The clock is ticking for Tommy Haas. The 37-year-old German may have just played his last US Open yesterday, losing to Fernando Verdasco in the first round.
With all his experience and years on the tour, Haas was asked about who he thought are the greats of the game.
“Best player, Roger is up there, for sure,” Haas said. “I think he’s the greatest of all time. You know, the results speak for that, as well. A lot of great competitors out there, though. I think playing against Rafa is one of the most physically challenges out there. Djokovic, Murray, they make it — what they have done physically and also, you know, defensively with the shots, it’s a whole new level.
“I think Agassi is still one of the best strikers I have ever played against. When you see him hit the ball today, just hitting the ball in general, I think he’s still one of the best strikers. So it’s been great playing against so many generations. It’s been great, and I hope to have a few more first six months next year and see what else is out there for me. It’s been a fun ride.”
Haas also said Pete Sampras had the best serve.
