There's a new entry on Tommy's website. And this article sounds positive.

The pain is gone at the moment but the doctors adviced him to withdraw from Halle. Tommy practises already, works on fitness and staying power too and he's confident to play Wimbledon.


Here's the whole article in german:

"Auch wenn ich insgesamt "Entwarnung" vermelden kann, musste ich meine Teilnahme an den Gerry Weber Open leider absagen. Meine Ärzte haben mir empfohlen, der rechten Schulter noch ein wenig Pause zu geben. Es sieht gut aus mit einem Start im All England Club in Wimbledon, aber die nächste Woche will ich nochmal dazu nutzen, meine Schulter behutsam aufzubauen. Jetzt überhastet auf die Tour zurückzukehren, wäre einfach ein großer Fehler.

Nachdem ich, während der Vorbereitungszeit auf die French Open, plötzlich starke Schmerzen in meiner Schulter verspürte, habe ich mich erneut untersuchen lassen, um kein Risiko einzugehen. Es ist alles in Ordnung, die Schultermuskulatur benötigt jetzt noch ein wenig Pause. Ich habe mit leichtem Training auf dem Platz schon wieder begonnen. Ansonsten bin ich natürlich fleißig, arbeite viel an meiner Fitness und Ausdauer."

Confident to play Wimbledon? But didn't he already withdraw?

There's no official statement about a withdrawal from Wimbledon. Tommy's father told a german newspaper that he's merely unsure.

A little bit confusion. :shrug:

this sounds not too good though... he'll go to Munich to see his German doctors and physio Klaus Eder who also took care of Nicolas Kiefer

Münchenr Ärzte sollen Haas fit machen
München - Der Schmerz in der Schulter ist immer da. Obwohl es eigentlich ja gar kein Schmerz ist. Oder doch?

Tommy Haas musste seit dem 8. Mai wegen der Schulterverletzung pausieren
Vorschau Tommy Haas musste seit dem 8. Mai wegen der Schulterverletzung pausieren
"Ich weiß es selber nicht so genau", sagt Tommy Haas: "Es ist ein permanentes Schwächegefühl und irgendwie auch so ein kleiner Schmerz." Wenn er sich im Auto anschnallen will und den Gurt runterzieht zum Beispiel: "Eben diese Rückhandbewegung, dabei habe ich immer das Gefühl, überhaupt keine Kraft im rechten Arm zu haben."
Das ist für einen Tennisspieler eher hinderlich, und deshalb hat Tommy Haas auch "absolut keine Ahnung", wann er auf die Tour zurückkehrt.
Das kann noch zwei Wochen dauern, oder vier. Oder vielleicht auch länger. In Halle/Westfalen hat er abgesagt, in Wimbledon offiziell noch nicht.
Seit 8. Mai nicht mehr Tennis gespielt
Aber er weiß natürlich, dass ein Grand-Slam-Turnier für jemanden, der einen Monat lang keinen Ball mehr geschlagen hat, ein unmögliches Unterfangen ist.
Seit Tommy Haas am 8. Mai in Rom im Spiel gegen den Tschechen Radek Stepanek aufgab, hat er kein Tennis mehr gespielt. Erst jetzt, zum Wochenenende, will er "mal probeweise ein paar Bälle schlagen".
Zweimal war er in der Zeit beim Arzt seines Vertrauens in New York, und der konnte grundsätzlich erstmal Entwarnung geben. "Ich habe zweimal eine Kernspin-Tomografie machen lassen", sagt Haas: "In der Schulter ist definitiv nichts gerissen."
Haas fliegt nach München

