafa wont get to the final, this wimbledon is basicaly won already for federer. nobody has more skill than federer, when fed loses its because mentaly he screws up and starts making dumbass errors. Safin was his greatest threat, fed himself admits this, if Safin has a "Crazy good" day, even if fed plays his best, its going to be very even. (just look at that third set, as even as you can get)

After what I saw today against Safin, might as well give the trophy to fed already, I am almost certain he wont lose a set in this major..

:lol: at the original poster's little dig at the Safinated thread. Haas has a very difficult time returning Federer's serve. Out of his 8 losses to Fed, Haas didn't even get to breakpoint in 3 or 4 of them and didn't break in 6 total matches I believe. Fed has won 90% or more of the points off of his first serve twice. Haas would have to do something completely different and spectacular to even come close to winning.

Haas can have any opinion that he wants, and losing is not gonna make anyone feel better, no matter who its against. Just because he doesn't bow down at the feet of greatest ever, he disrespects him. After all Federer is only a tennis player, no matter how good.

Tommy needs to talk to himself more often. Maybe then he would realise that grass is for playing on, not for smoking. Tragedy and injury are never good. Personal opinion: I think Tommy's more talented than Safin - more touch, moves better, more variety of arsenal. Marat used to be able to outpower you, but Haas used to be able to simply outplay you.

Haas is like 30 and hasnt even reached a grand slam final, he got totaly destroyed by Gonzalez in his favorite tournament this year. I understand you are a fan of him and everything bt face reality, Haas has always been an avarage barely top 10 material player. I can somehow understand Safin fans when they talk about his great potential which has not been lived up to, Safin straightseted Sampras in a USOPEN final, Safin has won 2 grand slams, Safin was the last to beat Federer in a nonclay grand slam. But what the hell has Haas ever done?

Your posts are usually good and I agree with most but Haas has nothing to hurt Federer with these days. Federer is just all round better than Haas, Bh to BH yes, Haas is better but Federer is better at working the rallies to a position where he feels comfortable than Haas and that's the way it is.

All I've ever said he that Haas has massive talent, a super backhand and a complete game. I've always said that Haas' mental game is what has stopped him from capitalising on his big chances. I've never claimed he will win a grand slam, because a player with a mind like him is unlikely to. Hes also had horrible luck and numerous injuries. Aus Open 2002 was his slam but a rain delay saved Safin and then he went on to waste this gift by losing to Tojo in the final.

Well I guess we will have to agree to disagree because if you look at the issue of match-ups Haas is not the sort of player that tends to beat Federer and it's the same reason Robredo can't beat Roger due to the match up.

Just look at the H-2-H. Roger leads it 8-2 including 7 victories in a row, Haas is an ideal match up for Federer.

06-30-2007, 03:03 PM
Federer matches up well against almost everyone and he has similar H2Hs with everyone that has played him a lot since he started his dominance. Haas has consistently played close matches against Federer which shows hes capable of pulling out a win sometime or another. Robredo isn't in the same league as Haas, and the scorelines against Federer show that.

Haas is far from having a complete game, why do all fans of lesser player talk about this mental thing as an excuse? Some players dont have the potential to be a grand slam champion, Haas is one of them. His game is too limited, without power and skills to beat the best. At best he can win against a Davydenko in his favorite grand slam, that is the height of his potential.

I agree Robredo is a worse player than Haas but that must be the most avarage player in the top 10 you could find.

Players with more game than Haas: Federer, Nadal, Nalbandian, Safin, Roddick, Gonzalez, Baghdatis, Murray, Djokovic, Berdych, Gasquet, Hewitt

Haas is in company with players like Youzhny, Ljubicic, Ancic and Blake.

Yeah, you should see Nadal destroying Haas backhand the only time they faced. Federers backhand is barely a problem anymore against Nadal. Federers backhand was better than his forehand in master cup and Australian open which is unbelivable. Go watch the match he played against Blake in the final, I have never in my life seen so many beautiful backhand winners.

You can't beat someone if you can't return their serve. Haas can't return Fed's serve. I don't believe he has broken him on grass and didn't break him on several other occasions.

06-30-2007, 05:58 PM
The greatest backhand show you will ever see:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PzApmLdI5E

Look at the variation, can Haas hit those crazy backhand halfvolleys from the baseline? Turn impossible defensive positions with unbelivable slices and get back in the rally? Return hard 1st serves with great slices puting his opponents in an instant in a difficult position, I am sure Haas would like to know how Federer does that.

Federer can do so much more than Haas with his backhand even if Haas may have a somewhat safer topspin backhand there is no way to compare it with the magical, surreal backhand Federer got.

haas' return in general has never been all that great. Lets say federer has a terrible serving day, which seems to happen more consistently these days. Can haas still win? Federer can just outhit haas from the baseline. He can speed the pace of the rallies and haas with his weak topspin is dead.

He has done exactly this in the past when he was nowhere near as good. I think he has had a couple of matches serving less than 50%, but won 90% of the points when he got that in.

Why are you guys acting like I've said Haas is the favourite to win? Can't you fedtards grasp the concept of Federer possibly losing? I've never said Haas is going to win, just that hes got a chance.

u r so funny! why r we fedtards acting like that?? read what u have posted in the title thread. damn!

n i somewhat believe that ur obsession with haas is not b/c of his tennis...:devil:
