The 35-year-old Tommy Haas is pictured about to make contact with the ball for this lunging forehand in an all-out effort to retrieve the ball to keep the point alive from this very defensive court position at Roland Garros in 2013.
The 1.88m Haas is playing in his eleventh Hamburg Tennis Championships after beginning in 1997 where he made it to the then Hamburg ATP Tour Masters 1000 semi finals on debut. Haas eclipsed his 1997 was the runner-up in 2012 making him the first German to reach the final since Michael Stich won the title in 1993 (the only German winner of Hamburg in the Open era and the Hamburg tournament director).
Born in Hamburg, Haas is the current World No.11 and No.2 seed this year. Haas achieved a career-high ranking to date of No.2 on 13 May 2002. The right-hander has won two ATP Tour titles in his latest comeback from injury and both in Germany – Halle and Munich. The local favourite will be looking to go one better after originally being set to be the No.1 seed before Roger Federer asked for a wildcard entry to compete in Hamburg.
