My Name is Haas

'Mijn naam is haas' is a proverb in Dutch and it means something like: 'I don't have a clue'. You wonder where they got it from... 

Tommy Haas, American citizen, lost to Istomin, Malisse and now even Gabashvili in the last three tournaments.

Federer Out of Dubai

Roger Federer made a surprise withdrawal from the Barclays Championships Sunday with a lung infection.
But the world number one says doctors expect him to be cured in time to play the Indian Wells Masters from mid-March.
The world number one who has not played since beating Andy Murray for the Australian Open title, picked up the problem in recent days after returning to Switzerland after his Melbourne title, heading to Dubai and and then visiting a school his foundations fund in Ethiopia last week.
'I'm hoping to be back for Indian Well,s' said the 16-time Grand Slam winner. 'But of course there are no promises.
'This is something that with proper treatment will be finished,' said Federer, whose 2008 season was compromised by a case of glandular fever.
'I've been taking it easy, relaxing as much as possible. My breathing is a bit difficult and everything feels a bit slow. I can't take any chances until I'm fit again.
'It could be better, it could be worse.'
The Swiss player's place in the draw for the 500 series event which begins Monday was taken by Spaniard Tommy Robredo.
Federer missed Dubai in 2009 with injury and lost in the first round in 2008. He won the tournament in 2003-2005 and lost the 2006 final to Rafael Nadal.
Federer is due for further medical tests in several week to ascertain his condition. The Swiss said that the illness is much more straightforward than his glandular fever incident.
'I want to get back in shape and get back on court again. Once I'm back I'll be OK again.'

Vaidisova wins WTA level match

The first one in 10 months for the 194th ranked former RG semi finalist.

Reverse Aftertiming

I told the guys on chat this morning that I had a hunch Flipkens would do well versus Zvonareva. And this is what i get: 6-0 6-0. If they had played a round of strip poker Flipkens would have left the court in Dubai like this again:

Challenge Update

First couple of days have passed and it's been going to plan, so far. The first day was a bit wobbly, but I've made up for that and I'm now a little ahead of schedule.

Mentally Challenged

I have a new huge bank of €100. I've figured out that if I make 25% each day (and take commission into account) my bank should be €3788.67 by the end of the month. Because I'm a modest guy (very, very, very modest actually) I will settle for 3k. (2k would be pretty cool too btw. Or 1k...)

Good luck, myself.

PS All tips are welcome.

(Well, not ALL tips, only good ones of course...)
