    All I can say is it's nice to see Haas winning. I love his style and Malisse played a great match as well in Delray. It's nice having The Tennis Channel since they show players besides, Roddick, Williams sisters, Davenport and Nadal over and over (although I like most of these players also).

    Considering the score, the match must have been quite good and close.
    Was there any sign of choking on either side, since neither of them is known for mental toughness?
    Glad to see Haas has been playing well.
    I need the tennis channel.:(

    Well the third got a little tight for them at the end because the wind starting blowing and was causing some anticipation problems. They each had some mishits that caused some errors. Haas made most of his errors in the 2nd set but was able to come through with some great shots in the 3rd. I didn't notice either player struggling mentally at all. It was a good enjoyable match. Doubles final is on now.

    Yes, Haas is playing very well these days; he was terrific at the Australian Open. Maybe it has something to do with getting rid of the ponytail!

    I think getting rid of his ponytail just shows that he's gotten more serious about his game, and his results so far this year have shown this. He also has a new coach which I'm sure has refreshed his game. I hope he continues to do well this year. I love his 1HBH. I think he's got the best one on the tour.

    It's too bad the match ended on a broken string.

    let´s just hope that haas` shoulder will be fine till the end of his career, which nearly had him quit tennis. I think if he can keep that shape or even improve, he will surely be a canidate for the top10 again.
