    It looks like his shirt said something like unlimited sports? He also had a bag which didn't really look like a tennis bag but a big "sports duffle bag"

    Doesn't he have a regular tennis sponsor for clothing?

    I've been wondering the same for a while. He's been sportings that "Limited Sports" logo all year. I always thought Asics was his sponsor. But, nowadays, he's wearing Nike shoes.

    The clothes that Haas wears are from his own company, Limited Sports, a company he founded in Germany.

    Ahh that explains it.

    But he needs a new clothing designer. I wonder if his stuff is selling well in Europe?

    Does anyone have a prettier one-hander than the German?

    A big, definitive NO! :D Absolutely not! He's got the best 1HBH down the line drive in the game. Period! :D

    Kuerten has the most beautiful one handed backhand of all. You guys are HERETICS!;)

    Actualy, I find that Pavel, Federer, and Gaudio all have prettier one-handers than Guga. But Guga could sure hit some sick angles with his backhand and rip it down-the-line. But aesthetically, Haas's is the most pleasing.

    Gasquet's strokes look choppy to me--especially his FH.

    I think Haas's backhand, while being bloody effective, isn't the "prettiest" one out there. It's just my preference that I like more elaborate-looking ones with longer take-backs. Gasquet, Gaudio, and Volandri have some of the most aesthetically-pleasing ones I've seen.

    There's two pros standing on top of a mountain. The younger one says to the older one: "Hey Tommy, let's say we run down to Beaverton and get one of them endorsements". Tommy says: "No son. Lets walk down there and start are own apparel company, and keep all the kibble and bits".

    We're talking about his backhand here.

    My how quickly they forget. The most elegant backhand in the Open era has to belong to Edberg. Haas' backhand is a thing of beauty, but for sheer aesthetics, no one has matched Edberg's.

    Same guys that buy Cayman racquets tend to buy Tommy's clothes in AA. Hail to the Victor, 25.
