'Croatia’s Ivo Karlovic has been forced to withdraw from the Olympic Tennis Event, having been unable to recover from a foot injury sustained since July.
That means that Germany’s Philipp Petzschner, already competing in the doubles with Christopher Kas, takes Karlovic’s place in the men’s singles draw and will face Slovak Lukas Lacko in the opening round.'
I'm happy Haas is not going to play this. I see him winning more points in Washington.
Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.
Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.
First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
In all honesty, it's karlovic's fault. If he withdrew around the same time nadal and monfils, I think haas would've made the trip to London.
Edit: was haas even on the alternate list?
no because the German committee didn't ask him to enter
His only chance to come would have been that the German committee asked him top come : he would probably have received an invitation from the ITF (not sure because the ITF gives priority to players who have been highly concerned with the Davis cup)
