In a match that was very important for Roger's chances at regaining #1 ranking, he didn't really show up after being ahead 3-1 in the first set. Simply a poor performance from Roger in basically all departments.

Tommy deserves a ton of credit, though, he's come back so far so quickly!

Tommy did play well. That definitely shouldn't be discounted or forgotten although his opponent didn't bring their best effort to the court. Tommy has been very solid all week and the final game, when he fell behind 15-30 second serve, I thought he may be choking but he kept it together. True talent never goes away.

The point to break serve in the ninth game of the second set was one of the points of the year.

anyway, I hope this doesnt happen at Wimbledon, but chances are it will. Only worse maybe given how shit Roger has been on Wimbledon grass in the last 2 years. However, this loss for Roger doesnt make his chances any less or more. He was never the main favourite for Wimbledon, and would need to bring some of the best tennis he has played in years to win it. This doesnt really change much because his Halle form was not going to cut it anyway.

Hope dies last however, so fingers crossed. Hope both the guys play well at Big W.

Fed never learns : he should have tanked vs Raonic. Now he played full tournament after exhausting clay season while other top men were resting and charging their batteries . And he got only 150 points from it... Difference between Wimby SF and final is 480, difference between QF and SF is 360 points. Maybe he will need energy wasted in Halle in London ?

But he didn't seem to mind as much now.

Haas' performances in the last month and a half should practically guarantee him a spot in all Slams up to Wimbledon 2013. :)

Good performance by Thommy.
He could read Feds serve quite well and hit some amazing DTL backhand returns.

Fed was just atrociuos today. He couldn't keep the ball in play: Too many
errors with his forehand and he couldn't slice over the net to save his life.
His movement, especially his backward movement was really terrible.

On a funny note: At one point during a Haas service game someone from the audience shouted: "Thomas Haas schlag ein Ass!", which means "Thomas Haas serve an ace!" and on his next serve he really served an ace.

Worst match I have seen Federer play in years: ABSOLUTELY everything was shit.

FH: you saw it for yourselves, like 300 UEs hitting it long or into the net
BH: costed him the 2nd set break
Serve: wasn't getting many free points off it
Volleys: netted some stupid ones, especially one game point in the game he got broken in the 2nd set
Return of serve: no comments, Haas was holding every fucking game to love or 15

Fed ... oh well for 3 years, it's been the most depressing period for me.

Everytime he hits a shot (I mean really hit not just rally, and even :rolleyes: ) I (and seemingly he) expect an error.

When I see a player like Haas who seems to be able to just hit his shots like on a "normal" surface, it looks like a miracle to me :eek:

Not at all what I feel as a Fed supporter : it looks so hard on this surface now, so impossible to play.

it's not only as some said that he can be taken by the speed of the others' shots on this surface, he himself cannot HIT ... except his serve.

Even Haas's forehand looks better than his.

I've never been a big fan of grass but now Wimbledon is the most depressing tournament of whole year. Even the green colour is depressing.

It just fits when Nadal wins it. Last year Djokovic gave me the only smile of this tournament.

At least during the Olympics there will be other competitions to follow but during Wimbledon ??

Depression for a few more weeks ... Fed is unable to play on that surface.

Tommy did play well. That definitely shouldn't be discounted or forgotten although his opponent didn't bring their best effort to the court.

of course he brought his best effort on court ! Have you seen him play better on grass in the last years ? I haven't.

He really tried but that's just what he has left on this surface.

Maybe he could make more with more confidence (the way he tried to lose his serve in the end of first set showed how low this confidence was) but this pathetic loss and his pathetic game will not help his confidence for sure.

It was not an off-day : he didn't play better this week, only it was the first time he had to face a player playing that good, able to keep the ball in a rally and even hit it.

Manequin75
06-17-2012, 02:38 PM
slower grass at Wimbledon probably helps but we are still talking about a QF at best for Fed

but if draws a danger man in R32/R16 he is in trouble coz he is not playing well, sharp or confident right now. so it hardly matters.. i mean he has zero chance of winning Wimbledon and thats all you need to know i suppose

he's ripe for a beating from the 1st decent player he faces

perfected the art of over-reaction :). I don't think fed was as focused on winning halle as he would be at wimbledon. And playing a friend sometimes reduces the competitive spirit further. Dont think this result - win or loss - matters at wimbledon. Roger will be the favorite at Wimbledon as he is a natural on this surface. But if Rafa and Novak survive week one then in the second week Roger will be favorite # 3. Rafa & Novak are more likely to be upset in the first week on grass than fed.

