Hewitt beats Henman 6-3 3-6 6-2


hEnMaN

"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."
- John Lloyd

Dreadful umpiring and line calls.

Excellent week for Tim and he played some oustanding tennis...better than I've seen him play in years. If he keeps this up and stays fit, he can go far at Wimby if he gets a good draw. I hope he also continues his form into the rest of the year.

Well done Tim!

Re: Hewitt beats Henman 6-3 3-6 6-2

A bunch of terrible calls against Henman in that third set, it was evident that it was going to send him over the edge as per usual. He just can't shake off those external nuisances, it's a guaranteed meltdown whenever they get prevalent. A shame.

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'!

Re: Hewitt beats Henman 6-3 3-6 6-2

What a meltdown. I thought Tim had enough experience to not let that particular line call get to him.

Well done, Lleyton.

Re: Hewitt beats Henman 6-3 3-6 6-2

Unfortuneately bad line calls are just part of the game and happen all the time. I really like both Tim and Lleyton and they are good friends, but you would think by his age Time would have come to grips with human error.

Re: Hewitt beats Henman 6-3 3-6 6-2

Those linespeople and umpire where sleeping most of the time it seemed

But a fun match with some great points.

Nice tournie played, Tim

And yes, finally another final for Lleyton. Now don't lose this one Going more then a year without winning a title is long enough.
