Wow, nice first round win for him!

He defeated Julien Benneteau 3-6, 6-0, 6-2.
Maybe more to come? Let's hope so.

BTW...new hair cut! He looks amazing!

Roddick next...

Wow, he looks so much better with short hair! And a lot younger! :inlove:

The last time he cut his hairs was before the AO 2006 where he had a big fight against World No.1 Roger Federer in Round 16. Maybe this form came back because he cut his hairs :) Looking forward to watching Tommy live against Roddick today...First time since the ATP MS at Paris 2007.

Good match from Tommy, but pretty poor stats from Roddick.

Please upload it Four:Love, I'd like to see it again. ;)

Tommy I love you!!! :D:D

It was a quite good match from Tommy, he played unbreakable and very impressive baseline tennis with some awesome shots, especially when he broke Roddick's serve in the second set he played unbelievable balls in order to pass Roddick 3 times at the net (What is the right term for the German "Passierball" by the way??). I guess we can say: HAAS is BACK!! Roddick was sometimes very near to complete frustration. That's the way I like Tommy's opponents...:devil: ;)
Now against Verdasco or Hanescu. Well, he should be able to pass into Round 16. But you know...it's Haas and Haas is good for surprisings. But I'll hope the best :). He has a quite low draw to advance to the Quarterfinals to set up a mouth-watering clash against World No.1 Roger Federer. That would be some tennis... :)

Well, so far, he must win R32 at first :). I'm looking forward to watching Tommy again :)

Good night to everyone from Germany ;)

I've fully come to terms with being the worst Brit in the world, so I can say this loud and proud with a clear conscience.

Can't wait for the Fed match!! I'm way more excited than I would be if it was Andy playing! I support on Murray brother (the better natured, more attractive one) That's enough surely? ;)

C'mon Tommy! :rocker2: That W/O @ Wimbledon must have riled him somewhat, I hope he gives Roger hell! :devil:

In the 2nd set, he got broken when serving for the set, but then breaked again to win it.

Tommy will play not before 4:00PM which means that the match is expected to start exactly a midnight here in Germany. However, this will not be the case, 'cause the schedule is kinda very optimistic if you have a look at it...

STADIUM 1 start 11:00 am
[3] Z Yan (CHN) / J Zheng (CHN) vs [7] B Mattek (USA) / S Mirza (IND) - WTA
Not Before 1:00 PM
M Fish (USA) vs [7] D Nalbandian (ARG) - ATP
Not Before 2:30 PM
[4] M Sharapova (RUS) vs [2] S Kuznetsova (RUS) - WTA
Not Before 4:00 PM
[1] R Federer (SUI) vs T Haas (GER) - ATP

I think he won't play before 5:00 PM Indian Wells time.

Bad luck for Tommy :sad: Get well soon.

Should have been an entertaining match between him and Roger.

It's such a pity that the tournament has to end in such a way for Tommy. He had a great run and has shown that he is back.

Hopefully he recovers in time for Miami :)

Well as long as this only happens against player against whom he would lose anyways...;) :(

Seriously, if it's not his shoulder, stomach, etc., it's something else. Is there any kind of ailment which he didn't have yet? :sad:

Get well for Miami. A lot of points to win there.

I'm not gonna venture into GM, I fear there'll be trolls talking sh!t about him just trying to avoid Federer. 2 Walkovers in a row. That sucks.

I just woke up and played my recording of the match and wondered why they were showing a replay from last nights Nadal/Blake match...then I ventured onto MTF and found out why this is...:sad:

Tommy is so unlucky it's just not fair! :mad:

Hopefully he gets better and is ok for Miami. :yeah:

Yes, but this time it's critical.. He needs to gain points anywhere he can.. If he's healthy he shouldn't tank..
