Tommy Haas Undergoes Hip Surgery, Out Indefinitely
by Tom Gainey | March 2nd, 2010

Is it news anymore to report that Tommy Haas is injured? Newsworthy or not, the German is sadly again injured.

Haas, ranked 18 on the ATP, just underwent surgery on his right hip last Friday in Vail, Colorado.

“I had to have the operation now. The pain was simply too great,” Haas wrote on his website.

His agent Lars Schriewer also said: “Tommy has been operated upon by the best medical doctor in this field (Dr. Marc J. Philippon). He is in the best of hands. Every thing else remains to be seen.”

Some reports have Haas out as long as six months following this latest setback. I have to doubt that Haas, who turns 32 next month, will ever make it back to the Top 10.

lucia hoffman Says:

wish tommy all the best and a great recovery. he knows what it takes. and he can borrow the words of his friend, actor arnold schw. in the movie Terminator: “I will be back”…

and for you who doubt he can be back on the top ten, i suggest you review his tennis history…he is a fighter..


sar Says:

He is so handsome. Too bad for him.

Kimmi Says:

Oh No..Haas career has been plugged with serious injuries that has sidelined him for months, how many surgeries has he had so far? Bad luck I would say.

“I had to have the operation now. The pain was simply too great,”

Very Sad, that explains the back to back first round loses he had suffered end of last year and beginning of this year.. He is now 32, its will get tougher and tougher. He must love the game so much to carry-on playing with these injuries. All the best Haas

steve Says:

Sad news. I hope he recovers soon, he’s a fun player to watch.

Skeezerweezer Says:


Agreed. I will miss Tommy too. You always knew he could give anyone a tough match and no one liked to see him in the draw. Too bad, hope he recovers and gets to compete at a high level again. Anyone know his age? I know he is not a young jedi anymore…

madmax Says:


just 32.

siddy Says:

Of course he wont make it into the top ten. Do you see any thirties in the top ten. Geez.

skeezerweezer Says:
