Novak Djokovic [1] d. Tommy Haas [13], 6-1, 6-4, 7-6 (4): Sometimes players give a break away. Other times it's wrestled from them. Haas served at 4-3 in the second set, after losing the first. That doesn't go over well with Djokovic, who took him to deuce, gave no quarter, looked stoically as Haas scowled at himself and earned the break back. Both of the last two matches (Berdych v. Tomic and Djokovic v. Haas) literally ended at the same second, a final bit of synchronicity to the day.
