Haas, a 15-time tour winner, first won the award in 2004 after returning from rotator cuff surgery on the same shoulder. He then captured the honor again in 2012 after coming back from hip and elbow procedures.

A two-time winner 2013, Haas reached the final at the Zagreb Indoors in February and lost to Marin Cilic. He also advanced to a pair of semifinals in his shortened 2014 campaign.