Aber weil in den vergangenen fünf Wochen auch definitiv nichts besser geworden ist, sollen nun die Spezialisten in der Heimat ran. Am kommenden Mittwoch fliegt Haas nach München, dort sollen sich Physiotherapeut Klaus Eder sowie die beiden Ärzte Dr. Ludwig Rembeck und Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt der Sache annehmen.
"Vielleicht liegt die Ursache ja auch ganz woanders", sagt er: "Vielleicht ist es eine lädierte Rippe oder irgendein Problem mit der Halswirbelsäule."
Bis jetzt nimmt Haas die Zwangspause noch einigermaßen locker hin, auch wenn ihn vor allem der Verzicht auf Wimbledon schmerzt. Dort hat er in bisher acht Versuchen noch nie das Achtelfinale erreicht, weshalb er findet, "dass ich da noch eine Rechnung offen habe".
US Open und Davis Cup die großen Ziele
Dass er die Sandplatz-Saison fast komplett sausen lassen musste, findet der 29-Jährige dagegen nicht weiter tragisch: "Es ist ja bekannt, dass ich da sowieso nicht so ein großer Fan von bin."
Seine beiden großen Ziele in diesem Jahr sind ohnehin schon lange klar definiert: Bei den US Open will Tommy Haas, der auf den US-Hartplätzen groß geworden ist, seinem Traum von einem Grand-Slam-Sieg so nah wie möglich kommen und anschließend mit der deutschen Davis-Cup-Mannschaft durch einen Sieg in Russland das Finale erreichen.
Und dem ordnet Deutschlands Nummer eins zurzeit eben alles unter. Konditionell hat er sich fit gehalten, mental findet er seine aktuelle Situation manchmal "ein bisschen schwierig".
"Ich darf nichts überstürzen"
Aber egal, ab nach Deutschland, wo die Familie ihn unterstützen kann und wo die geballte medizinische Kompetenz ihn so schnell wie möglich wieder auf den Platz kriegen soll.
"Ich hoffe, dass ich bald mit dem Tennistraining anfangen kann", sagt er: "Wenn es sich wenigstens wieder ein bisschen besser anfühlt, kann ich mit dem vorsichtigen Aufbau anfangen. Ich darf nichts überstürzen, immerhin ist die Schulter schon zweimal operiert worden."

Could someone please give a brief translation of the sport1 article? I'm sorry I can't read German :sad: But right now I think things are confused mainly due to the fact that no one is answering the question--exactly what is wrong with Tommy's shoulder? Surely the doctors and Tommy must know by now :unsure:

use Babelfish http://babelfish.altavista.com/ for translation. It is not good but still better than German I think.

The article said that Tommy's shoulder is still not better. He even feels pain when he reaches for the safetybelt in his car. He went to New York to see his doctor but the shoulder seems to be ok. On wednesday he will go to Munich so see other doctors and the physio. They think it could be something wrong with his rip or the spine.
He didn`t play any tennis since 8th May but he will start slow practice this weekend and see how the shoulder reacts. He doesn`t want to hurry things because he already had 2 surgeries on this shoulder. He wants to give it some more time to heal.

Munich doctors to condition Haas

Munich - The pain in the shoulder is still there. Altough it is actually no pain, is it?

Since May 8, Tommy Haas had to pause due to a shoulder injury.
"I´m not quite sure, too", says Tommy Haas. "It is a permanent feeling of weakness and somehow a little pain."
If he wants to strap up in his car and pulls down the seat belt for example: "It is the backhand movement. I always feel like I have no power in my right arm."
This is rather obstructive for a tennis player, and that is why Tommy "doesn´t know at all" when he will return to the tour.
It can take 2 weeks, or four. Or maybe longer.
He skipped Halle/Westfalen, Wimbledon officially not yet.
He knows for sure that playing a Grand Slam is impossible for someone who didn´t hit any balls for a month.
Since he retired against Stephanek, he hasn´t played any tennis. But this week end, he wants to hit some balls by way of trial.
He went two times to his confidential doctor in New York who gave a basically all-clear.
„I had two nuclear spin tomographies“, says Haas. „There is definitely nothing torn in my shoulder.“"

Haas heads for Munich
But because there has definitely nothing got better in the pas five weeks, it is he turn of the specialists of his home. The next Wednesday he flies to Munich, where physiotherapist Klaus Eder and the doctors Dr. Ludwig Rembeck und Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt are going to look after it.
„Maybe we attribute an effect to a wrong cause“, he says. “Maybe there is a damaged costa or a problem with his cervical spine“
Up to now, Haas copes quite good with his enforced time-out, even if especially the waiver of Wimbledon hurts. He has never reached the last sixteen round there, that´s why he thinks that he “has a score to settle with it“.

