Three-time semifinalist Tommy Haas has announced that he will not be playing the Australian Open. The 36-year-old, who hasn’t played since undergoing right shoulder surgery on June 17, hopes to start his 19th year on the tour at Indian Wells in March.

Jack Sock is the only other Top 100 player right now that will not be in Australia. The young American is recovering from hip surgery.

Humble Rafa Says:

Our beloved President of the Injury Club will spend the Australian Open doing Club duties, but make no mistake, he will be back. He may not have 4 kids but he is still old and willing.

Tennis Island Says:

Too bad. Tommy is a great example of a relentless player who loves tennis. He will be back soon

RZ Says:

I think this may be Tommy’s last year on tour. He was so close to being in the top 10 at the beginning of 2013. Hopefully he will be back for Indian Wells and the rest of the year.

SG1 Says:

One of the better players to never win a major. Just lacks that one awesome weapon needed to blow open a point.

Strangely, I don’t think that Novak has a killer shot in his arsenal either. It’s his return of serve and mind boggling court coverage are what make him No.1.

Wog Boy Says:

Nole (maybe) doesn’t have a killer shot, but he doesn’t have a week shot (or part of his game) either. His killer shot could be return (why not?), that gives him initiative immediately after oponents serve, even in deffence Nole stays on base line and builds the point, his FH is exelent, no player likes his BH and BH on the run or BH return, his serve is great, in one world his game is complete and still improving, does he really need a killer shot.
Andy Roddick had a killer shot (FH) and killer serve, didn’t do much with it, what is Federer’s killer shot?
BTW, this is just coversation, not arguing, I generaly like your posts.

SG1 Says:

Wog Boy…I agree with your post. All of Novak’s shots are excellent. I was just saying that he doesn’t have that signature kill shot like the Federer forehand or the Nadal forehand.

But, there’s no doubt in my mind that he’s the best player in the world. His is a case of the sum being more than the total of the individual parts.
