    5/4/13 10:09 PM | Cheryl Murray
    Haas, Kohlschreiber advance to Munich final It will be an all-German final on Sunday as veterans Tommy Haas and Philipp Kohlschreiber get through the semifinals.

    Tommy Haas (3) def. Ivan Dodig 6-4, 6-3

    The first semifinal of the day brought an easy win to top German Tommy Haas, who blew past Croatia's Ivan Dodig in straight sets.

    Haas was impressive throughout the match, displaying legs that handled the long rallies better at age 35 than his 28-year-old opponent. The German's backhand, clearly Haas' best shot, was in full bloom, delighting the German crowd.

    Haas secured three breaks of the Dodig serve en route to the straight-set win.

    Philipp Kohlschreiber (4) def. Daniel Brands 6-7(4), 6-3, 7-6(5)

    This match was a treat for the German crowd, with plenty of clutch play and momentum shifts to please the viewing audience.

    The first set progressed without a single break-point chance for either player, but it was the in-form Daniel Brands who pushed his advantage first, taking the tiebreaker and with it the lead.

    Philipp Kohlschreiber snagged the first break of the match on his first opportunity to level the match at a set apiece.

    But the third set offered the most drama. Brands drew first blood, taking a 4-1 lead before Kohlschreiber found his way back in the match. The elder German kept his head on the important points, coming back again in the tiebreaker after being down a mini-break.

What an amazing feat. Tommy wins his first title on clay at age 35.

^^Tommy will be ranked #13 on Monday, unbelievable. He could be at the WTF come end of season, the young guns should be ashamed.

His is such an inspirational story for any player faced with a career threatening injury. A living testimony to what can be achieved with natural talent combined with dogged determination and hardwork.

I had a lump in my throat watching him carry his little girl onto the court for the award ceremony. He has said all along his motivation has been the desire to play long enough for his daughter to see him winning at tennis.