Federer certainly isn't the favourite for the championship. Nearly 31 years old, hasn't gone past the quarter-finals in his last 2 attempts, has been in 1 Slam final since his 2010 Australian Open win and could barely beat Nadal in the Wimbledon final at the end of his peak level in 2007.

Yes, there's a possibility that he can win the championship but to call him the favourite is incorrect.

Fed has been playing absolutely terrible since he won Indian wells, lets be honest (played 1 good match - v Seppi in Rome)

he was nothing special in Madrid and should have lost 1st round there, RG was absurdly bad and this week he could barely return serve and was always shaky behind his own serve

he has completely dropped in form since March and lets not even mention how bad he's played the last few Wimbledon's

It's interesting that Haas never achieved a single final on grass up until 2009 (I don't think so, anyway) and has excelled on the surface since, considering all of his injuries and the fact he was 31 before his first final is quite surprising.

It's nice to see that he is more eager to approach the net in his later years and make use of his good volleying skills. (It looked like that forehand volley under the tape today at 4-5 30-30 could have cost him though!)

I just say what I think : I perfectly know what you say is the truth, I just say that in my opinion, it's unfortunate because he should concentrate on the US Open, and I don't like at all that he will have no time to rest between Wimbledon and the US Open series like in the past.

I would just like him to prepare for surfaces where he can play well, but that's just my own humble poor opinion, now as I know that my opinions often hurt Fedfans on this forum, I will shut my mouth up after opening it to release my feelings. I will have nothing to release in next weeks for d the pleasure of many Fedfans.

I've never been a big fan of grass but now Wimbledon is the most depressing tournament of whole year. Even the green colour is depressing.

It just fits when Nadal wins it. Last year Djokovic gave me the only smile of this tournament.

At least during the Olympics there will be other competitions to follow but during Wimbledon ??

Depression for a few more weeks ... Fed is unable to play on that surface.

What a sad thing to read :hug: Hope Fed realises the torment he is dishing out to his fans :sad:

What a sad thing to read :hug: Hope Fed realises the torment he is dishing out to his fans :sad:

hope not :shrug:

I think it's for him that it's the saddest not being able to find his grass anymore ... on the surface he's mostly loved in the past.

I'm certain that if there's one tournament he would like to win before retiring, it's Wimbledon :cool:
Maybe he even wants it too much, puts pressure on himself.

I don't believe at all the "gift to Haas" delusional bullshit : of course after the match he just made his best to look happy on this nice day for his good friend :)

But as for us, it's not his fault, he does his best, that's just life, he just can't find his game on grass, maybe also physical issues, poor for him :shrug:

it's unbelievable what he does at his age, only one bad surface and he can still reach Halle finals, and if he's lucky, Wimby quarterfinals, that's great actually :shrug:

we've been too much wasted :)

What pisses me off about Federer is that he pulled the same shit 4 years ago. He was doing well and all and then all of a sudden started playing shit before the Olympics. Roger was playing lights out earlier. But the closer we get to the Olympics, the worse he is playing. I mean let's face it. Raonic should have beaten him if he had any return game

Clay can no longer be considered Roger's worst surface. Grass is. Powerful stuff from Haas. He's been playing the most beautiful and daring tennis the whole week. At his best he can destroy anyone aside from Nadal. Proved it yet again today. Fantastic to see Haas so happy :hearts: :worship: :hearts:

federer awful , looks like his grass game since 2009 was suffer a kind of change.........

maybe are is movements and reflexes in this surface.

but after indian wells or maybe madrid , federer`s game back tho his worst level in 2010.

horrible forehand , backhand , movement , slice , everything!!!

but , I don`t understand the problem with his serve , he was serving very very well and now is a shit!!!!!! some kind of injury?????? back problems again?????

People who are saying Federer tanked this, didn't care, will be fine for Wimbledon, etc., they will see the truth when he loses in Wimbledon. His game sucks on grass for years now, this wasn't just one odd loss. I think it will be a miracle if he wins Wimbledon.

