Why wouldn't he have already withdrawn, if he wasn't going to play? If he can't make it past the 1st Rd, we will know he is in trouble :scared:

During the Davis Cup against Korea, German commentators said Tommy will try to play. And he plays Hartfield today. ;)

"Try to play" is right :rolleyes: He got defeated by Hartfield :eek: I don't know if it was lack of Match play, his shoulder, or what :confused: But someone like Hartfield should never have defeated him :sad: The Match did go to three sets, but that's the only good thing I can think to say right now :crying2:

You should beat Hartfield on hardcourt but it was his first match and without a good preparation.

Tommy needs more practise & match time.

Haas, who had shoulder surgery in November, struggled to serve over 110 MPH the entire evening. He said: "Overall (the shoulder) feels good. It's my first test. Unfortunately the shoulder went away a bit at the end of the second set. I didn't have the pop anymore. I didn't really have any pain, just no power." (atptennis.com)

No power suggests a bit of muscle atrophy from lack of practice and working out. So, does he work out some more and take some time off, or does he try to play San Jose? I suppose he'll do both, keep practicing in Florida and play next week if he has been reassured that it won't do any damage.

I hate to see this happening to him. Last summer I spoke to him very briefly at the Cincy Masters to ask him about his hip or leg because he had favored it in practice the previous day. He made a throwaway comment that he was 'getting old' and his body had a lot of wear and tear on it. He's such a talented and beautiful tennis player, I'm not ready to see him fade away like this yet. :sad:

I guess this answers my question:

Safin withdraws from San Jose, Hass to face Sampras
February 12, 2008

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Marat Safin withdrew from the upcoming SAP Open because of a stress fracture in his right leg and stomach flu.

Safin missed last weekend's Davis Cup tie for Russia against Serbia. He had been scheduled to play an exhibition next Monday against Pete Sampras to start the tournament. Tommy Haas will replace Safin in that match.

Fernando Gonzalez and Juan Martin Del Potro withdrew Monday from the San Jose tournament with injuries.

Straight from the Haas' Mouth :lol: He didn't make that surgery sound like much, but then Tommy always seems to try to make so little of any shoulder problems. May be he knows it scares his fans to death :scared:

I wish Tommy hadn't had to have all those shoulder surgeries myself :sad: But to be a right handed tennis player and have 3 surgeries on your right shoulder it is amazing he is still able to play at all :angel:
