Tommy Haas: 'I'd like Roger Federer to win Wimbledon, but Djokovic will'

In an interview to Arguaer Zeitung, Tommy Haas commented on his Wimbledon favorites. The German former player said: "It seems we will see a nice semifinal between Roger and Rafa again. That's what the world of tennis wants, it's what the world of sports want to see.

It's so difficult to make a pick. I would be really shocked if Roger could win here once again. For me, however, Novak Djokovic is one of the favorites. Rafa is playing good too. Ball bounces high. But in the semifinals, I would prefer Roger."

Asked if he thought that Federer could still compete at 38 years of age, Haas replied: "If you asked me ten years ago, probably not. But if you followed over the last years, it does not surprise me. Roger is doing everything well.

The body holds up, he is mentally in a good shape. He loves this life, travels." On Federer barely dealing with injuries while Haas undergoing nine surgeries, Tommy concluded: "I am not jealous. It's useless to think about what could have been.

Of course if I had one or two less injuries, I would have had a chance to win a Grand Slam title, which is a childhood dream. But I am very satisfied with my career."
