Jannik Sinner and Tommy Haas had met each other in the quarterfinal of an exhibition match
Young Italian tennis star Jannik Sinner was recently involved in a crazy tweener battle with Tommy Haas during an exhibition match at Berlin.
The two tennis stars played an incredible rally involving two tweeners in their quarter-final game at the Steffi Graf Stadium on Monday.
The 18-year-old Sinner emerged the eventual winner as he defeated former German professional Haas 6-4, 3-6, 10-8 to progress into the semi-finals.
However, it was the two tweeners displayed by the young and his elder opponent that caught much of the attention during the entire course of the match.

Despite retiring from the game almost two years back, Haas displayed moments of brilliance which proved that talent does not vanish with time.
Sinner suffers loss in the semi-finals
Sinner’s victory over Haas was, however, his highest achievement in the tournament as he lost to World No.3 Dominic Thiem in the semi-finals on Tuesday.
Thiem, who has been busy over the last month playing at the Adria Tour, Ultimate Tennis Showdown, and Thiem’s 7, meanwhile, recorded a comfortable 6-3, 7-6, (7-5) win over his younger opponent.
In the other semi-final, Ultimate Tennis Showdown champion Matteo Berrettini beat Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut, to set up a summit clash against Thiem.
Despite suffering a first set loss, Italian Berrettini overcame Agut 4-6, 6-3, 10-6 to progress into the finals. Meanwhile, Elina Svitolina and Petra Kvitova will meet in the women’s final after both the players won their semi-finals in straight sets.
