Berlin. Die knapp 600 Kilometer vom Familienbesuch in München bis nach Berlin fuhr Tommy Haas selbst. „Ich fahre gern Auto, wenn ich in Deutschland bin“, sagt der 42-Jährige, der in der kommenden Woche am Einladungsturnier „bett1ACES“ in der Hauptstadt teilnimmt. Im Interview spricht der gebürtige Hamburger, der 2002 die Nummer zwei der Weltrangliste war, über die schwierige Rolle des Tennis in Corona-Zeiten, das Doppel-Event in Berlin und das Verhalten von Alexander Zverev.
