Thomas Mario "Tommy" Haas (born 3 April 1978) is a German professional tennis player. He has competed on the ATP Tour since 1996. After breaking into the world top 100 in 1997, and reaching a career-high singles ranking of World No. 2 in May 2002, Haas's career was interrupted by injuries: he has twice dropped out of the world rankings due to being unable to play for twelve months.[1] His first period of injury saw him miss the whole of the 2003 season, and he did not return to the world's top 10 until 2007. He also missed over a year's tennis between February 2010 and June 2011, but has since returned to play on the tour. He returned to World No. 11 in 2013 after reaching the quarterfinals at the French Open for the first time in his career.

Although Haas has never won a Grand Slam tournament, he has reached the semifinals of the Australian Open three times, and Wimbledon once. He is one of few players to have reached the quarterfinal stage of each of the Grand Slams. He has won 14 career titles in singles and doubles, including one Masters tournament, and has a silver medal from the 2000 Summer Olympics.

Early life[edit]

Born in Hamburg, Germany to Brigitte and Peter Haas,[2] Tommy started playing his own version of tennis when he was four years old,[3] using a wooden plank to hit balls against the wall or into his father's hands. When his father noticed his talents, he started bringing Haas to work, as he was a tennis coach.

At five, Haas won his first youth tournament, in Hamburg. At eight, he won his second, in Munich. Between 11 and 13, Haas twice won the Austrian Championship, the German Championship, and the European Championship.Haas is also a good friend of Swiss great Roger Federer.

Haas's talents were noted by tennis guru Nick Bollettieri. Nick was so impressed by the young German's talent that he offered Haas the chance to stay and train at his Bollettieri Academy in Bradenton, Florida for free, and Haas began attending at age 11.[2] At 13, speaking little English, Haas moved full-time to Florida to train at the academy.[2]

Tennis career[edit]

Juniors[edit]

As a junior Haas reached as high as No. 11 in the junior world singles rankings in 1995 (and No. 5 in doubles).

1996–2000[edit]

In 1996, Haas became a professional tennis player. He played his first grand slam at the US Open in 1996, losing to Henry Stradling, who was killed in a car crash a few weeks after and wasn't old enough to show his fame. He gained attention as a future star when he won his first ATP title in 1999, made it to the semifinals of the Australian Open, and was a finalist in the Grand Slam Cup. The following year, he won a silver medal in the Sydney Olympics.

2001–2004: Rise to Prominence[edit]

In 2001, he began to make even greater strides in his tennis career by winning four ATP titles, including his first Masters shield, finishing 2001 as world no. 8 and therefore only missing out on playing in the season-ending Masters Cup because of Goran Ivanišević's Wimbledon triumph, which meant Ivanišević took the eighth and final spot. He came close to possibly winning the 2002 Australian Open when he battled through tough 5 setters vs Todd Martin, Roger Federer, and a tough 4 setter vs Marceloa Rios to reach the semis. He led Marat Safin 2 sets to 1 in the semis, and would have been favored vs Tomas Johansson in the final, but fatigue from the previous long matches and a stiff shoulder that worsened during a rain delay proved too much to overcome, and a more focused Safin crushed Haas 6-0, 6-2 in the final 2 sets. Haas was quickly rising to the top of the tennis ranks when his career was suddenly halted at no. 2 in the world by a tragic and severe accident that nearly claimed the lives of Haas's parents, leaving his father in a coma. Haas spent much of the 2002 year taking care of his family, instead of playing tennis. At the end of the lay-off from tennis because of his parent's accident, he seriously injured his shoulder, requiring a major operation. He was plagued by further injuries and related complications afterwards and did not return to professional tennis fully until 2004. Before his parents' accident and his injuries, he had an impressive record against notable former, and future no. 1 ranked players: 3–0 against Andy Roddick, 5–5 against Pete Sampras, 2–1 against Roger Federer, 2–1 against Marat Safin, and 2–0 against Jim Courier. Haas won two more ATP titles in his return year of 2004, while trying to gain back his form.

