The Hewitt lounge does have a rather pervy *cough*stupid*cough* name.

What ever happened to deleting the Tim forum?

I'm still confused why he gets one, and the entire French Federation doesn't

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Becca!!!! Shame on you! :waving finger:

He gets one because he's the number 4 player in the world, and we (get paid to) love him!

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

hi rebecca maybe tim doesn't have many fans here but his forum actually has more posts than many other players, so i don't see the need to delete it. i have nothing against having a French Federation forum, an i don't see what that has got to do with tim's forum.

Im a brit and have split loyalties. Of course i'd like to see him do well, however there is just something about him which makes him hard to cheer for.

Take rusedski for example, he maybe is not liked by the british media as much but he gives his all in every match, obviously has weaknesses but seems to try and remedy them and can regularly beat the top players, he's a fighter and gets pumped up something fans can relate to.

Henman on the other hand seems almost fake when doing that pathetic fist clench and seems to capitulate matches. His game in my opinion is going backwards, his serve is just pushed in and his forehand certainly not world class.

Thats not to say he doesnt deserve his no4 ranking but when theres nothing about him really remotely amiable then its obvious that in terms of fans he is going to be lacking.

I also think alot of people take the BBC wimbledon Timfest out on him instead of directing it at the BBC itself.

*I know*

What can I say, sometimes I like to argue.

But there should be a French forum. I love those guys, especially Grosjean, Santoro and Di Pasquale.

I don't really know why I don't like Tim, maybe its the teeth (just kidding, you should see mine I'll put Dracula to shame), its just hard to cheer for the guy. Maybe its the lack of charisma, his game, his demeanor in court, anything and everything that comes to mind.
Come to think of it, if Henman retires today what will tennis fans be reminded of: the guy who never went past the semi-finals of Wimbledon which is said to be his favorite tournament or the guy who never won against Hewitt. When you think of Hewitt heart and a$$hole comes to mind, Safin his two-handed backhand and headcaseness, Goran his serve and his multiple personality, Pete his focus and serve and volley and on and on and on.
Don't worry harry I'm sure you just see differently from most of us and surely one day it will dawn on us all why you really, really like Tim.

When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
Sooooo, let's all get drunk and go to
heaven!

I don't know...Am I the only one who smells the making of another anti-Henman-let's-all-use-this-thread-to-*majorly*-flame-him-cause it's-like-*totally*-cool thread? I really hope I am, because on WTAworld.com there are/were several anti-Tim threads, and to tell you the truth, I just don't feel like copying and pasting my argument from there, into here!
But I respect everyone who isn't like me and doesn't like Tim. Chacun son gout.
Oh, and I like all the French players, too! But I'm really glad Sebastien got his own forum, at least! He's so cool!
