    Plain and simple. K-swiss which was his last sponsor didn't renew his contract. So he's now wearing his own. He's done that before when Nike (not 100% sure) dropped him a few years back. That time it was called 'Limited'.

    Those socks are Thorlos. Specifically made for tennis they claim.

    He also wore Nike shoes with K-swiss clothes.

    it's the "cute" form of Haas in german, but I don't know why he's putting that on his shirt.
    I rather thought he's sponserd by K-Swiss... :confused:

    I agree. However, it looks wierd seeing him playing without his hat on backwards. Like something is missing.

    Apparently it's his nickname. Maybe k Swiss are doing a range for him? But it wouldn't be a surprise if they did drop him as I don't think he ever really seemed too bothered about honouring his sponsorships, with the while racket thing.

    Kswiss probably dropped him for breach of contract like Asics reportedly did. Tommy is very picky about his equipment and he kept going on court wearing Nike shoes no matter whose clothes he had on. Nike should never had dropped him, he looks great in their clothes. I would like to see them come back to the table with him and make him an offer, even if its just for supplies only and no cash. He's a popular player and it can only help Nike.

    Haas started 2004wearing Nike clothing while doing re-negotiations. He wasn't wearing the '04 specific clothing, but it was still nike.

    After Key Biscayne, he faded out with them and by the clay court season he was weaing "hasi" shirts until Asics picked him up for the Olympics. He still wore nike shoes though

    In 2005 he was wearing full Asics, but eventually went back to nike shoes.


    Can't say I blame him. Shoes are a completely different animal than compared to shirts and shorts. The wrong shoe fitting can cause serious injury.

    it also looks like he's back to 100% gut instead of a gut/poly combo he used last year. Does anyone else agree?

    K-Swiss dropped him. He wore Nike shoes throughtout the year. From the Cage 1's, to Breath 3's.

    Okay, so what is he wearing today in his match against Simon Gruel? I've seen that logo before, the red flame type brand, but I cannot remember the name. Anyone?

    Yeah I saw that. He's changed his shirt now, plain white one with a black flame logo on the chest. Driving me a bit mad that I cannot remember the name of this brand. I know we've seen another player wearing it before.

    That's exactly what it is. Thank you!

    Now, I wonder if this is a new contract for him, or just a supplier for this tournament? There's nothing on his website and the Kswiss logo is still on the bottom.

    During the Oz Open they were advertising on tv over here in Germany that he wears a company called LOS, along with a few other European players. Their logo looks nothing like the ones that have been posted though.

    Hey welcome back! Tommy is now using Murray's racquet. Which is the PT57A (Pro Tour 630) with 16x19 string pattern with the paint job of the IG Radical Pro.

    String is VS Gut in the mains and Luxilon in the crosses. Sorry don't remember which one.

    You can buy his outfit here at Tennis-warehouse.

    He plays semi-western on forehand and on backhand he has a Continental on the slice backhand and the Topspin backhand he has full eastern backhand grip.

    Good Luck to you!
