Rotterdam: Henman def. Johansson 6-4, 6-4

Impressive stuff, considering there was a doubt he would even be able to play - not a breakpoint faced in the second set, solid serving and good aggression off the second shot. Tojo did look down on himself as he so often is when he's losing, but still a quality performance. Nice to see such a good reception from the crowd at the end too, perhaps he's more appreciated here with so many other big names having pulled out.

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.

Tim made no mistake in closing it out. All first serves in.

Looked very confident unlike ToJo who was talking to himself in Swedish during the final game.

Tojo is a big whinger, that's why I find it funny when people slate him as a "robotic" Grand Slam winner. I almost thought he was on the verge of being defaulted against Dent at Nottingham last year, and he ended up effectively defaulting himself with one of those awkward injuries that's brought on by too many bad calls.

ToJo robotic? He's a very emotional Swede, unlike the IceMan.

Well done, Tim, old bean!

Re: Rotterdam: Henman def. Johansson 6-4, 6-4

congrats Timbo, didnt expect that ..
but as usual, lets wait and see how the back/wherever is injured lately reacts overnight..
a run of matches for Henman, that's when the problems begin.

Re: Rotterdam: Henman def. Johansson 6-4, 6-4

Tim does like Rotterdam. It's nice to see him putting a run of sorts together. One last hurrah Timmy this year at Wimby please so we can have headlines like "Pretender Has To Wait -The King Is Still Alive!"

Please see here if interested in downloading tennis matches.

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards. Do try and understand the difference (TARDS)! Don't get me started on Choke-ovic though. Him I do despise. And his TARDS are the lowest of the low .

Yes, but I fear we already had the "Le Roi est Mort, Vive le Roi!" headlines on the first Thursday of last year's Wimbledon.
