Hey PMAC. I think you should concentrate more on winning the Davis cup then posting on MTF.

Well Look at the final four Haas looks like the favourite. I don't see Robredo beating Haas. Tommy actually looks good finally he finally doing well in a big event. Tommy looks like the favourite based on natural talent to win.

Davydenko is in better form IMO.

Haas was in a winning position against him in the U.S. Open but just could not maintain his level he needed to close Davydenko out. Davydenko was as solid as a rock and never went away- that is the type of player that drives Haas mad. THAT is what I'm talking about

Oh, and in a best of five set final that will give Kolya more time to wear Haas down :)

I don't think Haas is going let it go to 5. Haas still managed to finish the last sets of the UO when he was cramping up at respectable 4-6's. Even though I picked Davy to win this tournament before it even started, if it ends up Haas versus Davy, I'll have all my vcash on Haas.

The trouble with Haas has always been maintaining consistency and winning form against players who are very good counter punchers. And of course in the crunch at crucial moments he sometimes has a tendency to melt down.

Kolya has the tedency to tighten up in those situations too but if Haas plays against Kolya the way he did in those first two sets of their USO clash he will win. I just doubt he will be able to maintain that kind of level of play needed over a three out of five set match against a player as rock solid as Kolya. (provided of course that he remains his usual rock solid self).

But anyway, before we even get to that stage there is still a little matter of getting their respective semifinal opponents out of their way for that match up to materialize :)

More like he sacrified many of his precious pink shirts. :lol: This will be a tough one for Haas and I dont see him winning in three, so he needs to take the match in two sets.

Jumpman23
11-04-2006, 05:26 PM
he needs to send a thank you to Nikolai and to Hrbaty. I am disappointed in his peformance, he had an opportunity to advance on his own terms, that is what champions do, they rise to the challenge when the stakes are at its highest. Instead he faulters and advances to Shanghai based on a default, b/c Ancic and Haas did not pull through.
Blake is nothing but a tease.

screaminhead
11-04-2006, 05:32 PM
i agree in a way...he's been known to choke in big tournaments but he's pulled through in some and his performance this year is admirable, though not in the tournaments that matter most...maybe the way he qualified in Shanghai will make him rethink his confidence and mental guts and turn the tables around :)

Well James did win 5 titles this year and reached 7 finals. James beat Nadal this year in straight sets, he beat Rodidck twice, he beat Hewitt, he beat Robredo and Daydenko and Haas this year as well. James also be Ljubicic for the first time in Bangkok. James had a breakthrough year. But the truth is James has to improve on his play in the big European events. If James had done better in the slams he wouldn't of needed to scramble and get the break that he did today. However, James was sick last week and was unable to play. Yeah James can be a flake at times but he's finishing the year in the top 10 for the first time in career. James brokethrough in 2006 can't fault him on that. It is Tommy Haas that is the major dissapoinment right now. Haas just gave up against Hrbaty. The British commentators were blasting Haas and making jokes about him they don't buy him being injured at all. I don't think James has ever done what Haas did today. Haas just quit because he was losing and that's disgraceful for a professional to do.

Wimbledon 2006 3rd round 5th set versus Mirnyi

Just because James stayed on the court and lost 6-0 doesn't make it less pathetic.

Also to say that Haas purposely did this just because he was losing is ignorant.
There are stats there. Haas was serving under 50% on first serves.
That is absolutely awful on an indoor surface.
That doesn't happen in a perfect serving conditioned area unless something is wrong with the player.
He was lucky to even get to 6-4 in the first set.

If Blake lost against to Clement, he would be No. 9 and Ancic No. 8...
Match in the second round in Paris was crucial :)

It was pretty obvious something was wrong with Haas. He totally dominated for the first several games then suddenly face a deuce he stumbles over to his bag for a drink of water in mid point. Never seen him do that. He could have did like Roddick and faked injury. Now that was pathetic.

Haas has demonstrated in career that all the media hype has failed to materialize. Its always something with Haas its some kind of injury when the truth is he's just a wimp. Pete Sampras puked on the courts at the 1996 US OPEN and there was no way he was going to pull out of that match and he didn't. Sampras went on to win the US OPEN that year. Steffi Graf has played matches hurt as has Navratilova. People act like players can't play with injury and still find a way to win. Haas has no heart and whatever excuses people come with for Haas shameless and childish behavior today will not prove he's just not championship material.

Germany had hoped that Haas, Keifer, and Schuttler, were supposed to great champions for Germany and yet all three proved otherwise. And I believe their downfall was their lack of mental toughness and the ability to fight through the so called pain and still try to win.

Tommy Robredo was I believe more injured then Haas today but he stayed on the court because he wanted Davydenko to actually earn his victory and win the match. Robredo may not be the best player out there but he wins a lot of matches because he has a lot of heart. There was no way Robredo was going to retire to Davydenko despite his injury. Haas is guttless and John Barrett's got it right Haas got his ass kicked and Haas as usual as a wimp chickened out.

I LOVE NY, I LOVE USA, I'M A James FAN

IF I'M RIGHT,

James will be No. 1 after 2007 US OPEN, or maybe later on as TMF

Before he got No. 1 Ranking, He will beat Roger twice in TMS

last year, after I saw Roger beaten James 7-6(7-3),7-5 James lost to Roger During W & S Financial Group Masters............I knew, James is coming back After that Match

NOW, I told you, I knew James is going to be No. 1 2007

Why you need believe me?

Cause, I told you everything to be ture

For example, After I saw KOBE Bryant played During L.A. Lakers 12-0 Open winning at 1998, they without Shaq, Lakers can beat 12 Team out, It Means, Kobe will be No. 1 NBA player, and L.A. Lakers will be the Champion future
I knew KOBE BRYANT, HE is going to be No. 1 Next 4 years

jcempire
11-04-2006, 09:00 PM
For NBA Future

1. Still Kobe Bryant

2. D wade is next Kobe Bryany

3. King LeBron is No. 3

4. T-mac come back

5. WHO KNOWS

Haas is guttless and John Barrett's got it right Haas got his ass kicked and Haas as usual as a wimp chickened out.I fully agree that Haas can be very childish on court. He did, however, play though a shoulder injury for months that ended up needing two surgeries and cost him 16 (exact number?) months of his best years. Since then he has refused to make the same mistake twice, and he will always err on the safe side and retire rather than give in to his instinct to play through the pain.

You whole post reads like some angry jingoist screed. Did you bother to watch Haas in the QF of the US Open? You know, where he fought through two and a half sets or so of fully cramping, hardly able to run half the points? Maybe you should, right after you buy a clue.
