“I’m probably playing some of my best tennis,” Haas said. “It’s hard to compare to where I was four or five years ago when I had my highest ranking.” Roddick, trying to win his second Memphis title, didn’t come close to breaking serve. Haas gave up only seven points off his serve in the final, and two of those were double-faults. “I guess it is quite a good record,” Haas said. “I’ve been serving well. Every time I get my first serve in … I feel like I’m dictating play. Against players like these, you have to really try to be solid on your service games.” The German won in 61 minutes, and that might have helped his travel plans. He needed to fly to the United Arab Emirates for his Tuesday match in Dubai. “Everything was coming easy to him, and everything was a little bit of a struggle for me,” Roddick said. “That’s not a good combination for me.” MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Tommy Haas knew he had been playing well this year. Winning a tournament without facing one break point? That surprised even himself. He beat Andy Roddick 6-3, 6-2 Sunday to retain his title in the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships. The German completed a week in which he didn’t face a break point in 47 games. Haas won his sixth consecutive final and 11th title overall. He also won in Memphis in 1999 and is only the second three-time winner of this event. Jimmy Connors, now Roddick’s coach, won in 1978, 1979, 1983 and 1984. Haas, ranked No. 9 entering the tournament, has not lost a final since Andre Agassi beat him in Rome in May 2002. This is the first time Haas has won titles in consecutive seasons, and he improved his record in finals to 11-9. Roddick, who will be ranked No. 3, had won three of the previous four matches against Haas – all on hardcourts. The American hadn’t played in a final since losing the U.S. Open last September to Roger Federer or won a title since Cincinnati last August. But Haas improved to 6-3 against Roddick and couldn’t have played much better. He won all but one of his 25 first-serve points. He was playing so sharply this week that his text messages with coach Thomas Hogstedt before the match Sunday didn’t involve anything to do with tennis. “He wants to make sure I get on that plane,” Haas said. Haas played so well that Roddick’s lone point off the German’s serve through his first three service games was a double-fault, and Roddick’s best chance to break Haas came in the second game of the second set. The German hit a forehand long to let Roddick pull within 40-30. Roddick then hit a backhand long, and Haas broke in each of his next two service games. “He just out-played me today,” Roddick said. “I shot myself in the foot by playing sloppy early. He just got the momentum and went with it.” ROTTERDAM, Netherlands – Unseeded Mikhail Youzhny easily beat third-seeded Ivan Ljubicic 6-2, 6-4 to win the ABN Amro title. Youzhny broke his Croatian opponent twice in the first set, and then again in the fifth game of the second set. The Russian, appearing in his fifth ATP final, beat Ljubicic for the first time in six tries. It was Youzhny’s third career title. The eighth-ranked Ljubicic, who turns 28 next month, was appearing in his third final of the season after winning at Doha, Qatar, and losing to Marcos Baghdatis at Zagreb, Croatia. BOGOTA, Colombia – Roberta Vinci won the Copa Colsanitas when top-seeded Tathiana Garbin retired in the third set because of a digestive problem. Garbin led 7-6 (5), 4-6, 3-0 in the all-Italian final when she withdrew on the advice of a doctor after her second medical consultation of the day. “I felt sick since Saturday night,” Garbin said. “I got better on Sunday morning but in the second set, when I was winning 3-0, the problem came back. I fought to try and finish the match but it was impossible.” Vinci earned $25,850 for her first WTA Tour title. BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Argentine Juan Monaco beat Alessio Di Mauro of Italy 6-1, 6-2 for his first ATP title and delighted a capacity crowd on clay at the Copa Telmex. Monaco, 22, a fifth-year pro whose only other final appearance came at Casablanca in 2005, finished off the victory in 63 minutes. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
