• Haas takes on Mayer in Washington second round

    8/1/12 6:42 AM | Ricky Dimon
    Haas takes on Mayer in Washington second round Tommy Haas is eying a spot in the Washington quarterfinals on Wednesday. He is set for a second career encounter with Leonardo Mayer.

    Tommy Haas and Leonardo Mayer will be doing battle for the second time in their careers when they clash in round two of the Citi Open on Wednesday. Their only previous encounter came three years ago at Roland Garros, where Haas survived 6-3, 7-6(2), 3-6, 4-6, 6-3.

    The German is still going strong at 34 years old. He improved his record for the season to an outstanding 20-9 after cruising past Michael Russell 6-4, 6-2 on Tuesday. Haas was a recent finalist in Hamburg and he also captured the Halle title (d. Roger Federer) just before Wimbledon.

    Mayer dealt with injury issues for much of 2011, but he is a respectable 12-11 at the ATP level this year. The 63rd-ranked Argentine reached the third round of the French Open and he is coming off a quarterfinal performance in Los Angeles. Mayer downed Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 7-6(5), 7-6(8) in his Washington opener on Monday.

    A considerable force on fast surfaces, Mayer did not face a single break point against Garcia-Lopez (but he also earned no chances of his own). He can keep this close if he continues to serve well, but Haas in straight sets is the pick.
