Guess I missed them, have been between the tv and here...my tv coverage is about 1 set behind

Were they crucial calls?

Nice use of the English language there by Philippoussis He has every right to complain to the umpire but using such language is simply pathetic!

Well Mark is angry. that's why he use those words, you can't help it when there is an andrenaline rush, still, it is not appropriate but toally understandable.

I hoep Mark wins, Henmania is growing as far as I can see, and soon my head will explode.

Re: About 3 wrong calls in favour for Henman already

I’m only guessing here on which choice words Mark decided to use
Wish I’d seen what happened since I keep dashing from the office to see what's happening.
I was only aware of ‘something’ when the commentator ‘apologised’ for the broadcasted language. How very PC/BBC of him *cough*

Re: About 3 wrong calls in favour for Henman already

There were a few 'Fs' by Philippoussis and also he just hit the ball into the crowd and nearly had a ball abuse warning but the umpire sensibly didn't give him one as he did apologise straight away.

I get the feeing though that the crowd are confused as they are cheering Henman faults thinking they are aces

LOL, it is turning out to be quite a fun match, and the commentating is getting better since Andrew Castle quiet down a bit