LOL what a clown. Haas is younger.Not that smart are you, Noletard. I never said Fed was the older one. I said young Federer thrived on this surface, which is true. Both Fed and Tommy has declined since those days. This is not rocket science.

Manequin75
06-17-2012, 05:22 PM
LOLing at the overreaction. This outcome was hardly a surprise considering Roger and Tommy's relationship. Roger has said many times their families are so close. He does know Haas does not have too many chances to get another ATP title. Haas has said that a title when his daughter watches means so much to him.

I can imagine Federer being Federer, father of twin daughters himself, not considering a win here meaningful enough to rob Tommy -- the 34 year old veteran -- of his one last hurrah, in front of his home crowd.


I don't think that was the case here. Federer would not disrespect an opponent by tanking the match to him. That would mean cheating the sport of tennis and all viewers of a competitive match. As they say the highest form of respect you show your opponent is if you play to your best ability.

Wow, Federer is done. He has absolutely zero chance of winning Wimbledon and I'd say the quarterfinals is the absolute best he could do at this point.

Federer certainly isn't the favourite for the championship. Nearly 31 years old, hasn't gone past the quarter-finals in his last 2 attempts, has been in 1 Slam final since his 2010 Australian Open win and could barely beat Nadal in the Wimbledon final at the end of his peak level in 2007.

Yes, there's a possibility that he can win the championship but to call him the favourite is incorrect.

You are right - overall he is the third favorite behind Novak and Rafa. But I think that plays out in the second week. In the first week when the grass is fresh both Novak and Rafa could be on upset alerts moreso than Fed. So I have Fed as #1 favorite only until the first week ends and both Novak and Rafa survive. After than Fed reclaims as #3 position among the favorites.

you will feel differently when wimbledon rolls by and roger begins strongly. He made the final - so he didnt have the intensity to win a 250 - the other guy wanted it more. For Haas it was like a grand slam at home. Roger got several matches under his belt and conquered Raonic yet again. Look Im not saying he is the TOP favorite and will surely win it Im willing to wager that he will atleast make the semis :)

That means you're essentially saying that it is likely Nadal and/or Djokovic will be eliminated during the first week. That's never happening.

Plus, it's not like Federer is invincible during the first week any more, considering he nearly lost to Falla.

Wow, how badly did Roger play?

Not extremely bad overall, but his forehand was completely off, which cost him the game. I also never had the impression that he was willing to bring his best game to turn that match around, he seemed to give up quite early.

Deserved win for Haas however, he really showed that he would be much higher without those many injuries. Playing that way against Federer at 34 was very impressive. He didn't even choke when he had to serve out the match.

Corey Feldman

Haas= really solid

Fed= other than the first four games, Awful

3-1 up and bp for double break, soon as he missed it his game fell into a dark hole much like the first couple of sets v Nole at roland garros

something ive noticed about Fed is he never ever wins a set when he's lost a break advantage

Can't believe Roger got beaten by a 34 year old. Haas is very talented. He should have destroyed Fed at the 2006 AO. I recall him being very catty post match especially re Jim Courier's extreme Roger fanboy antics that year I'm actually surprised Roger chose to forget and forgive winding up as Tommy's best bud :facepalm: Maybe that's why he lost today. RN would never have forgotten nor forgiven those remarks. Tommy should also have won that 2009 RG match. So all in all from a match up perspective this is not at all unexpected. However from an age point of view, this is a huge shocker. The only good news is that it probably encourages Roger to keep going when he sees people like Haas playing so well at their age :yeah:

Haas started badly, even made 2 DFs in a row, he started really playing when he faced a breakpoint for double break (made two great backhands when Fed was just rallying, unable to really hit the ball himself) and from that on, it was clear that Fed couldn't raise to that level.

He tried to hit the ball more in second set but he still was less good than Haas, and keeping on spraying errors.

it's not that he "didn't bring his best game", it's that his best game on grass doesn't exist anymore.

He never played better during the week.

Imo he's not third favorite for Wimbledon, Tsonga may be injured but at least Berdych has more chances than him, and Murray.

Beautiful result. I've always enjoyed watching Haas play, and a great story for him to win a title at the age of 34 over a guy that had beaten him in all of their last 9 matches.
