Re: Henman chances to win Qatar?

Getting better by the day, I would say. He's even been to the final twice before.

I'd love to see Tim play Seb Grosjean in Doha, and not only because they have had a closely contested set of matches over the last 6 months.

If Nalbandian does end up withdrawing from the AO, then a Henman/Grosjean semi might determine who gets the last quarter-final seeding for the Melbourne. At the least, a final appearance would get Tim back into the Top 10.

Re: Henman chances to win Qatar?

By that logic you must surely think that Carlos Moya sucks all the joy out of tennis whenever he's on your TV, right?

Anyway, here's a smart little idea for you... watch his tennis, rather than his teeth. It can work wonders for your viewing pleasure sometimes.

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.

I think Tim has a great chance.

Re: Henman chances to win Qatar?

Sjengster. I never noticed Carlos Moya's teeth myself. I'm too distracted by his arms glistening in those cutoff sleeves.

Anyways, I'm rooting for Timbo to go all the way with this. Go Tim!

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Henman chances to win Qatar?

There's some pic somewhere of Moya where you can see the gap between his teeth really well, but I don't remember where.

No because Sebastien will stop him before

Re: Henman chances to win Qatar?

Grosjean, Henman, Escude, Ljubicic ... they all have good chances to win the tournament. My pick is actually for Nicholas, although it's a bit risky knowing him.

/ / / /
Djokovic.
\ \ \ \
Coric.
/ / / / /
Youzhny.
\ \ \ \
Del Potro.

Paire.

Ferrero.

Re: Henman chances to win Qatar?

Of course he is a chance, but it doesn' t mean he will win.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
