Haas a fantastic record against Simon and frankly I would've been amazed had he lost. In-fact, he could be ranked above him next week. Not even an upset. Very under-rated player, will probably get back into the top 10 soon, at Tipsarevic's expense.
Got to fancy his chances against Ferrer, who has looked quite poor this year.
Yes, I agree. This win over Simon wasn't too surprising given that he already has a great H2H against him. However, he could have gotten a bit carried away after the big and convincing over Nole the previous day. So in that sense it's a great victory. Hopefully he'll get one more win over Ferrer. These two haven't played in a while, so it will be interesting to see how this goes as Ferrer seems vulnerable this year and perhaps, a bit jaded. Ferrer still leads 2-0 over Haas but it would be justified if Haas could make the final here. I'll take Haas any day over Ferrer because as consistent as Ferrer is, he doesn't have the game to pull a big upset as Haas and some others are capable of doing; plus, Haas has a very attractive game and can offer much more variety. Still, I am not sure if he'll be able to break through Ferrer's defense unless he has a specific game-plan going into the match tomorrow.
