Wednesday Morning Man: Tommy Haas!
Whenever I’m at a tennis tournament and Tommy Haas has a match, that’s where I’m at.
Sure, the German star is movie star handsome and all, but he also has one of the most exciting games to watch – so much variety and athleticism.
Now 37, Tommy returned to the ATP Tour last month after yet another long injury break. He is working his way back from 861st in the rankings and on Monday won his first round match at Wimbledon. He became the oldest man to win a singles match at Wimbledon since a then-38-year-old Jimmy Connors in 1991.
He plays his second rounder today.
Although Tommy was ranked #2 in the world in 2002, his career has often been plagued by injury.
I hope he can make it far into the Wimbledon draw!