2006[edit]

In 2006, Haas won three ATP Tournaments and put on an impressive performance at the 2006 US Open, making it to the quarterfinals, where he was knocked out by Nikolay Davydenko, despite having been up two sets. Haas began having severe cramps in his legs in the third set, and from then on, his limited mobility on the court perhaps cost him the remaining three sets and a match in the semifinals. During the match he was visibly disturbed, repeatedly hitting his legs with his racquet, frustrated at the cramps.

At the end of the year, he had to win the Paris Masters to qualify for the Masters Cup, the ATP year-end finale. He lost after a semifinal run to Dominik Hrbatý with health problems and did not play again for the rest of the year.

2007[edit]

In 2007, Haas, with his trademark long hair now cut short, had battled his way to his third Australian Open semifinal, which included intense matches against David Nalbandian and a five-set quarterfinal rematch against Nikolay Davydenko. He lost his semifinal match against first-time Grand Slam finalist Fernando González from Chile in straight sets. Despite this loss, Haas returned to the top 10 of the world rankings for the first time since 2002.

On 25 February, at the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships in Memphis, Haas stopped Andy Roddick's quest for the final, winning in two sets. This was the first time Haas had won a title without facing a single break point in any of his matches, as well as the first time he had won titles in consecutive seasons. Haas also became only the second player to win three titles at Memphis, the other being Jimmy Connors, who won in 1979, 1983, and 1984.

Haas reached the quarterfinals of the Pacific Life Open, an ATP Masters Series tournament held in Indian Wells, California, where he lost to Scotland's Andy Murray in a third-set tiebreaker. In the 2007 ATP Champion's Race, Haas, the thirteenth seed (10th-ranked), not known for being much of a grass courter, advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time, defeating Zack Fleishman, Tomáš Zíb, and no. 21 seed Dmitry Tursunov. Unfortunately, this run came to an end after he suffered a torn abdominal muscle and had to withdraw a day before playing Roger Federer.

At the 2007 US Open, Haas equaled his best result in New York by reaching the quarterfinals with thrilling five-set wins over Sébastien Grosjean and James Blake. He beat Blake in a fifth set tiebreak, saving match points. His run ended, however, with a three-set loss to Nikolay Davydenko.

2008[edit]

In the first half of 2008, Haas was derailed by injuries, causing him to miss both the Australian Open and the French Open. This dropped him significantly in the rankings, as he was unable to back up his semifinal performance at the Australian Open the year before. He made it to the quarterfinals of the Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells, defeating Andy Murray in three sets. He was then forced to withdraw from his quarterfinal match against Roger Federer due to injury.

He reached the third round at Wimbledon with a four-set win over Guillermo Cañas and a straight-set win over 23rd seed Tommy Robredo. He then fell to Andy Murray in four sets.

In the hard-court season, he got to the semifinals of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington, D.C., but was steamrolled by the red-hot Juan Martín del Potro. At the Rogers Cup in Toronto, he beat former world no. 1 Carlos Moyà, and then lost to Nikolay Davydenko in the second round. At the US Open, he beat twelfth seed Richard Gasquet in five tough sets. He then fell to Gilles Müller of Luxembourg in five sets, despite cruising in the first two sets.

2009: Resurgence[edit]

At the beginning of the new season, Haas pulled out of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open due to elbow problems. However, he appeared in the Kooyong Exhibition game, where he beat Mardy Fish.

At the 2009 Australian Open, Haas had a decent run, easily beating Eduardo Schwank in the first round and Flavio Cipolla in the second. In the third round, he fell to the tournament's first seed and eventual champion Rafael Nadal.

At the SAP Open in San Jose, he joined forces with Czech Radek Štěpánek to clinch his first doubles title, after losing in the singles quarterfinals to defending champion Andy Roddick.

Haas lost in the first round in both Memphis and Delray Beach. He did not succeed in defending his title at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, as he fell to Novak Djokovic in the third round, after defeating Óscar Hernández and Rainer Schüttler. He suffered another failure in the Miami Masters, losing to Mikhail Kukushkin.

In Houston, Texas, at the River Oaks Mens Clay Championship, Haas was defeated by Björn Phau in the quarterfinals, after he defeated defending champion Marcel Granollers in the second round.

As a qualifier in Madrid, he defeated Ernests Gulbis, before losing to Andy Roddick.

