Paris: Tommy Haas' bid to become the oldest man in the French Open's second round since Jimmy Connors in 1991 ended after less than a set on Tuesday because of pain in his right shoulder.
Now the question for the 36-year-old German, a four-time Grand Slam semifinalist, becomes how much longer he will put up with the injury.
"If it continues to go on like this, who knows? It's a tough task to continue and to see doctors every other week to try to just be able to play a tournament here or there or finish a tournament or finish matches now," Haas told The Associated Press. "We'll have to see. It's frustrating."
