Tommy Haas

Currently ranked #10 on the ATP Mens’ Tennis World Rankings, Tommy Haas is feared for his incredibly strong backhand. He has reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open and the quarter-finals of the US Open on three different occasions.

Benjamin Becker

The 26-year-old is primarily known for his huge serve, which has been recorded at over 120 mph/193.1kph. Ranked #38 on the ATP singles rankings, he has the dubious honour of beating the legendary Andre Agassis in his final match at the US Open, before Agassis retired from professional tennis. Although Becker has yet to claim a major title, he went through to the second round at Wimbledon in 2006, and reached the third round at the 2006 US Open.

In the same year, he scooped the ATP Newcomer of the Year award.

Philipp Kohlschreiber

In May 2007, Kohlschreiber claimed his first ATP tour win when he beat Mikhail Youzhny in three sets on clay in Munich. In June 2007, he reached his highest ATP singles ranking at # 28. He won a doubles title in 2005 at the Vietnam Open.

In 2005, he made it to the fourth round at the Australian Open, in 2006 and 2007 he reached the second round at the French Open and the third round at Wimbledon. In 2007, he made it to the third round of the US Open.

Alexander Waske

Turned professional in 2000. The 32-year-old achieved his highest singles ranking of #91 in 2006. To date, he has taken four ATP Tour titles.

In 2006 and 2007, he successfully claimed four doubles titles. For two of these, he was partnered with fellow Germany Davis Cup team member, Michael Kohlmann, who has recently had to withdraw from the competition due to injury.
