Haas Notches 500th Career Match Win

Tommy Haas became the fourth active player and 38th player in the open era to reach 500 wins. On Thursday the German stopped Jessie Levine 6-4, 6-2 in second round of the Erste Open.

“I knew for a few days that I would reach the milestone if I won this match. This was a big goal of mine,” said Haas. “In April, I was at around 472 wins and I knew it wouldn’t be easy to win another 27 or 28 matches. It makes me really proud and for sure this is one of my biggest achievements after everything that happened. The fact that it happened here in Vienna makes it very special. Getting such a gift on top of it makes it an amazing day for me.”
