Tommy Haas


THE MODERATOR: Tommy withdrew from today's match against Agassi due to a left foot sprain that occurred in the Hrbaty match yesterday. Questions for Tommy.

Q. What did the doctor say about the seriousness of the injury, Tom?

TOMMY HAAS: I haven't taken X-rays yet. I'm going to take them later on this evening then doctors are coming at one o'clock, so I don't really know what exactly is the problem. All I know is that I have a lot of pain and I can barely walk straight and I just try to hit a few balls and it's not worth it to play.

Q. At what point in the match did it happen?

TOMMY HAAS: Actually happened in the tiebreak at 2-1, I think, for Hrbaty that I moved for a ball and I felt a little pop going there and nothing serious. And the shoes that I was wearing, I've been switching back and forth with some shoes, they were a little bit soft, didn't have the good protection there at the moment. I just called out the trainer because I wanted to make sure that nothing is really bad. We taped it up a little bit and it was fine for the next couple of sets. It was fine until yesterday afternoon, six, seven o'clock before I went to dinner. I started feeling pain, then it swelled up a little bit. I thought with some good sleep, good rest I won't feel anything in the morning, but it's gotten worse. So... That's bad luck for me.

Q. Have you and Harold found a good fit together? Will you continue to work together?

TOMMY HAAS: Yeah, we haven't spoken about it yet, but I like him a lot. It's been good, you know, he's -- he knows about tennis, a lot of things. He was a player himself. I think he can help me a lot.

Q. So it would be your desire to continue working with him?

TOMMY HAAS: Yeah, we'll see. I'm going to talk with Harold about that after the summer.

Q. If you did, would you be moving over to this side of the state?

TOMMY HAAS: Those are all things we have to discuss and think about.

Q. Why have you been trying different shoes? Is it different brands or different styles?

TOMMY HAAS: No, because the shoes I'm wearing feel a little bit heavy to me. That's why I went back to the other one and try to use those. I feel like I'm a little bit quicker on those shoes. Those were the ones that actually ended up giving me the problem. Got a little bit unlucky, bad break. That's just the way it is.

Q. At this point if it does work out with Harold, would you need him to travel full-time with you? Would that be the ideal arrangement?

TOMMY HAAS: Yeah, like I said, I don't know about that too much yet. It's a thing that we have to discuss between me and Harold and see how often he can travel with me, to which tournaments, then we have to decide.
