    Haas, Dolgopolov battle for Citi Open title Tommy Haas will be looking for his 14th career ATP title in his 24th final on Sunday in Washington, D.C. Standing in his way is No. 2 seed Alexandr Dolgopolov.

    Tommy Haas and Alexandr Dolgopolov will going head-to-head for the first time in their careers when they do battle in the final of the Citi Open on Sunday.

    Despite being one of the oldest players at 34, Haas is also one of the hottest on tour right now. The German captured the Halle title (d. Roger Federer) before Wimbledon, finished runner-up on the clay courts of Hamburg, and he now finds himself in another 500-point title match. Haas is 23-9 for the season following straight-set wins over Michael Russell, Leonardo Mayer, Tobias Kamke, and Mardy Fish.

    Dolgopolov has been inconsistent in 2012, to the extent that this is already tied for his best result (runner-up in Brisbane in early January). The 25th-ranked Ukrainian owns a 22-15 record after victories this week at the expense of Flavio Cipolla, Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo, James Blake, and Sam Querrey. Dolgopolov also hasn't dropped a set in Washington, D.C.

    Haas is contesting his 24th career final as he looks to build on a respectable 13-10 record in those matches. Dolgopolov is 1-2 lifetime in ATP finals, with his lone title coming last year on the clay courts of Umag.

    Based on an edge in current form and experience, Haas in two competitive sets is the pick.
