    Haas beats Granollers for quarterfinal spot in Halle Tommy Haas takes out Marcel Granollers in straight sets to reach the Halle quarterfinals on Thursday. Next up for Haas is No. 3 seed Tomas Berdych.

    Tommy Haas treated the home crown to a 6-3, 6-4 win over Marcel Granollers in the second round of the Gerry Weber Open on Thursday afternoon. Haas held all 10 of his service games while facing only one break point as he booked a place in the quarterfinals after one hour and 18 minutes of play.

    The 34-year-old German took control right from the start, breaking at love for a 3-1 advantage. After serving out the first set at love, Haas waited to break until striking for a crucial break at 4-4 in the second. He clinched victory with another love hold, capitalizing on his first match point with a forehand winner.

    "I played him recently in Indian Wells, where I lost a tough three-setter, so I was seeking revenge," Haas noted. "I knew I had to play some of my best tennis and I think this was one of my best matches throughout the whole year. I'm really pleased to have beaten him today."

    Haas, a wild-card entrant, faces another seed on Friday in the form of No. 3 Tomas Berdych. They have faced each other three times and Berdych leads the series 2-1 after winning a five-set thriller at Wimbledon in 2006.
