"But, that's part of the game, that's part of life and you try to make the best of it," said Haas. "That's really no excuse, because my opponent has to deal with the same thing."
Just like Dolgopolov's four other opponents this week, Haas was eventually worn down by Dolgopolov's quick style. Haas said he was prepared for it, but said when Dolgopolov is tough when he's on his game. That quick style, which can often be seen as risky draws from Dolgopolov's personality. He said he enjoys taking chances off the court, such as racing cars at over 200 mph.
"I don't think about the percentages," said Dolgopolov. "I like to do it my way."
This is Dolgopolov's first title since last July, which he said he didn't think much about. Instead he kept a simple mindset and approached each match the same.
