Roland Garros R1: [Q] Haas def. Volandri 6-3 0-6 6-4 6-4

Filippo had three BPs at 4 all in the third set and did not get a return in play. From there he lost five straight games and Haas had BP to serve for a bagel final set. Filippo came back well and got to deuce at 3-*4, had plenty of opportunities, but didn't make the most of them. Disappointing, but Tommy played a good fourth set overall.

Tommy made a lot of errors (66 errors) but was the one dictating most of the play, constructed the points efficiently and moved Filippo around a lot, served well when he needed to. Against someone with more weapons I don't know if Tommy would have won, but Filippo didn't have enough to hurt Tommy in this match.

Filippo isn't a poor player. He played a pretty good match, kept with someone who is more talented and has the weapons. He would have beaten several other players, I'm happy with his performance, except on the big points.

Pippy was just horrendous...Clearly, that second set wasn't relevant...Haas probably wanted a breather before finishing the last two...It amazes me how Pippy is still in the Top 100 when he plays like a poor WTA player...So many wasted chances, just never seems "present" for an entire match...Mentally weak, no consistent weapons, just very poor overall...Glad to see Tommy disposing of irrelevant "haas-beens"...hahaha...Poor thing that Fee-Lo, now he can't shove it in our faces how Pippy rose like the phoenix from the ashes and beat Haas...Sad clown face for Fee-Lo V...Karma is a bitch, though...Oh well, Pippy and Machado can commiserate about thier irrelevancy, disgusting chokes and just laughable games...This result was always NID :haha:

Great to see Haas advance here. He asked for a WC, wasn't given one for some random useless French player, went through qualifying and now he's in R2. Delightful.

:lol: at Filo V.'s favorites losing

Filippo had three BPs at 4 all in the third set and did not get a return in play. From there he lost five straight games and Haas had BP to serve for a bagel final set. Filippo came back well and got to deuce at 3-*4, had plenty of opportunities, but didn't make the most of them. Disappointing, but Tommy played a good fourth set overall.

Against someone with more weapons I don't know if Tommy would have won, but Filippo didn't have enough to hurt Tommy in this match.

Then the score in the title must be wrong:p

3 all in the third set.

I think about one or two of my faves are remaining. But that's how this sport goes, it's ugly 95% of the time.

Nice to see the trash taken out.

I guess Tommy felt generous in the 2nd set and gave Pippy a bone.

Looking sharp ;) Another one-handed backhander next, and hopefully in 3rd Round as well :P Treat for my eyes ;)

RG site has the 3rd set as 6-4 ;)

So it was 4 all, I knew I was right.

But the scoreboard of the match had a 6-3 third set, hence I typed 6-3 here. They errored!

Haas had too much firepower for Filippo, who wasn't consistent or solid enough on the important points to make up the difference, that was all.

Both guys still playing decent in their 30s, not the best match but nice to see them out there.

The better backhand won.

The second set was one of the worst sets I've ever seen the man play. Obscene winner to error ratio. Not even the avalanche of gimp forehands could stop me from soiling my panties after every backhand winner.

I have little doubt Haas will win the tournament after seeing his suave back socks.

Tennis wins when another talentless fixer is out of a grand slam tournament.

man... volandri's serve has gotten even worse... if that was at all possible...

volandri should be allowed to throw the ball over... even underarm would be better...
