Haas that for a career!

After 21 years of battling his way through the ATP tour, and a career high ranking of 2nd in the world in 2002, fan favourite Tommy Haas has called time on his career at the age of 39.

Haas made the quarter final stage of each of the grand slams throughout his career but perhaps his biggest achievement came in the form of the silver medal won at the Sydney Olympic games in 2000. 

He might not have earned the titles that Federer, Nadal, Murray and Djokovic have gone on to secure (he still managed 15 by the way!), but his high-octane tennis, consistent battling performances and notorious backward-hat wearing have left a mark on the tennis world!

Here at Local Tennis Leagues we're keen to find our own Tommy Haas's! Our new blog is all about you, so we want to hear from our longest serving players. You might not have won an Olympic medal or played in our leagues for more than two decades (yet!), but it's your stories that mean the most to us. We really do want to hear your highs, lows and tales from the years you have played with us!

Whilst we congratulate Tommy Haas on what has been a greatly entertaining career, we encourage you to tweet @Tennisleagues and Facebook @localtennisleagues with your #localtennisleagues stories!

We can't wait to hear from you!
