Style of play
Haase has a powerful serve which often exceeds 200 kph. It is also very accurate. Although his double-handed backhand is weaker than his forehand, he can attack and defend with both. When he hits the ball very flat, he is a threat to top players, as he led Nadal by two sets to one in Wimbledon before losing in 5 sets, and holding a two sets to love lead against three time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray in the US Open and eventually losing in 5 sets. He is capable of producing spectacular shots, such as powerful forehands down the line on the run à la Sampras or backhand winners while taking the ball on the rise, his left foot in the air. An accomplished doubles player, Haase doesn't shun the odd net point. Haase is a very spirited player, who has problems maintaining his temper when a match turns for the worse.
Haase is using a Head Graphene Prestige Mid, 93 square inches. (May still be using Head Sonic Pro 17 gauge strings 55/53 lbs, which was his last tension and string choice with his previous Prestige Mid racket)
Current through 2017 Davis Cup World Group Play-offs.
