Horrifying match up for gramps. Then again, it's not worse than Simon.

Ajde.

Great final, hopefully will be a great match :D

The slow surface should favor Pico but since Haas played so well this tournament and has the crowd behind him I'd say Haasi in 3 tough sets!

Edited to add: Those poll options :rolls:

Tennis wins either way. Hoping for Haas but Pico's all night session with Rafa could pay dividends for him...

I'll never forget that US Open match last year where Haas was wearing Nike t-shirt, then a Limited t-shirt then an Adidas t-shirt and to finish off, he saved the best for last, a Hanes Wallmart cotton t-shirt with a pocket on the front of it.

Would love to see Haas, the man from the weak era storm this one.

I have no idea how Haas made it this far, through Simon especially. Anything could happen.

I think back to how Monaco blew it the one time he made a 500 final - to Granollers last year. Knowing he'd be in the Top 10 with a win just adds to the problems.

Haas in 2.

Nothing against Monaco, but it´s just so good to see Haas still being around, healthy, and playing good tennis, you just have to hope the guy can pull this one off. Go Tommy!!

Haasi in two hopefully. Be superb if he adds this to Halle, a great way for the German fans to thank him for many great memories :D

not a good sign when Monaco has won 3 in a row on HC v Tommy

Yeah I remember all 4 of those. All were very close but Monaco somehow managed to win.
I'm expecting much greater fight from Tommy(even this final is on clay), because in every other encounter Tommy wasn't patient enough to beat player like Monaco.

Match vs Simon was perfect example of that, building up points for winners etc etc.
I'm sure Tommy can pull this one off, time for ze revenge! :devil:

'ello tennis n00b, so where are top guns while 500 tour is ongoing? Is Novak on his luxury yacht showing off alongside coasts of Montenegro? :p

edit: and yet he's asking for shorter year...

Clay 19 6 .724 170 95 .642 5

Pretty decent stats for Pico, I'm a Haas supporter and did win $$ after the upset of Cilic, but against Monaco I'm not sure if the crowd support will be enough to take him down? Even if Almagro was in this final, I'd be thinking all the same.

Good luck!

It will be interesting to see if Tommy can actually take his 9th consecutive win in finals.

Mugnaco is nothing but a stepping stone for the great Haas. He will demolish the guy.

Monaco's had his number lately, so this won't be easy for Tommy.

That said, I hope Tommy can pull this out for the home crowd.

More like the mindset of a mentally insane athlete. Sometimes you have to be insane to be successful, though. Just look at Federer. The guy is not mentally sound.

Yeah cause he has been playing small tournaments like the others. LOL. It's funny that when they play small tournaments it's vulturing but when the likes of Kohli, del Potro, and Tipsarevic it's not.

His such a no talent, no. That's why his been a consistent top 30 player and has reached masters semifinals twice. LOL. Does Haas have more talent than Monaco, yes, but that doesn't mean he has no talent.
