Great entertaining match, rollercoaster in the fifth.
Yet another 5 setter in the Australian Open 2010...
Next up will probably be Tsonga.

01-21-2010, 06:49 AM
Watched only last set.... huge breakaton and mugathon, but last game was dramatic.

01-21-2010, 06:50 AM
I hate Tommy Haas so much.

Tsonga is going to beat him so bad.

01-21-2010, 06:51 AM
What happened in that 2nd set, Janko?!?!:mad:

01-21-2010, 06:51 AM
they were breaking and breaking back in the fifth set :lol:

good victory for Haas ;)

01-21-2010, 06:52 AM
What happened in that 2nd set, Janko?!?!:mad:

from 4-2 to 4-6 0-3 :mad:

01-21-2010, 06:52 AM
Great for Tommy! Janko :sad: :hug:
Bad that they had to play each other so early.

01-21-2010, 06:53 AM
5th set was like watching Todd Martin VS Todd Martin.

01-21-2010, 06:54 AM
A mere 78 UEs for Haas then.

When Haas found his range and stopped donating 2 free points every game, he was generally a bit too strong - pretty much as their respective (slam) ability would suggest. He sucked for the first 1.5 sets and 4th set though.

Last set was alternately comic, and a bit embarrassing as they both repeatedly choked.

01-21-2010, 06:58 AM
Haha, the epitome of a match which nobody wanted to win.

Tipsarevic's reaction to being broken the last time was so funny.

01-21-2010, 06:59 AM
from 4-2 to 4-6 0-3 :mad:

Well at 2-4 down in the second there was a period in which Haas started playing unbelievable, he made like 25 winners in 7 games(that he won in a row). He was not missing anything than all the sudden he started to miss everything, in the 4th Tommy could not get a ball in the court.:o(20 unforced errors)
It was the craziest match I have ever watched. I am just glad Tommy survived it. Tipsy has a lot of game.
Tommy has to really pick it up for his next match but something tells me he is going to go far in this slam. He really gets pumped up after matches like this.

That was so scary!!!!:eek:

This match had like at least 7 chokes and in the last set nobody could hold serve.

01-21-2010, 07:07 AM
Wow that was ugly. But I'll take it.

01-21-2010, 07:16 AM
Thats the last time i bet on haas, guy almost killed me.

01-21-2010, 07:17 AM
Always good to see Haas win.


01-21-2010, 07:26 AM
I didn't expect Tommy to win it
Good one !

Phewww.. I'm almost glad I didn't see it live. Come on Tommy!!

01-21-2010, 09:24 AM
Most fun I have had watching a match in a while.

01-21-2010, 09:28 AM
This had 5 sets written all over it from the start. Disappointed I had to work today otherwise I'd have been all over it.

Not seen any of it but it would have been a great match to be there.

01-21-2010, 05:35 PM
Too right the better player won- Haasi had no excuses losing to this one-dimensional clown.

Eurosport player is worth having at slam times:
