Come on Tommy!
German star Tommy Haas on late Wednesday evening pleased 9,000 fans by rallying past Austrian Juergen Melzer 6-2, 3-6, 6-4.
One break down (4-3) in the final set, the seventh seed regrouped to win the last three games in front of an euphoric crowd. "I was proud to get back into the match," Haas smiled. "My errors, especially my double-faults, helped him back into the match and turning this one around was very tough." Haas stormed to a 4-0 lead and took the first set, 6-2. Melzer then gained a break in the fourth game of the second set to level the scoreline. "I felt I was the better player throughout but he played good tennis, too," said Haas, who next clashes with either Juan Carlos Ferrero or Alexander Waske. "I would love to play Alex because he is a good friend of mine. I was very happy to see him beating Nadal and facing him would be great fun."
