Miami R1: Haase def. [WC] Matosevic 6-3 6-4

Great unexpected win for the Dutchman. Matosevic got broken three times in the first set, once on a double fault to hand Haase a *2-1, another time after a long game where there was a significant delay in play at 3 all, and then was broken again to lose the set.

Second set, Haase saved 15-40 in the first game and broke immediately to take a 2-0 lead. He held for 3-0 but MM won three straight games to get it back on serve. Haase had two break points at 4-*3 to serve for the match, didn't take them but broke to love to win the match on return.

Robin really did a great job on return today, Matosevic only won 52% of service points. Will be interesting to know if that long break in the first set was for a medical timeout for Matosevic or not, but a good win for Robin regardless, he kept his head at the end of both sets and didn't choke away this victory.

Not surprised a WC lost to Haase, the streakiest player there ever was.

Haase can beat anyone. Obivously haven't seen the match but this win does suggest to me that Miami is playing faster than usual.

Most likely. Or, it could just be he's reverting back to his real level. But the long break at 3 all in the first set is ominous. With that said, Haase deserves credit here, he's a better player overall than Matosevic with a longer history of playing good tennis.

The break was at 3 all (40-15) Matosevic serving. Before that moment Matosevic had won 10/10 points on serve, and shortly after they've restarted, Matosevic lost the set, winning only 1 point of the remaining 6 after 1st serve. Also, on bet365 I saw they even wrote there's an injury break happening.

This is how you do it people. Seems Matosevic was injured with that timeout, but he kept on and finished the match.

True professional, this Matosevic.

He saved like 1-2 BPs but got broken the broken again. Too bad for MM. Guess the amount of matches he's played recently caught up with him.

Do you comment from the live score feed or you're in key biscaine? If you're on the stadium, what do you think of the court speed?

Well I'm not in Miami but what's funny is I talked to someone on twitter who is, a friend who is at the event, he lives in the south Florida area, and I asked him about the court speed and he said that people are saying the courts are faster. I don't know if they're as fast as some make them out to be (an assumption on my behalf), but they shouldn't be very slow this season which is a positive thing.

Matosevic lost an early service game in both sets so he couldn't have won all 10 points on serve.

No, he isn't there. Always speculates on how non televised matches go.

Sorry, I meant 10/10 points on 1st serve. He was something like 2/10 on 2nd serve though.

Bizarre, but Haase has the capability to hit winners from anywhere. So he got lucky that worked out fine.

Yeah. He's a bit of a loose cannon...but I guess you can say that about a lot of players.
