Re: Stepanek def. Henman 6-7,7-6,6-1

When he got broken a second time I had the feeling just from following the score that as a 31-year old he wanted to get some kip, I can't really blame him. Has there been another match in recent years that's finished this late? I know Nalbandian v Coria at this year's AO ended up finishing after 2am due to previous matches overrunning, but I can't imagine many people stayed around for this one as a few did in Australia.

Well done Tim, you're in serious trouble now that you can't even beat Sexy Radek.

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: Stepanek def. Henman 6-7,7-6,6-1

But were there any breaks at all in the first two sets? There seemed to me to be a complete service deadlock brought on by two attacking players matched up on an indoor court, and then Henman simply fell away in the final set. Hard to choke when a match is so service-dominated, I'll bet Radek only got one decisive point against serve in the second set TB.

there was a break each, in the 2nd set.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Re: Stepanek def. Henman 6-7,7-6,6-1

When Henman is in a match situation of 7-6 6-6 , he fucks it up/goes on to lose so many times... or in Grand slam terms 7-6 7-5 6-6 (v canas AO 2004) you just know he's gonna choke as he rarely closing out the match tie break.

he has the killer instinct of a kitten.

I believe George coined the phrase Pussycat Tim after the Canas match at the AO.

there's no doubt he's become a wimp now.. when the pressure is on, he folds up like a cheap tent, even on a surface where he was once one of the best.

That's an awful match for Henman, even though Radek is a top 20 player and pretty typical of his year so far. Until not long ago players like Stepanek were fodder for him on this surface.
