Because so many people thought Henman has no chance at all, and speaking things like 'Tim will have to play ten times better then against Chella' and '
Coria in three' and so on.
I was one of the rares who reffered to the fact that Henman already did beat Coria on clay. Some said 'but Coria is better now'. The lesson is - tradition is tradition, and if one is tough for you know, he will more or less stay tough in the future. Tradition means so much, never underestimate the results from the past.
Coria wasn't favorite at all. He went through the eye of a needle. This could have easily be a Henman destroy show. Tim missed just a little in the second set to make just that of this match. Remember that Coria never came for 2 sets down.
So congratulations Tim, I'm so glad you prooved some things!
Now I'm eager to see how will Coria do against Gaudio in finals - although I think Coria will win as expected.
Sure Coria was favourite......you´re talkin about stats.....he was 2-1 (now he wants to join nalby and cañas in the "own timmy club")
and then i hear destroy show....and then i remember timmy got a bagel!!!
