In a interview with German Newspaper Bild. Tommy Haas has indicated that he will retire in the near future but as to when is still unknown. The 36 year old former world number 2 (May 2002) has been recently struggling with a shoulder injury which forced him to pull out of the recent Monte Carlo Masters tournament. So far this year his win-loss is 9-7 with his best result so far being runner up at the Zagreb Indoors back in February. When he was asked about how much longer he is going to keep playing by Kai Psotta. He responded (rough German translation):-

" My career-ending is not far away . When it is just so far, I do not know. I"ll feel when it"s time to go . My friend Andy Roddick is one day stood up and felt that it , time to go " is that he has only played the U.S. Open and then it was over . And he is with himself and his career at peace . So I would wish me well . "

Also in the interview he criticised the German Tennis federation and called for a full time president to be implemented by saying "A bit of DTB-President is on the side of absolute bull****". He said this in reference to current president Karl-Georg Altenburg who is stepping down in November due to commitments in the banking sector. He elaborated more by saying:-

"When DTB President what you should put on your feet and make it not only half-heartedly on the side. It must be one who knows the sport well, and above all it should be a full-time job,

Maybe this is a role for Haas when his tennis career ends?

Tommy Haas returns to action at the BMW Open in Munich which begins tomorrow. He is seeded second and will receive a first round bye. His first match will be against the winner of the first round match between Alejandro Falla and Jarkko Nieminen.
