Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

Why

He may have if Fed didn't exist.

Remember a guy named Goran who had to get in with a WC in 2001

Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

I think Mark meant that he WANTS to win Wimby more than anything and that he COULD have won it if this perfect player on fire called Federer would have been there last year. I don't think it's that weird that he thinks he can win it. Look at last years final, even though it was a straight sets victory for Federer.. Mark pushed it to the tiebreak twice... how many players did that to Fed in the rest of that tournament or in this tournament ... Mark on top of his game with his mind in the right place is capable of a lot, just not of beating Federer in his current form.

Also good luck to:
Lleyton * Marat * Todd R * Thierry * Mario * ToJo * Janko * Andrei * Seb * Nono * Misha * Igor * Fab * Kirill * Frank Dancevic

Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

I would love to see Henman win and I think he probably may want the title a bit more than Philippoussis because he knows this is his best chance and he is ready for it. I surely hope he can get to the final but needs to heat Mark tomorrow to continue on.

Go Federer, Nadal!!!

Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

Tim of course. This is his country and "the one" most likely for him to win. As for Mark, I think he believes he could Wimbledon, but I think right now, he'd like to just win some matches!

Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

Henman wants it more than anyone, scud included, but mark is a more gifted player and has more tools to be a slam champion than henman.

scud will win in 4 sets

Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

I'm hopeful that Henman will surprise me and take this match. This has been his best year, it could happen. Here's hoping.

As for who wants it more? Stupid question.

Lightbulb Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

[B][COLOR=Navy]After beating Roger once this year, reaching to the finals of the Pacific life open, after reaching to the semis of french open. Having game so well suited to wimbledon If Henman cant win this year, then he wont be able to win wimbledon at all. I hope he raises his game for the second week, with the game he has played in the first week, he doesn't hold a chance against Flip.

Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

I think Mark will win. Mark Tim or Andy will make the final. Rogi, Moya or Hewitt will make the final on the other side.

Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

Tim will win in 4 or 5 sets..it will be tough, but
tim wants the title more than anyone else, surely more than flip...
This is by far the tim's best chance of winning, support henman!!
GO TIM!

Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

Henman has not been playing well this tournament and will be challenged, if not beaten. Philippoussis is hopeless at this tournament whether or not he makes it past the Brit tomorrow.

Re: Flip vs. Henman: Who wants it more?

Hard to say

I mean, Henmans been up in the quaters and semi's so many times, but to no avail....but he hasnt made it to a final, which Mark has, and so Mark would know how heartbreaking it is to make it all that way and to not win

Still, the pressures on Henman, home tourney, big soccer and rugby losses for the poms this week, so its all on his shoulders right now

You cant discount Marks desire to win this tourney....to be able to find his form here, and last year, after returning from the various surgeries he's had to have on his knee, he may see this as one of his last remaining chances to grab a grand slam win
