Hass the healthy **** vs Rafael one Knee Nadal. Bagelling Kudla is an ominous sign for grandpa Rafa.

Hass back on RLA where he belongs.

Nadal. I'm not buying that knee injury story, Rafa.

Nadal has to make a decision here: Does he want to play one-legged football with his friends or does he sacrifice his second leg to bring Haas down?

Haasbeen v/s martyrrafa - a no-brainer.

There is no knee injury. He said he felt some pain but now it's gone.

He's not injured. He's just crap at the moment and wants that excuse when he gets beaten by a better player. His ass is still sore from the Djokovic bumming last year and wants more time to rest.

your giving this match way too mych hype than it deserves, haas is just another generic round 2 opponent for rafa and im sure the scoreline will reflect that.

You're one of the funniest posters but please spell Haas properly (at least in the title). Nadal loses 11-12 games in this match I think.

When was the last time Haas took a set from Nadal? Not a good match-up for him.

The question is how will gramps counter Hass' killer frame backhand:

Nadal usually makes Haas best weapon (backhand) look really poor, this fact alone should mean Haas got no chanse at all. One handed backhands vs Nadal's topspin on slow courts is just not a fun storyline.

Haas has never even won a set against Nadal and he has played 4 times on hardcourts against him when he was younger. Sorry, Haas backhand to be ripped apart by Nadal once again...

Haas has one last great fight in him. That means Nadal in 4

Something out of the ordinary will have to happen for Haas to have any chance in this one, as much as I'd like him to emerge victorious...

Rafa in an easy 3. Haas just doesn't match up well against him.

Would be highly surprised to see anything different than Rafa in straights, perhaps involving one set with a TB.

Tommy will bring one last fight in probraly his last Aussie open. So I think he will win a Set but Nadal will advance in 4!

Haas lost twice in straights against Nadal in Cincinnati of all places, nuff said.

Rafa will win in 4 sets and will get off to a slow start hence Tommy will take the first 7-5 then it will go 4-6 3-6 3-6 to Nadal. Hard to see Rafa's best with his knee complaints.

The only thing more expected than seing this guy banned, it's that Nadal will straight set Tommy.

The mis-spelling of Haas's name in the title and the opening post is very irritating. You would think the guy's main fan would be able to spell his name!

Yeah, you got that wrong. The first I looked it up was 8 a.m. in the morning CET. The schedule said Haas vs. Nadal 3rd match RLA, day session.

Haas has never even taken a set off of Nadal. Outcome is NID
