Henman glides like ice-cream on clay

he's become so cool to watch.

i wish he had discovered this ability earlier in his career.

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: Henman glides like ice-cream on clay

I want to see this chap in the semi's again

unless that means he has to beat Nadal or Coria, and maybe Fed, to get there I havent really gone through the draw to see all the possible matchups yet

Legendary Lleyton Hewitt

& the rest of the Aussie armada

Rafael Nadal
Guillermo Coria

Taylor Dent

Re: Henman glides like ice-cream on clay

Yeah, he is a very enjoyable player to watch on any surface, on clay in particular.. So ncie to see a player who actually plays a game on clay as opposite to all this topspin junkballing.. It's only the first day .. I am already sick of it.. I wish Henman had finished Pinocchio off in last year semis..

Re: Henman glides like ice-cream on clay

gotcha. i think the commentators made an error that i repeated bec they said "next up Chela". or maybe they were just predicting and i missed that.

Re: Henman glides like ice-cream on clay

He's a wonderful player with an unique, subtle style. Underestimated as well, I think. I hope he has once again a good run here.
I thought it was such a pity he did not make it to the final, this would have been so funny: the guy all the Brits want to play a Wimbledon final, plays the final in Paris.

Re: Henman glides like ice-cream on clay

of course he'd win easy when he's not on Brit Es

Had he been he would have tortured us for his usual 4 hours

Luis Horna "the Bald Eagle" is next
go Luis, show him your eyebrows
