Haas is a better player than Mayer with his ugly game will ever be.

mayer is an ambassador for the sport. There aren't enough players that display creativity.

Agreed. Two great beautiful to watch players. I really enjoyed this match even if it was a bit one sided.

Really good match to watch. I think I like this Haas more than the younger model - his physical limitations now mean he has to use the brain more, and it's great to watch.

Mayer needed to find those droppies earlier, Haas is really slow up to them.

I'm not disputing he's creative but his shot production is ugly. I hope Haas wins the tournament. He's the only player left in the draw I like and it would be another chapter in another remarkable comeback. He's had a few of them now.

Haas is Haas, younger or not, his game hasn't changed much.
You are right on using the brain tho. He is much calmer when he stupidly loses point, but same attitude remains when he wins point ;)

Have to disagree on Haas being slow, there were few shots even I doubted he could catch, which he converted in point later on.

Haas' game changed immensely since his younger days. Before his shoulder surgeries he was a power baseliner with a huge serve. After all the injuries he has become far more rounded player and incorporated his slice and net play a lot more. When he was young and physically peaking he had decent volleys/court craft but he never relied on it like he does now. Watch a tape of a 2001/2002 and compare it to 2007 onwards and it's a huge difference.

Be boss if he could add another home soil title in his career twilight. The fans love him.

Yep I remembered him 10 years back(and watched all big matches), agreed it has changed as I said, but hasn't that much.
Ofc after shoulder ops, one would need to reduce baseline shots and try to win quick points. But in essence of his game, he still had that offensive attitude.
Personally, I like he introduced more S&V style, many years ago. Made him as perfect example of complete all-around player..

14 more to go for 500. 15-8 on the year so far. Can he keep it up?

Very Good Haas today...but also a funny match from Mayer:lol:
Haas knows he is on his last chances to win titles...there is no top3 here, even there is no the best Juan Monaco and the clay seems fast.

Haas has actually become a very decent clay court play as he has aged. At least he is less likely to be blown off the court on this surface.

happy for his fans, especially Mae and leng jai, they have been waiting patiently for so long for Haas to step back into the courts and having such good results, the reward is being paid now :yeah:
