    Tommy Haas is the man. He is always fun to watch. He is an angry guy when in the match but is pretty nice once he gets out of competition mode. I might actually care when he walks away from tennis.

    His attitude was great. Everyone stood up when he was leaving the court. I'm quite sure that the people who watched that had a lot of fun, especially when he lost the point:twisted:

    Yeah, he just took more points off Haas than any of the British team could in a year (bar Murray, of course).

    I thought this was going to be an actual good player.
    But Haas is a very nice guy

    It would've been nice if one of the ballkids was an actual junior player, I bet Haas would've played longer and the crowd would've gotten into it more.

    This changed my opinion of Haas, though. I used to think of him as a jerk.

    Haha that is pretty cool. Cool to see something different once and awhile.

    Does anyone know what it takes to become a ballboy/girl? I always thought it was mainly tennis players who become them for a tournament, but I guess I am wrong!
