HENMAN COMES BACK FROM 2 SET TO LOVE & SAVES ONE MATCH POINT

6-7(2-7) 4-6 6-4 6-3 9-7

Henman saved a match point at *4-5, a game in which he had 3 double faults

Well done Henman for reaching his first grand slam quarter final outside of Wimbledon. He plays Chela next, a difficult match but compared to the rest of the draw, it isnt the worst.

Henman will remember this day for a long time*@@*

Tiger Tim is proving that he's got more intenstinal fortitude then we've given him credit for; at 30yrs he's really in the form of his life! Way to go Timbledon/Henmania (Rolmen Timgaross!)... Maybe we should test Henman to make sure he's not taking any performance enhancing drugs(^^).

Re: HENMAN COMES BACK FROM 2 SET TO LOVE & SAVES ONE MATCH POINT

that's really a good achievement for him
bad for Llodra to give away this great chance though
but positive for Tim as he managed to come back against after being 0-2 sets down and he is already heating up for Wimbledon (but still think he will never win it )

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

That's all I can say. Who would have though? Well done Tim, that's quite an amazing feat. Keep up the good work!

Well done Henman

Llodra was tired. He won 2 men & 1 mixted double matches, and he's supposed to play another mixted at the end of the day. Dunno when he plays men double, but it would be very surprising Santoro & Llodra win it this year!

Re: HENMAN COMES BACK FROM 2 SET TO LOVE & SAVES ONE MATCH POINT

To beat a Frenchman on his own soil with that crowd, what Tim pulled off was amazing! That's twice he's come back from two sets down. And he's the first Brit since 1973 to make the QFs. Chela will probably take care of him in the next match but so what? Henman should be proud. He's playing better than ever.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: HENMAN COMES BACK FROM 2 SET TO LOVE & SAVES ONE MATCH POINT

oh what a match@@@!!! NEVER would have thought Henman would make it this far! He's been having a great, great year. And this is his worst surface!!!

Congratulations to both -they both delivered a great game it seems.

Poor France!!!!!!!!! Both of their men's players are out.... Oh well, there's still Mauresmo at least.

Awesome win for Tim.
But of course the French TV did not interview him after the match but Llodra. They are so damn partisan.
Tim is really playing his best tennis for the moment.

Good stuff, Tim!
Man, oh man, it's simply agonizing having to stare at the live scoreboard like that for hours! I'm so happy - Tim, you just made my day!

Re: HENMAN COMES BACK FROM 2 SET TO LOVE & SAVES ONE MATCH POINT

Nervous at the opportunity of getting to a first Slam QF outside Wimbledon? No, of course he wasn't, what makes you think that?

Seriously, at two sets to love down I could see the headlines in the papers tomorrow slamming him just as much as they praised him yesterday. Llodra played some inspired tennis all the way through and Henman was tentative, but gradually returned better as the match went on and I think Llodra ultimately folded mentally and physically in the last couple of games. But hey, I don't care how tight it was, Henman held his nerve when it looked like it had totally deserted him in that 4-5 game, the crowd were cheering his double faults (at that stage of a match it's understandable) and he was struggling to keep the ball in play, but he clung on and held his last three service games to love. Chela is definitely favourite to beat him, but Henman does have a clay win over the Argentinian and I won't discount his chances completely.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
