German veteran Tommy Haas ousted Nicolas Almagro in the first round of the Shanghai Masters on Monday, dealing a huge blow to the Spaniard’s hopes of qualifying for the ATP World Tour Finals.

The former world number two withstood a barrage of 18 aces and saved seven of eight break points against the ninth seed, battling back from losing the first set to win 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 6-2.
