"Captain Shanghai" Haas takes out "Captain Spectacles" Tipsarevic 6-3 6-7(5) 6-3

Pretty faulty match from Haas with some clown tennis mixed in with his usual sexy backhands and netplay. Not too sure about the dropshots he kept hitting.

Tipsy is pretty annoying with his eye gear and the annoying grunt.

Tipsarevic played very good in the second set and had a break in the third. But as many times before he started some ridiculous shots and lost it.

A good exhibition of Racquet abuse in this match and good to see Tipsy finally getting it right at 3-4.

Haas :yeah: He should finally play in Masters Cup.
Haas was lucky at 4:3 (15-30) in the third set when he threw his racquet and didn't touch the ball which was landed "out".

Good escape. Didn't believe he had it in him, and will have to check my recording to see how he managed to rebreak.

Point of the match at 4:3 Haas, 15:30*: Haas is totally out of position and his opponent just needs to put he ball away, but the ball goes out. Haas even threw his rasquet in the direction of the ball (not in Tipsarevic's direction), since he was so sure that he had lost the point. :lol: Haas had thrown the racquet after Tipsarevic hit the ball, so no distraction.

Tipsarevic got a point penalty. What was the first warning?

Haas overcame the nerves and is close to Shanghai with this win. Tipsy really blew it in the end, both guys cracked a few racquets in this match.

Maybe but the one at 3-4 was totally mangled and a worthy effort.

Yes - the second was was like a sculpture.

But that's what cost him the point penalty, in response to four:love

Tommy is no stranger to coming into Paris with chances at the TMC and lets see if he can make it this time. Good to see him get this win at least.

Considering he wasn't motivated at all this win is good. We'll see if he can finally qualify, though his current shape might not be that great and he'd be one of the weaker guys in Shanghai.
