Tim Henman just said 'Bullshit' (to the umpire)

after Hewitt signalled to the line judge that the ball was out so he called it out. Then Hawkeye confirmed that it was in

"It really annoys me when I hear the criticism that Tim has to suffer.

"He was No 4 in the world but could anybody really say that David Beckham or Gary Lineker or Michael Owen were ever the No 4 footballer in the world? They were not.

"Outside the tennis world, Tim has never received the credit he deserves. His record at Wimbledon is amazing - four semi-finals there, plus two others.

"But it seems that if Tim Henman doesn't win Wimbledon, he is a failure. Well, he is not a failure in my book. He is a supremely talented, supremely successful tennis player. We are lucky to have him."

Re: Tim Henman just said 'Bullshit' (to the umpire)

Jesus Christ, there has been a number of mind-numbingly terrible calls against Henman in this set, infuriating.

Well, barbeque my hamhocks! Your half is gone! Now don't - I say - don't give me no lip, son. You've gotta stick by your bargain. I'd do the same! ....... Well, hog gravy and chitlins! MY half is gone! I-I-I know what you're gonna say son. When two halves is gone there's nuthin' left - and you're right. It's a little ol' worm who wasn't there. Two nuthins is nuthin'. That's mathematics son. You can argue with me but you can't argue with figures. Two half nuthins is a whole nuthin'!

You'd expect the line judges to be sympathetic with the Brit, but they are totally against him!

Re: Tim Henman just said 'Bullshit' (to the umpire)

Henman just had a chat with the supervisor. It's understandable that he's frustrated, he's been cheated time and time again in this set. Just hope he doesn't lose it completely 'cause of this, it'd be a typical Henman-meltdown in that case.

Disappointing climax to the match...the line call shattered his concentration
