  • Haas battles past Andreev in Stuttgart opener

    7/10/12 10:48 PM | Ricky Dimon
    Tommy Haas scores a three-set win in the Stuttgart first round on Tuesday as he dismisses Igor Andreev. Next up for Haas is another qualifier, Pavol Cervenak.

    Tommy Haas overcame Igor Andreev 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 in the opening round of the Mercedes Cup on Tuesday afternoon. Haas served at a horrid 43 percent but he was broken only once en route to getting the job done in one hour and 36 minutes.

    It was Andreev who got off to a fast start in this one. The veteran Russian broke once in the first set and did not face a single break point before closing things out at 5-4.

    Haas, though, bounced back right away in the second. The 34-year-old German broke for an immediate 2-0 lead and cruised the entire rest of the way. He did not yield a single break chance to Andreev in sets two and three while winning 17 of 18 first-serve points in the final two frames.

    "I'm excited to be back," said Haas, who finished runner-up in Stuttgart in 1999 but had not returned to the event since 2000. "My family is here. My daughter gets to see me play a little bit even though she won't realize the fact that I'm actually out there playing.

    "I had a tough opponent today who's on his way back from injuries as well. I'm really happy about the fact that I got a victory over him on clay."
