Will the homecrowd help him win? Tommy plays Hamburg Masters

We heard a lot of bad news from Tommy after his first round defeat in Rome. But now he confirmed that he will play Hamburg, if his wrist is staying like it is now. He was already practising with Hogstedt and he said his wrist was ok. There was nothing written about his shoulder, but I think if he thinks of playing it can't bother him that much.
I think we will have to wait until he tells us on his homepage. But he confirmed his place to the tournament director and I think thats a good sign :yeah:

Go Tommy, best of luck from all of us :hug:

Yeah, I don't like that he said "I should" when being asked if he is going to play in Hamburg... I think we better have no expectations at all for next week :mad:

on his website he confirms that he will play and that he is looking forward to it. I don't have time to translate it now, but here's the german text :

Meinem Start steht nichts im Wege. Anders lautende Meldungen waren und sind falsch. Ich bin seit Dienstag in meiner Geburtsstadt.

Ich freue mich, wieder in Hamburg zu sein. Auch wenn ich nicht geplant hatte, derart früh im Norden Deutschlands zu erscheinen. Durch die Erstrunden-Niederlage in Rom gegen Gael Monfils werde ich mich jetzt in Hamburg auf das Turnier vorbereiten. Nach zwei Erstrundenpleiten in Folge hoffe ich, beim größten Turnier Deutschlands besser abzuschneiden. 1997 erreichte ich ja hier das Halbfinale.

Das Turnier am Hamburger Rothenbaum verfolge ich, seit ich denken kann. Als Kind kam ich mit der Familie regelmäßig zum Zuschauen. Als Spieler habe ich im Alter von 19 Jahren mein Debüt gegeben. 2005 schied ich leider gleich in der 1. Runde gegen Dominik Hrbaty aus. Das versuche ich, in diesem Jahr natürlich besser zu machen. Drückt mir die Daumen, dass die Auslosung es gut mir meint...

I think I have never posted here before, but I quite like Tommy!

I found a short report about him on the official Rothenbaum site and Tommy is already in Hamburg and he has been practicing on the Center Court today.

Here is the article:

Zusammen mit seinem Trainer, dem Schweden Thomas Hogstedt, bereitet sich Haas in dieser Woche gezielt auf das Masters Series Hamburg 2006 presented by E.ON Hanse vor. Gerüchte, dass er nicht in Hamburg antreten könne, dementierte der gebürtige Hamburger am Morgen. "Ich werde spielen können", sagte Haas, "meinem Handgelenk geht es schon sehr viel besser."
Haas war beim Masters Series Turnier in Rom gegen den 19-jährigen Franzosen Gael Monfils ausgeschieden und hatte über Probleme mit dem Handgelenk geklagt.

Der Davis Cup-Spieler will die Zeit jetzt für die Vorbereitung nutzen. "Ich werde hier in Hamburg gut essen gehen, ein wenig Zeit mit meiner Freundin verbringen und mich natürlich intensiv auf das Turnier vorbereiten", sagte Haas.


Sorry, I copied it a bit strange, but at least the whole article is there.

Don´t have time for translation either, sorry :(

:bigclap: Good luck for your home tournament Tommy! :bigclap:

I just hope that he doesn't want too much. It would be better for him if he just goes out there and has fun. He was always too doggedly in the past few years when he stepped on the court and it really didn't help his results.

05-11-2006, 10:43 PM
As I have said before Tommy's health or lack thereof worries me. Plus Tommy strikes me as a player who plays better away from home. And by home I mean his homeland--Germany because I think he plays great in the U.S. And I don't have any stats or anything to back me up on saying he doesn't play well in Germany it is just a feeling I have about him.

another horrible bad draw for Tommy, this time right at the beginning :banghead:
So the only hope is that Nadal wins the tournament tomorrow and then gives himself some rest. But I'm not sure about that and there is a good chance Nadal is going to play Hamburg this year, especially if he won't have to battle 5 hours like last year against Coria.

I saw the draw in another player's forum and I just couldn't believe it :fiery: And then I had the dumbest thought--it's like I have two boyfriends playing against each other :lol: I would think Nadal might pull out, but if he wins today he will have tied the record so he will need one more victory to break it. So he might just want to go on playing. Then again if he loses today that will stop the record chase so he then might just withdraw from Hamburg and take some time off. We will just have to wait and see :unsure:

Roger. Rafa had to pull the Match out in a 5th Set Tie Break. So maybe he won't go to Hamburg :unsure: If he does go, is it possible to cheer for both players :rolleyes:

Hi guys :wavey:
I was not online last week
did not matter, Tommy lost early again :sad:
bad luck also he lost in Munich early where I was at tournament, that was really disappointing, but I stayed until Friday and watched some other matches. I also meeted Neely and she was good guide for Munich and she was cool. Munich tournament had some more good matches, so it was not for nothing to stay (also my 2nd time only to Munich, city is nice!)

now in Hamburg, I did not plan to visit and will not visit after I saw draw
I don't see chance for Tommy curently :sad:
sooo sad
I hope he will win in Team Cup again and Roland Garros

And they might not be playing. The most I have heard so far is that both Roger and Rafa are going to wait and see how they feel tomorrow to decide on whether to play Hamburg or not :unsure: I bet that is going to make the people in Hamburg real happy if neither the #1 or #2 players in the world show up :eek:

I wish it was that he was just sick. But he kept pointing to his wrist when the trainer came on. If his wrist has flared up again, then it could be serious and require surgery. Poor Tommy, this is just devastating news. If he misses Wimbledon this year, I just won't be able to take it. I can't not get to see him again this year, after last year's disaster :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:

No I'm not in Denial this time. Tommy continues to do this.
He is sick, but he goes ahead and tries to play the Match anyway. And then after the 1st Set is lost he retires. He never retires before the 1st Set is over :ras: Tommy has been added to my list of players I will never vBet on again :smash: :banghead: :ras: noooo dont say that! :sad:
he just has the worst luck ever! i'm glad i didnt put money on him, but i think it's a good thing he never stops before a first set is over.. this shows he really is a fighter and doesnt give up easily!!!!! :worship:

How can one guy have so much bad luck. It's just not possible!!! Without all his injuries, and horrible luck, Tommy would have won slams by now. It's just so hard to be a fan of his. There's always so much disappointing. Every time it looks like things are going well, disaster strikes! This year he was playing so well, then there was the food poisoning, the wrist problem, the shoulder problem and now this. Last year, it was cramps at the Aussie Open, the freak incident at Wimbledon, foot problems, personal problems and lack of confidence. What are the chances?

The people who hissed at Tommy may have had a good point. The ATP Site lists the reason he retired as a pollen allergy :rolleyes: I take pills and shots for allergies myself all year long so don't think I'm taking that condition lightly. But that is the point there is plenty of treatment for that type of condition. And as you said he looked good. I'm afraid that Tommy is going to get the reputation that some players already have--pulling out of a Match when they are getting beat. This isn't the first time Tommy has retired in the 2nd Set after getting beat in the 1st Set.

If you are in such a situation, there is no good solution for that and you can't make it right for all people: If you don't play your match at all, people will say he was afraid to lose and couldn't deal with the pressure. When you retire during the match, people say you are pussy or that you give up too easily. And when you tank the rest of the match people say it's a pathetic performance.

@Mae: if Tommy is allergic to pollen and if he did not take his medication, then it's really his own fault because he could have done that. But in these times and some regions (I explained that more in detail in the GM thread about this match), even people who are usually not allergic to that kind of stuff can have difficulties... and if you are, you are even more in troubles than 'normal' and I'm not sure I would like to do pro sports at this level then. Also I don't think Baghdatis' 'breathing problems' were a coincidence either.

I'm also allergic to a lot of things, i even have an adrenaline shot to wear all the time, because if i eat nuts (or little parts you cant see) i can get into a shock and die. But, I didnt know this before i was like 16 y/o. The allergy started suddenly and this is also possible with pollen allergy.. You never know how serious it was, and maybe he didnt know he was allergic to some things... or it might just have started this 'pollen season'... so i dont think you can say the homecrowd is right.. you never know the real situation.. i think we have to wait for more news on tommy's official site... :rolleyes:

Exactly.. there's never a good way of playing when you're feeling bad.. and then the best way to do is, is the way which is best for yourself! because tommy's health is the #1 priority.

Well he had played an exhibition match and a doubles matches without any medical problems. So when did this pollen problem come up? And if he was all that sick why start the Match in the first place? In fact if he were that sick he couldn't start the Match no matter how badly he wanted to. And if he was really sick he would know that in the 1st Set so why prolong the retirement until the 2nd Set? What I'm saying is this behavior doesn't look or sound good to people so the people at the Tournament were upset with him. So it is up to Tommy what kind of reputation he wants to have? And right now I'm afraid that people aren't thinking very well of him.

Press Conference with TOMMY HAAS
Soderling - Haas 6:2, 2:1 retired

Q: Were the whistles very painful?

A: Of course that hurts a bit, because I always like to play in Hamburg and I try to get far. But on the other hand I can understand that the audience wanted to see more tennis, and better tennis. But I can't do more than try my best.

Q: Is that a classical hay fever, an allergy?

A: I'll do a test tomorrow. I always have hay fever at this time of the year, when I get over here. I always take pills. Every evening I have a dry mouth and a runny nose, the usual. But I never though much about it, because I have it every year. Since my food poisoning in Indian Wells I have the feeling that I'm not in my best shape, but I didn't worry about it too much. Now I've been in Hamburg for a few days and tried to practice to get far and survive the first round. But as soon as the match started and I realized that I didn't feel well, I got a sort of panic attack. All of a sudden nothing worked. I had the feeling that I couldn't see properly, couldn't focus properly, my eyes were watery and I couldn't breathe properly. That has never happened to me before on court. So I knew that something was wrong with me. I have to look into that now.

Q: What about next week?

A: I don't know yet. At the moment it doesn't look good. But I will know more tomorrow, after the blood test and another allergy test, and I will see how I feel. Because at the moment I don't feel well, unfortunately.

Q: Could you get the idea to leave the clay court season altogether?

A: We will see. I don't want now … French Open are starting in 12, 13 days. There is still time until then, but if I get back some results tomorrow which don't look too good, I have to decide. I will know more in a few days.

Q: Are there some sort of problems with taking certain medicine because of the doping law?

A: We will see soon.

Q: What have you taken so far against the allergy?

A: Something called Claretin.

And I know what those are like they are awful :eek: :eek: I think Tommy should have a complete medical check up on his physical and mental health. It doesn't sound like he is in very good shape health wise at this time. He should have been well over the food poisoning by now.

If I may be honest, I think Tommy's a little depressed maybe. After Germany lost the DC round 1, I feel like they blame it on him, that he should do better and so. About Becker, just forget it. I very much doubt it if he would have had the courage Tommy had to come back like he did in 2004, out of nowhere (technically), and win two titles, not to mention putting Germany back into the World Group. I think he's doing an amazing effort to get back up there, and maybe he gets frustrated when he loses a match. When he gets frustrated, he gets sick. I know he's a top player, I know he's better than Federer, and I know he can make it. ;)

That was very nicely said :) And I agree with just about everything you said except maybe the part of him being better than Federer. Now if Tommy hadn't had the problems with his shoulder he might well have been in the class with Federer. After all before the shoulder problems Tommy was ranked #2 in the world. Anyway I hope he can get his health situation back under control. He was doing so well early in the year. And what he said in that interview is true. He has had health problems ever since he had that food poisoning. So get well quick Tommy ;)

This Davis Cup loss, it was not really so much blamed on Tommy specifically. Kiwi was much more the scapegoat for the loss and got more bad press and the media reported he ruined the team atmosphere because he had breakfast with his parents one morning instead of the rest with the team.

I only heard that he did some blood tests and that the results weren't good, and because of that the doctors adviced him to not play in Düsseldorf. He should sleep a lot and go for walks :)
He didn't know if he could play FO at that time. I think he will decide soon. Doesn't look to good though...

Alexiana will you please post as soon as you learn anything at all about Tommy's health? I just knew when I saw those pictures of him that he was not well and as all of you know I never could believe that it was just a "pollen allergy". I may not be an "allergy expert", but you don't have to be an "expert" to know that Tommy just looked too bad for only an allergy attack. I not saying he didn't have an allergy attack, but there is more to the story than that. And I hope it isn't bad, but I don't like to hear that blood tests were done and the results weren't good :eek:
Blood tests can show up so much--some things can easily be taken care of while others can't be. I pray that Tommy
will be alright :angel:

It's one week ago now and we still don't know if Tommy is better and whether he will be able to play the French Open... and some stupid people thought that he faked it or retired just for fun last week or called him/thought he is a 'pussy' :rolleyes:

I did a Google News Search to try to find out more about Tommy's health. But all it was talking about was that he had pulled from the WTC due to "allergies". And that he had retired in Hamburg due to "allergies".There was no mention of blood tests only "allergies" were mentioned. I really wish I could believe that "allergies" were Tommy's only problem, but he looked so awful in those pictures in Hamburg I find that hard to believe.

Re: Will the homecrowd help him win? Tommy plays Hamburg Masters
Evidently not, if his own people are willing to boo him off the court for getting sick. :o :(

Oh well Alexiana I have had posters that have made fun of my thread titles at least in this case there is sympathy involved. You couldn't have possibly known when you did the thread title how things were going to end up. In fact before the Tournament started I had thought it was a good thread title--things just didn't work out well :sad:

I don't think tangerine_dream made fun of my title choice, she just mentioned that they behaved like a joke... And I didn't mean her/him by saying freak. That was for the audience in Hamburg :)

Don't worry Alexiana I understood both your post and the post that tangerine_dream made. I meant that your thread title wasn't being made fun of where in the past some of mine had been. And I know you meant freaks for the Hamburg audience and not for tangerine_dream--Oh did any of this make any sense at all :rolleyes: :confused: I'm just freaked out by Tommy being sick or hurt all the time now so please try to look over me :ignore: And unless I have totally lost my mind which is now quite possible--you can say "she" for tangerine_dream. And now I'm going back to :tape:
