However, a start during the European clay court swing is almost impossible. There is still a glimmer of hope that Haas can return to competition with the start of the grass court season.

“We still hope that Haas can play at the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart,” told Alexander Stöhr of Haas’ management. The tournament takes place the week after Roland Garros.

Haas is currently ranked on 361st position and played his last match on the tour at the Erste Bank Open in Vienna in October 2015 when he lost to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the opening round.
