Tommy Haas played what will likely be his last ATP match on German soil, falling to Argentina’s Nicolas Kicker, 7-5, 6-2 at the German Open in Hamburg. The German, playing his last season on the ATP Tour, was a runner-up at Hamburg in 2012 and reached the quarterfinals in his last visit in 2013.

On Tuesday the 39-year-old wild card was broken five times in 10 service games to fall to Kicker in one hour and 26 minutes.

After the match he was corralled for an impromptu on-court interview with Michael Stich, where he was given a chance to say goodbye to fans.

Haas falls to 6-13 on the season, but he has had his high points. In June he upset Roger Federer on grass at Stuttgart and went on to reach the quarterfinal.

Haas wasn’t the only one to say goodbye on Tuesday at the German Open. Top-seeded Albert Ramos-Vinolas was edged by World No.138 Leonardo Mayer, while No.2-seeded Pablo Cuevas fell to Andrey Kuznetsov.

No.3-seeded Karen Khachanov defeated 16-year-old German qualifier Rudolf Molleker in straight sets, while Philipp Kohlschreiber (d. Rublev) and Federico Delbonis (d. Berlocq) also moved through.
