Henman - Will he be the Champ this year???

The last Wimbledon champion from England was in 1936.

I think this is most un-edited sentence for a long long time.

After all the years as semi-finalists and QF's I hope Henman wins this year.

If he can keep his playing level and his head, then Henman really does have a reasonable chance.

The draw is probably going to be the most significant factor - he must avoid Lleyton Hewitt. Meeting David Nalbandian could be difficult too, although Tim did put him away in four last year, when he wasn't really playing that great.

Dude, the weirdest thing happened yesterday. I playing with my bloody strawberries and cream while watching tennis, and then I looked down at my plate and the strawberries spelled out "Henman." I think it's a sign from the grass court gods that Henman will kick ass, and by that I think it means he'll win wimbledon

jtipson, exactly. I hope he gets a good draw. Not like Roger at RG, where he got to meet Kuerten at Round 3.

He has a good chance every year. Usually the pressure gets to him. We'll see.

if the pressure got to him he'd lose in the 2nd/3rd round every year..not constant SF AND qf's,

this is tim's year, its his moment, and its coming soon

The strawberries have spoken. i hope they are right.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

It's clear for a long time that Henman has a problem with pressure! and he looses in the SF cause the closer you get to win it, the more pressure increases!

the same thing happened at Roland Garros the other day. he came on court against Coria with no pressure cause nobody expected him to beat him, when he got 6/3 4/2 lead he soddenly collapsed, probably because he started thinking about the final. he didn't put one first serve in, he mist the simplest volleys and lost 13 straight games!

Whilst I feel nobody is going to stop a Federer v Roddick final I really really hope Henman can manage it - it would be the best sporting moment for me of all time

Re: Henman - Will he be the Champ this year???

I would like Federer to repeat. But if he can't, I'd like Henman to win it. And if he can't, then Roddick. Fedz needs a rival.

I think he can win ... but it would be great if someone could knock out Roddick, Hewitt and Federer before he has to play them.
