Tommy Haas is through his 25th career ATP final after a straight-set win over John Isner on Saturday in San Jose. Haas awaits either Milos Raonic or Sam Querrey.
Tommy Haas just continues to turn back the clock.
Haas, 34, moved to within one win of his 14th career ATP title when he cruised past John Isner 6-3, 6-4 in the semifinals of the SAP Open on Saturday afternoon. San Jose's No. 4 seed fired eight aces while serving at 75 percent and he needed just one hour to advance.
A single break of Isner is often enough to take complete control, and Haas earned just that in the second game of the match. The world No. 22 raced to a 3-0 advantage and held on comfortably, dropping a mere three points in five service games during the first set.
Isner had a chance to get back on track in the second, but he netted a backhand return on his only break chance of the day at 4-3 in the second. Unable to shake the disappointment, the 6'9'' American promptly dropped serve in the following game with a forehand in the net at 30-40. Haas double-faulted on his first match point at 5-4, but he forced Isner into an error with a big forehand to clinch victory.
"I think I played as good as I could today," assured Haas, who will face either Sam Querrey or two-time defending champion Milos Raonic in his 25th career ATP final. "This whole week has been pretty good. I can't believe I'm in the final here. I'm really excited about it."
