    Both guys were playing pretty close to 100% (First set I think Federer WAS at 100%), and the score says it all. Haas should be in the top 10 and hopefully will be pretty soon, but as Ljubicic said, that doesn't mean he's any closer to Federer.

    Federer's forehand is one level better than Haas.

    I think his next match might be tough. Dmitry Tursunov can be dangerous, and they've never played before. Sure, it's unlikely Fed will lose but I wouldn't underestimate Tursunov, he's a hard hitter and he's already taken out Ginepri, Henman, and Robredo this year.
    Last year he beat Baghadatis at the US Open, and was close to beating Roddick at Indianapolis (lost 6-7(6) 7-6(7) 6-7(5)).

    yes, but it isn't a forcing shot. his BH is much more so.

    MAtch was not what I expected because it looked to be a rout on Haas.

    If Federer wins the French, I'd say he's the greatest all time along with the "Rocket." There's no one who can beat this guy except a dirt baller on clay, and that's a maybe.

    That's the way Haas is. When things don't go his way, he starts to ***** about everything!

    Who were these morons spreading rumours that Fed was going to lose? I think all the sportsbooks wanted suckers to bet on Haas so they paid Richard Vach of Tennis-X.com to tell his subscribers to bet on Haas. Vach predicted Greul would upset Roddick today. This guy has about as much skill in handicapping a tennis match as my stripper girlfriend does. What a joke that match was! Haas should really retire.
