The closest R4 match-up...who will win?

Everyone is talking about the highlight of the R4 matches being Agassi or Federer...but what about...

Tim Henman v Tommy Robredo?

This match is likely to be one of the most hardfought and closest matches I think. Also, many are undecided on who will win. I say 51% Henman. He has a good track record in IW, something Tommy hasn't thus far, and he also has a very good record against him. Tommy struggled badly in his last round and was lucky to get through. However, I think he is playing better than Henman right now..but he seems to come up short against the Brit.

Anybody also tipping the winner of this match for the SF? I am.

I am going for the umpire.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Neither of them have been that convincing in the televised matches I have seen so far - but given the surface and their "history" - I give Tim the edge tonight.
