Eggy i like your attitude towards the optimism of Henman fans! But in this case, i think it is right to be optimistic about Henman reaching the fourth round here for the first time. He's in the form of his life, his confidence is high, along with his ranking and he seems to have played a darn sight better than he did against Saulnier. I don't think anyone can discount his chances because he has actually beaten Blanco before with few problems at ROLAND GARROS!! If he were playing someone like Canas or Malisse in round 3 then i would have said he wouldn't win, but the situation is different here.
Yonge - If he doesn't win then i shall
because it's the best opportunity missed. OK - the advantage is that he will have longer to practice for Wimby but that itsn't that point. He is likely to get a draw with some dangermen like Ljubicic in his path and we will know that his challenge will effectively end by the semis. He needs to take the chances that he has got now, NOW!!!
Btw Yonge, i have just posted a reply to your thread
