yep

Invitation is definitely open for Henman for his first WIM GS Final or even WIM trophy if he can beat Fed

Henman will lose to Tursunov (Safin style )

Re: Tim Henman avoided nemesis!

Henman fears no-one in his side of the draw and will go on and dominate Wimbledon this year...

Re: Tim Henman avoided nemesis!

After Roddick's win at Queens last week I'm not ready to discount him yet...that is Tim's potential SF opponent. Would be happy with either of them making it to the finals - I'm a yank who used to live in London!

Re: Tim Henman avoided nemesis!

Oops, coffee hasn't kicked in yet. Roddick would be QFs but I feel who ever wins that one will beat the semifinalist from the 3rd quarter of the draw (Cañas or Stepanek perhaps?).

Re: Tim Henman avoided nemesis!

This is going to be another tearjerker for the Henmaniac Brits... No way Henman is going to win Wimby this time... He probably won't even get to the quarters. I'm sorry for the guy and all his fans (for all of Britain in fact), but they'll have some more years...

Good luck to ...

Re: Tim Henman avoided nemesis!

I'm semi impartial (whatever that means*see signature*).
But I think Arthurs could prove to be a problem. (If he gets past Alex. If...Alex gets past Jerome )

Re: Tim Henman avoided nemesis!

Henman potentially has Grosjean in the 4th round and Roddick in the QF. I don't think that is a particularly easy road for him.

Re: Tim Henman avoided nemesis!

I think Henman can make it to the QF's after a few 5 setters, countless DF's and so on but he will not beat Roddick there. A QF appearance will be a good enough accomplishment for him this year.

Re: Tim Henman avoided nemesis!

They obviously rigged the draw to have Karlovic take out the only forseeable threat to Henman on his side of the draw.

Geez man

He struggles with bigservers and has Arthurs / Popp R3
He struggles with dogged players / Frenchies - has Grosjean R4
He struggles with one-dimensional unreturnable servers - has Roddick QF
He struggles with players with big d*cks and great mental stamina - has Hewitt SF.

Tell me which ones out of those are pushovers?
