Tommy Haas (born 3 April 1978 as Thomas Mario Haas) is a German and recently naturalized American professional tennis player. He has competed on the ATP Tour since 1996. After breaking into the world top 100 in 1997, and reaching a career-high ranking of world no. 2 on 13 May 2002, Haas's career has been interrupted by injuries: whilst a professional, he has twice dropped out of the world rankings due to being inactive for twelve months. His first period of injury saw him miss the whole of the 2003 season, and he did not return to the world's top ten until 2007. He also missed over a year's tennis between February 2010 and June 2011, but has since returned to play on the Tour.

Haas has never won a Grand Slam tournament, his best result being the semi-finals at the Australian Open and Wimbledon. He has won thirteen career titles in singles and doubles, including one Masters tournament, and has a silver medal from the 2000 Summer Olympics.