US Open and Davis Cup are the big goals
Haas doesn´t think that it is tragical that he had to skip the clay season almost completely: “It is well known that I´m not such a big fan of it”.
His two big goals of this year are well defined for a long time anyway:
Haas, wo has grown up on US-Hardcourts, wants to get as close as possible to his dream of triumphing at the US Open and wants afterwards to reach the final beating Russia
with the german Davis Cup Team.
Germany´s No. 1 subordinates everything at the moment to make his dreams come true. He stayed fit conditionally. His mentally situation is sometimes „a bit difficult“

„I may not rush things“
But no matter what, he heads for home where his family supports him and where the medical competence conditions him.
“I hope to begin practicing soon”, he says. “If it feels a bit better again, I can start building up carefully. I may not rush things, after all the shoulder has been operated two times yet.”

Sorry for my lacking translation talent. I hope you don´t mind the tense and vocabulary mistakes :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Thank you so much tennislady :worship: And it sounds like Tommy and his doctors really don't actually know exactly what is wrong with him :eek: In some ways I'm encouraged that the medical tests he has had so far were good, but then he still has a problem with his shoulder :confused: May be it is something in his cervical spine a pinched nerve or something that is the real cause of the shoulder not feeling right :unsure: Whatever it is, I just want him to get well soon :angel:

And the most important things of what he says on his website:

I'm skipping Halle, because my doctors adviced me to give my shoulder a little rest. It's looking good for the start of Wimbledon. I have to be careful with my shoulder the next week, i have to build up the training carefully (sorry my english have been better :rolleyes: )

When I was preparing for Roland Garros, suddenly strong pains came up in my shoulder. I went to the doctor to check my shoulder, just to take no risks. Everything is ok, the muscles in my shoulder just need a little rest now. I started training again. I'm training a lot now on the fitness and condition.

Don't worry about your English Tommy Girl I want to know everything about Tommy's health that I can. And I can't understand any German :sad: I'm going to the Land of Denial and say that the doctors will find the problem, treat Tommy, and that he will soon be back on Tour :D Only positive thoughts from now on :angel:

Sorry the answer is no one knows if he will play or not :shrug: I know Tommy wants very much to play in
Wimbledon because all he has ever wanted there is to reach at least the Rd of 16. But it has been some time since he has been in a Tournament and hasn't even been able to do much in the way of practice. And he would have no grass court warm up tournament to Wimbledon.
And we still don't know what is wrong with him :sad: If I had to guess, I would say he will miss Wimbledon. He has never done that well there anyway and with the situation as it is now I don't think he would be able to do much, if any winning there :crying2: But you never know with Tommy he might give it a try. The doctors need to find out what his problem is now. And when that is known we will all have a better idea of what Tommy will be doing, I think :unsure:

Yes Tommy did play there last year. So far he is not officially out of Wimbledon, but it wouldn't surprise me to hear at any time he has pulled out :sad: Really I don't see the point in him playing other than I know he really wants to play. He doesn't play well there. He hasn't been playing. Why not just wait until hard court season :shrug: That is IMO where Tommy plays his best tennis.

But Tommy had been playing so well as of late. Actually winning Tournaments after all the shoulder problems. Oh he missed a Tournament now and then because he said his shoulder felt "tight" and he didn't want to take any chances. And I certainly don't blame him for that. But this is the most injury time that he has taken all at once for a long time :sad:

As I said I don't think he should. Not only hasn't he had a good preparation he hasn't had a preparation at all at least Tournament wise. And we never did hear if the last time he tried to practice, if he was even successfull at that :sad: :bigcry: At least may be when he gives his Wimbledon decision we may learn some more about his health :unsure:

Wimbledon ohne Tommy Haas?
19.06.2007

Jede Stunde zählt. In sechs Tagen startet das bedeutendste Tennis-Turnier der Welt und die Teilnahme von Deutschland Aushängeschild Tommy Haas ist höchst fraglich.

Wimbledon ohne Tommy Haas?
Die Schulter macht große Sorgen
(Foto: imago)


Zurzeit befindet sich der 29-Jährige in der täglichen Behandlung von Nationalmannschaft-Physiotherapeut Klaus Eder. Durch die gezielte Behandlung soll die entzündete rechte Schulter fit gemacht werden, die den gebürtigen Hamburger schon einmal zu einer 14-monatigen Pause gezwungen hatte.

Noch ist eine Absage beim veranstaltenden All England Tennis Lawn Club in London allerdings auch nicht eingegangen. "Ich werde nichts überstürzen. Nur wenn ich vollkommen gesund bin, werde ich wieder spielen", hatte Haas schon bei seiner Absage der French Open betont.

Tommy is still in Donaustauf getting treatment from the physio of the German Davis Cup and national soccer team. He said he will only go to Wimbledon if he is 100 % fit. But since he withdrew from Boodles I don`t think he will try to play Wimbledon without any practice on grass.

Wimbledon - Haas: "Chancen stehen 50:50"

Eurosport - Mi 20.Jun. 10:47:00 2007

Wimbledon - Tommy Haas hat seine Teilnahme am Turnier in Wimbledon noch nicht abgeschrieben - im Gegensatz zu Alexander Waske. "Die Chance, dass ich in Wimbledon spielen kann, steht 50:50", erklärte Haas. Waskes Startverzicht hingegen ist endgültig: "Die Absage tut mir richtig weh", sagte der Doppelspezialist.

Haas, der derzeit bei Klaus Eder in Donaustauf an seinem Comeback arbeitet, wird wohl am Freitag nach London fliegen, um letzte Tests zu absolvieren und danach über eine Teilnahme am dritten Grand-Slam-Turnier des Jahres entscheiden. "Ich fühle mich besser und inzwischen kann ich schmerzfrei trainieren. Aber ganz frei fühlt sich die Schulter noch nicht an. Vor allem bin ich nicht sicher, ob sie fünf Sätze durchhalten würde", sagte die Nummer zehn der Weltrangliste.

Für Waske hingegen gibt es keine Hoffnungen mehr auf eine Teilnahme beim Turnier im All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. Eine Entzündung am Ellenbogen hindert den 32-Jährigen sowohl an der Teilnahme an der Einzel-Qualifikation als auch am Doppelwettbewerb. "Es fällt mir sehr schwer, aufzuschlagen. Ich bin zwar jetzt schmerzfrei, aber ich merke immer noch etwas. Es wird wohl noch eine Woche dauern, bis ich wieder voll trainieren kann", berichtete der Davis-Cup-Spieler. Besonders bitter ist für Waske der Zwangsverzicht auf die Doppelkonkurrenz, in der er sich gemeinsam mit Andrei Pavel noch Hoffnungen auf die Masters-Qualifiaktion macht.

the pain is gone but the shoulder still feels strange. He is not sure if he can play 5 sets already but he will go to London on Friday for some final tests. Chances to play Wimbledon are 50:50

I'd love to see both him and Kiefer play Wimbledon and win a couple of rounds. But if he's not ready to play more than 3 sets, than he better not take any risks. It's not like he's losing tons of points anyways.

Even if he would lose tons of points, health is more important than your rank in the ATP list :angel:

But, it's a good sign he's going to London to train a bit..

