Re: Henman lost against Horna

Didn't get to see the last set, but Horna ended the match with 52 winners and 52 unforced errors - he certainly dictated play, although Henman's statistic of 58 UE shouldn't be overlooked either. Not a surprise, Horna has a tradition of upsetting a grass court player in the early rounds of RG every year, this year it was Henman. It opens up that section massively for Nalbandian, with both Henman and Chela out of the way; I would expect Horna to make the second week now.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

You learn never to get your hopes up too high with Henman.

Re: Henman lost against Horna

Last year was a tease.

I also would have liked to see Tim playing into next week this year too...but perhaps the time will be better spent preparing for the grass.

I love my girls.

Re: Henman lost against Horna

dammit Henman

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)

Horna
about time Farmer was sent packing

last yr's run was a bit misleading to say the truth
even his granny could have made semis against those players.

Re: Henman lost against Horna

It's not a huge upset and that's a nice win for Horna. I expect him to advance to R16 where Nalbandian probably will prevail.

I wanted Henman to go further than that, but it just wasn't his day.

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc

Re: Henman lost against Horna

well I must admit, I always take some pleasure in "Tiger" Tim losing. hopefully he loses early at Wimbledon too so I don't have to watch all of his matches on the BBC.
