Tommy Haas’s excellent French Open got even better today. The 35-year-old ageless German advanced to his first French Open quarterfinal and to make it even better he got watch his opponent, the volatile Mikhail Youzhny, destroy his racquet early on in a 61, 61, 63 victory over the Russian.

The Russian had just lost the first set when he cracked his racquet almost a dozen times on his bench.

“I love that stuff,” admitted Haas about players like Youzhny showing personality. “I want to actually look at it a couple of times and watch it on the screen.

“I enjoy seeing some of the that stuff, emotions, let it out there. It’s not always fun to just see somebody in cool, cool state of mind, you know.

“He’s done some crazy stuff in the past, you know, when he hit the racquet on his head,” he added. “I was not hoping for that again, but, you know, that was fun to see.”

The temperamental Haas loves it even more when he ends up winning the match.

Haas, who has now made the quarterfinals at all four Grand Slams, goes up against world No. 1 Novak Djokovic on Wednesday in a rematch of his big win over the Serb in Miami.

“One of the biggest challenges in tennis if not the biggest one right now playing against the No. 1 player in the world,” he said, “somebody that’s very, very eager to win this title, one that’s missing in his collection.”

Djokovic beat Haas’s countryman Philipp Kohlschreiber in four sets.