GOOD LUCK Tommy! :yeah:

His health is much more important than points, rankings, and even Wimbledon. Please don't try to play Tommy I'm scared :scared:

I don't know. I would love to see him in London, because a GS without Tommy is boring. :p

But my mind says...skip Wimby, take some rest and get ready for Los Angeles in July. ;)

Maybe I am being selfish, but I want to see Tommy play. :devil: I have been missing him. :sobbing:

But when he his playing his matches, he is to retire if he feels he must. ;)

Tommy has never played well at Wimbledon. He has had no grass warm-up Tournament and probably very little practice even. How far do you think he would get at Wimbledon anyway? It would be much better not to risk any problem with the shoulder. I know GS are boring without Tommy. I think all Tournaments are boring without Tommy. But if that shoulder goes out you won't be seeing Tommy on the Tour at all :bigcry:

Oh Mae, get over yourself, no need to be so dramatic all the time! Tommy isn't stupid, do you think he'd risk his whole career if he wasn't ready to play? He knows better than you or anyone for that matter. I for one think he should play if he feels ok! Yes he hasn't done particularly well at Wimbledon before, but anything can happen. This year, with no expectataions or pressure, an inspired Tommy could do big things! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he gives it a try. Tommy's the best and I hope he turns this year around and gets back to the form and results from the first part of 2007.

GO TOMMY - YOU'RE A LEGEND!!!!!

Well pardon me, but the 1st time Tommy had shoulder surgery he tried to come back to the Tour too soon and ended up having to have his shoulder worked on yet again. Which proves to me that Tommy has indeed let his desire to play overide his judgment when it comes to his health. He was very lucky to make it back on the Tour after all of that. And even more amazing to come back and win on the Tour! If I were him, I wouldn't push my luck any at all now.

Tommy has the game to do very well at Wimbledon. Brilliant volleyer and also a very good slice backhand. You need to remember he is getting old now and he doesn't have that many more chances to play wimbledon.

his doctors gave their ok today and he is clever enough to know how much he is going to risk. I don't think he will play if he is not 100 % fit. Don't you think he learned from the first shoulder injury? So if the doctors gave their ok and he feels ok why shouldn`t he play??? OK.. he didn`t have any matches on grass this year but who cares? He has been playing on the tour for some years now and he has enough experience to start in Wimbledon without any matches on grass.

That is true. We just need to make sure that there aren't any balls near his feet. :lol: ;)

Eurosport just published this

«Das größte Ziel ist, das Achtelfinale zu erreichen. Das habe ich nämlich noch nie geschafft», erklärte der an Nummer 13 gesetzte Haas der «Bild am Sonntag». Zunächst freilich muss die erste Hürde genommen werden, was im ersten Duell mit dem auf Platz 169 der Weltrangliste notierten Qualifikanten Zack Fleishman aus den USA nicht unmöglich sein dürfte. «Ich versuche schmerzfrei durchzuspielen. Mein zweites Ziel ist, den Platz als Gewinner zu verlassen», sagte der 29-Jährige, der vor sieben Wochen sein letztes Match gespielt hat und dann wegen Schmerzen in der schon zwei Mal operierten rechten Schulter pausieren musste.

«Der Schmerz ist nicht mehr da», erklärte Haas in Wimbledon und ein Lächeln spiegelte seine Zufriedenheit wider. Denn lange Zeit war seine Gemütslage ganz anders gewesen. «Der Schmerz ging nicht weg», erzählte er. «Da bin ich ein bisschen durchgedreht. Ich hatte wirklich Angst, dass diese Verletzung mein Karriereende bedeuten könnte.» Die schlimmen Tage sind vorbei, wenn auch nicht vergessen.

Nun denkt Haas sogar ans Achtelfinale. Dort allerdings hieße der Gegner vermutlich Roger Federer.


Tommy feels no pain anymore. He feared the end of his career but is now looking forward to play in Wimbledon and set the 1/8 as goal for this year.
