Re: Henman should retire

Crazy! tim has about 2% chance of winning it, he doesnt have it in his game i feel, just not good enough. With safin, he has the game (but at times not the brain).

What bouncing around? I've never noticed it, the commentators have never noticed it, I've never seen any opponent put off by it - this is a feeble excuse for the loss of Nieminen, who simply wasn't good enough to put Henman away.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

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.

Re: Congrats Henman!

He played like such a halfwit/boofhead/retard in the first two and a bit sets. Why the hell couldn't he keep doing that! Thanks for keeping me up til after 3am Tim. Ass

PS. Before today, and possibly, after next week, I am a bit of a Tim fan. But, not when he does thinks like this

Re: Congrats Henman!

I don't know what he was thinking, he really shouldn't have gone all the way to 5 sets against Nieminen.

Congrats for the comeback, Tim! Although it was much your job to do so I want him to get to the quarters, he really needs to pick up some points. His season has been so disappointing.
