Cañas vs. Henman QF

Willy has a 4-1 record against Tim, and as I could not see any of their matches, I dunno how they've been playing till this point. I feel confident about Willy kicking Henman's ass...
Opinions?

Re: Cañas vs. Henman QF

kick him Willy

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Cañas vs. Henman QF

Cañas will do him again.

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".

Re: Cañas vs. Henman QF

This won't be as dramatic as the last one, that was one match I won't forget in a while, as long as the result is the same that is what counts.

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".

Re: Cañas vs. Henman QF

Henman leading 4-1 in the 3rd and 0-30 on the Cañas serve, he serves a slow second serve and wins the match from that far back would be great to see again.

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

Re: Cañas vs. Henman QF

If Henman could get THAT close to ending him at the Aus Open 2004, I am confident he can repeat the scoreline of the first two sets.

If will be extremely tough but I think Tim will be keen to kick Canas's arse. It isn't as if he is Hewitt whom Henman fears. Plus, Canas has never done anything significant in IW - Henman is the slight favourite here I think

Re: Cañas vs. Henman QF

The only time Henman is a favourite against Cañas is on grass. Cañas has beaten the farmer 3 times on a hardcourt and the last time I looked this surface was hardcourt

Henman is 1-4 against Cañas, so I doubt he'd be the favourite in this match. I am looking forward to adding this one to the pigeon list.

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

Re: Cañas vs. Henman QF

Looks like spy sports are just showing one match at 10pm (which looks like it will be henman). I am really interested in watching this match, hopefully canas can tear him up We will get a fed kiefer reply tomorrow, but will we get the other quarters?
Also just wondering, why do sky sports not show any night matches? they have done for masters events (other than this) and they dont exactly show anything on at 12

I am not sure, but go Cañas.
