Haase was serving for the match in 2nd set when leading 6-0 5-4 and managed to find a way to lose:worship:

Haase had matchpoint in second set and served for the match in third. Well done choker! :worship:

Kei :bolt: I love you kid, but you will bring me heart attack. But anyway - what a comeback! :worship:

Haase was leading 6-0 *4-1. Then he blew 4 MP's on his serve when up 5-4 in the second set. He led 5-3 in the final set and found a way to squander that.

A meltdown of epic proportions for Robin Haase. At one point the odds of Nishikori winning were 170-1 at betfair.

I didn't watch the match, but it's just typical Haase meltdown. thought he will become tougher mentally after getting first title..guess not :o

What a fighter Kei!! :yippee:

Don't know what was happening on court but looks like it was a crazy match. Haase was a set and double breaks up before Kei came back and leveled to 5-5 and took the second set.

Please don't give us any more heartattacks, Kei!

Haase 6/0 5/3, served for match, missed mp, broken, then broken to love at *5-6 :-) Then does it again 3rd set serving for match, missed a pile more mps, and lost tiebreak.

Muggety mug mug.

How Kei pulled that out I have no idea. Real shame it wasn't on a tv court, would have loved to see how all that hot steaming mess unfolded.

This guy has NOT one OUNCE of mental toughness in his body. Amazing talent, but such a bad crunch-time player.

This loss must sting bad for Haase...I feel bad for him.

But glad that Kei somehow got thru to setup a match with Tsonga!

Haase still won 6 more points despite the meltdown.

I wonder if Kei did anything at 6-0 4-1 that made Haase stutter and let him back in the match.

Haase proved another time he's one of the leading chockers on tour. So pathetic.

Nishikori finally completes project 45 according to the live-tennis website, took him forever, but he made it at last. Congrats!!

Haase threw in three double faults that * 4-1 to get broken, and also two more in the final set breaker.

It appears this was more of an epic choke from Haase opposed to Kei mounting an epic comeback and playing very well to get back in the match.

Expected from someone who managed to out-choke Murray at a slam.

Not just Murray... remember 1st round at Wimbledon this year? ;)

Happy for Kei to make a mark in the Asian swing.

Haase is gunning for the title of biggest choker on tour. He certainly has done now the biggest GS choke (it's between him and Troicki, anyway) and now the biggest Masters choke.

Ruud? :confused:

van Nistelrooy, Haase's evil twin, who undoubtedly took over at 6-0 4-1...

Ah. :spit:

Well regarding the fact that Nishikori took Tsonga to the slaughter as well today, it might make this loss look just a little bit easier to take for Haase.

Quality bump. Thanks for reminding us. Not often would one starts arguably the best week of their career by eating a bagel.