At the 2009 French Open, Haas matched his best result since 2002. He defeated Andrei Pavel in straight sets, and then won a five-setter against Leonardo Mayer. After defeating Jérémy Chardy in the third round, Haas was narrowly defeated by the former world no. 1 and eventual champion Roger Federer, in the fourth round. At a crucial stage in the third set, Haas was only five points away from his biggest win on clay, but was unable to convert a break point that would have seen him serve for the match at 5-3. Federer hit one of the most important winners of his career to level the score at 4-4, en route to an epic comeback victory 6:7(4) 5:7 6:4 6:0 6:2.

At the Gerry Weber Open in Germany, Haas won his first title on grass in his 21st ATP World Tour final. In the process, he defeated fourth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second round, Mischa Zverev in the quarterfinals, and Philipp Kohlschreiber in the semifinals. He defeated the tournament's second seed Novak Djokovic, in the final.[4]

This victory made Haas one of a very select group of players to have won ATP titles on all three major surfaces (grass, clay, and hard courts.) With Haas' success at this tournament and at the French Open, his ranking rose to no. 35.

At Wimbledon, Haas won a memorable five-set match against Marin Čilić. Haas was up two sets to love and had match points in the fourth set, then had to save two match points serving at 5–6 before the match was suspended due to darkness after over four hours of play, at 6–6 in the fifth. The next day, Haas broke Cilic at 8–8 and eventually held on to win. Haas then comfortably defeated Igor Andreev, to reach the quarterfinals. There, he defeated Novak Djokovic for the second time in three weeks to reach the semifinals at the Wimbledon for the first time in his career, where he faced Roger Federer in a rematch of their encounter in Paris. Haas lost, ensuring Federer's historic seventh Wimbledon final. This success at Wimbledon made Haas rise considerably in ATP ranking, reaching no. 19.

Haas continued his late career resurgence by making it to the semifinals at the LA Tennis Open by defeating Marat Safin in the quarterfinals.[5] But with "The Samurai" fans behind Sam Querrey at home, Haas was defeated. He made it to the third round at the US Open, losing narrowly to Fernando Verdasco, after being up a break in each set.

2010–2011[edit]

Following his comeback, however, Haas suffered from another bout of injury. He made the third round of the 2010 Australian Open, defeating Simon Greul and Janko Tipsarević, but did not play after February 2010, spending time recovering from right hip and right shoulder surgeries.[6] He missed the rest of the 2010 season and once more dropped out of the ATP rankings. He returned to action partnering Radek Štěpánek in doubles in Munich in May 2011, but then lost in the first round.[7] His return match in singles came at the 2011 French Open, where he lost in round one. He also went down in the first round at Wimbledon, but reached the third round of the 2011 US Open, losing to Juan Mónaco in four sets. Other than Grand Slams, he played little tennis, competing in only ten other tournaments, mainly in July, August, and October.

2012: Re-Resurgence[edit]

Haas began the 2012 season at the Brisbane International, but had to withdraw in the second round.[8] Nevertheless, he competed more regularly in 2012 than in previous seasons. He qualified for the 2012 French Open, progressing to the third round, and reached the semifinals of the 2012 BMW Open, returning to the world's top 100.

As a wildcard at the Gerry Weber Open in Germany, Haas won the title for the second time thanks to wins over former champions Tomáš Berdych and Philipp Kohlschreiber en route to the final,[9] where he defeated world no. 3 and five-time champion Roger Federer in two sets.[10] However, Haas was subsequently defeated in the first round of Wimbledon later that month, letting a two-sets-to-one lead slip against compatriot Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Haas lost to world no. 206, Pavol Červenák in the Stuttgart clay-court tournament at the second-round stage.[11]

Haas continued to find good form during the second half of the season. He reached the finals of the German Open Tennis Championships 2012, losing to Juan Mónaco,[12] and the 2012 Citi Open, losing to Alexandr Dolgopolov.[13] These two wins saw Haas rise back into the top 50. Haas went on to reach two quarterfinals in Masters 1000 tournaments, his best performance at that level since 2008. Haas briefly returned to the top 20 in the world in October 2012,[14] and he finished the season ranked no. 21. This was enough to earn him the Comeback Player of the Year award for a second time.[15]

