Will Henman Ever Win Wimbledon?

Hopefully he'll win it this year because this might be his last chance

Re: Will Henman Ever Win Wimbledon?

hmmmmmmm WILL he? I don't know. CAN he? I think so. He's just never been able to put it together and he always seems to succomb to the pressure of the home crowd and his country and stuff. I hope he can though, if for no other reason so that we don't have to hear about it anymore

Re: Will Henman Ever Win Wimbledon?

I think that the pressure is killing him- he can do it, but he won't...and actually the draw is not helping him at all- Nalbandian and Grosjean in 2003, Ferreira and Hewitt in 2002, Schalken, T.Martin, Federer and Ivanisevic in 2001...

Re: Will Henman Ever Win Wimbledon?

He can and he will. If he wins it I think we need to have another poll on who's the strongest mentally , cause I think it's not easy to satisfy the expectations of a nation that easily. For two weeks he needs to focus on his opponent and the entire country that has such high expectations.

Re: Will Henman Ever Win Wimbledon?

He will win it!! I think theres just so much pressure on him because he's practiclly the only Brit that can win it right now!! Without Henman or Rusedski, I think right now the would look pretty pathetic!! Hopefully they have some young, talented players in the juniors that will succeed Henman! He may win it next year but If he runs into Federer, I dont think he'll be able to beat him!! Kind of like when Henman used to run into Sampras

Couldn't agree more! Now that's a bit worrying - we're agreeing again tangy!

Re: Will Henman Ever Win Wimbledon?

He's got a good chance this year. There are some people he might have to avoid though, particularly Lleyton Hewitt, and possibly David Nalbandian (even though Tim won their 2003 encounter at Wimbledon). Unlike Fedex, I'd give Tim good odds against Roger Federer given their match history; although I'd like to hope Roger will soon figure out how to beat him.

LOL! You've made me laugh again! And do you realise that's the second time you've wished him HAPPY BIRTHDAY?! Yes 22 is very young - but then I've always wanted a "toy boy"

Re: Will Henman Ever Win Wimbledon?

Yes, Feds history with Tim is terrible!! BUT i think he is one of the only players that could beat him on grass! Since he is a great grass court player himself!! I think from now on he wont have to worry about Hewitt on this surface!! I mean he's a much better grass player than Hewitt!!! David could still give him trouble on this surface however! Because David is a more complete player than Hewitt, with no real weaknessess! I doubt Hewitt will EVER win Wimbledon again!!

Re: Will Henman Ever Win Wimbledon?

There are a lot of players good on grass who could potentially give Tim, or even Roger, problems. Taylor Dent could be LETHAL on grass if he could put it all together and stay healthy. I think if he's really on, especially serving well, he could beat anyone on a fast surface like grass. Dahveed too (a previous finalist can't ever be counted out), Andy showed he can be quite a grass player esp. with improved volleying which he's doing, Mardy Fish for sure, since he managed a set from Roger and has only improved leaps and bounds since last June, plus others like Grosjean, Flip, Lopez, Myrnyi, Agassi, Hewitt, etc... lots of people could potentially pose problems!

Re: Will Henman Ever Win Wimbledon?

I've never been a fan of him, but definitely it would be nice to see him winning it FINALLY.

Honest answer?...No.

Aren't all love stories destined to fail?
