You think once Tim's won a tournament, or beaten Federer that he can go onto new strengths, but he just loses to some qualifier in the next tournament. Name me a phase in Henman's career were hes consistently won tournaments??
Since when has Bjorkman been someone inferior to lose to?!! The man has been to world number in singles, and is currently number 1 in the world in doubles!! Henman bombing out early after a good run in 1 tournament - rubbish! Here was his run in the first half of the 2002 season to which you refer to, when he didn't have his dreadful shoulder injury:-
Aus Open: 4th Round (no inferior player)
Rotterdam: Final (Escude = dangerman for Henman)
Dubai: QF (Aussie Open champion)
Indian Wells: Final (Hewitt - says it all)
Miami: 4th Round (neck injury)
Monte Carlo SF (Moya too good as expected)
Rome 1st (suffering from gastroenteritis)
French Open 2nd (Malisse is another problem player for Tim)
Queen's: Final (Hewitt - once again that man is too good)
Wimbledon SF (Hewitt - starting to get on everyone's nerves now!!)
Haasfan - what on earth is "poor" about those results? After Wimbledon, Tim went up to 2 in the Champions Race! You need your head examined.
