I watched the match live Haas should've have won he was 40-0 to go 5-3 up. Canas held his nerve better and played some unbelievable shots one of them that sticks out in my mind is an inside out running forehand he played to get it to deuce on Haas's 40-0 game from there Haas was rattled. Congrats Canas
If Roddick wins....(C'mon Novak!!) Canas better win :fiery:!!
Wow, what a tight match! Congrats to Guillermo. He's been so impressive this year on all the surfaces. I feel bad for Haas, it looked like he was in full control in the 3rd. Losing his serve at 4:3 and 40:0 turned out very costly for him. But overall the match was very tight in the tiebreak as well, could have gone in either's way.
here he is in 2000. he is the hunk on the left. the pix doesn't do him justice. i'll hunt down another. guaranteed to raise your BP!

After posting a tough second round win over Chilean Nicolas Massu, Hernan Gumy (left) cheered on fellow Argentinean Martin Rodriguez at the 2000 Kroger-St. Jude tournament in Memphis. Pablo Albano (right), a doubles semifinalist in Memphis, and another friend (middle) joined Gumy in the stands.
Early one morning at the U.S. Open, Argentina's Hernan Gumy practiced his serve. In this fabulous photo, everything is in motion. His ponytail whips to the side, his necklace bounces toward heaven, and his right arm completes his follow-through. It's his neck, though, that makes this photo stand out. His sternocleidomastoid (the front one) and the scalene muscles are flexed and easily differentiated. A viewer can visually palpate his neck muscles. (rowz)
And Becca, being in the final will create a tremendous amount of pressure for Canas! How will he handle it? Only time will tell! But if has the face Roddick, he will feel even more pressure! That's for sure!
If Roddick loses tonight, I'll I'll I'll do something!
What a great week for Canas! :bounce: He has proven he isn't a fluke. But is he ready for the big time?
Canas and Gumy practicing must be something! I guess they only need one ball...
I remember Hernan 'the wall' gumy playing Alex Corretja in Roland Garros some year (1998 I guess). The match was incredible. I had the feeling it would never end. Every point was like a marathon and Corretja would have to hit like a dozen overheads to win it.