2013: Back to Top Form[edit]

2013 started slowly for Haas, who lost in the 2013 Australian Open first round. However, in February at the 2013 SAP Open he reached his 25th career final against defending champion Milos Raonic, but lost in straight sets.[16] Next he played in Delray Beach International Tennis Championships as a former 2006 champion, where he lost to Ernests Gulbis in three sets in the semifinals.[17]

At Indian Wells, he lost in the fourth round to Juan Martín del Potro after saving match point to beat Nicolás Almagro in the previous round. In Miami, he beat world no. 1 Novak Djokovic in straight sets. It was his first victory over a no. 1 ranked player since 1999 (Agassi) and reminded tennis fans of his talent and adversity.[18] He followed this up with a victory over Gilles Simon to reach his first Miami semifinal, and first Masters 1000 semifinal since the 2006 Paris Masters. There, he lost to third seed David Ferrer, 6–4, 2–6, 3–6.

In April/May, he won his first title of the year at Munich, beating Philipp Kohlschreiber in an all-German final.[19]

Haas made history at the 2013 French Open, when he missed a record twelve match points against John Isner in the fourth set of their third round match. Isner won the set on a tiebreak, but in the fifth set Haas went on to recover from 2-4 down and saved a match point against him at 4-5 to eventually win 10-8.[20] Haas beat Mikhail Youzhny in the fourth round but eventually lost to Novak Djokovic in straight sets in the quarter finals.[21]

At Wimbledon, Haas advanced to the fourth round to set up a rematch against Djokovic but again lost in straight sets.

2014: Still Fighting[edit]

Tommy started off the season at the Heineken Open in Auckland, where he lost in the second round against Jack Sock in straight sets.

At the 2014 Australian Open, he was forced to retire with a reoccurring shoulder problem against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the first round after trailing 5–7, 2–5 on serve.

After the setback, he participated in the first round of the 2014 Davis Cup against Spain. He teamed up alongside Philipp Kohlschreiber in doubles, toughing out a four-set victory to hand Germany a place in the quarter-finals since 2011.

Haas then hired compatriot Alexander Waske as his new coach. His goal was to qualify for his first season-end ATP World Tour Finals, further emphasising his hunger and determination for the game.

In his next tournament, the 2014 PBZ Zagreb Indoors, Haas went on to reach the final by defeating Benjamin Becker, Andrey Kuznetsov and Daniel Evans. In the final, he was beaten by defending champion Marin Cilic in straight sets.

Haas reach the fourth round of the 2014 BNP Paribas Open. In the fourth round he was defeated by Roger Federer in straight sets.

Playing Style[edit]

Haas is a classic all-court player, capable of playing well on clay, hard, and grass surfaces. Nick Bollettieri noted Haas as having "one of the greatest backhands in the world," praising its versatility and power.[22] Haas also possess a powerful slice backhand, which he uses to disrupt the rhythm of the point and to construct offensive positions. He also possess an excellent serve and a functional set of volleys.

Haas possesses excellent footwork and racquet skills, both of which he uses to construct quick defensive-to-offensive transitions. The fluidity of his game overall allows him to adapt to most situations, as demonstrated by his equal win percentage over both right and left-handed players, as well as his relatively even win percentages on all surfaces.[23] Haas' mental game is also solid, boasting a positive win record in deciding sets (3rd or 5th).[23]

Playing equipment[edit]

His equipment is Nike and Asics for clothes and shoes. He switched to Head racquets in 2009, after having used Dunlop Sport racquets for most of his career.

Personal life[edit]

Haas was born to Brigitte and Peter Haas. He has two sisters, Sabine (born 24 April 1975) and Karin (born 16 June 1979).

On 27 January 2010, Haas became a United States citizen.[24]

On 5 July 2010, Haas announced on his website that he would become a father for the first time. And on 15 November 2010, Haas announced on his website that his wife, actress Sara Foster had given birth to a baby girl, Valentina. He said he wanted to keep playing long enough for his daughter to watch him play.[25] This happened in 2013 in Miami, when she greeted him after his victory over Dolgopolov.
