Too bad for Timmy...he should have closed it out

I like Guille too though

Headlines should reach:
Big phat loser Henman wins c0bra a fortune

I didn't expect it to be quite this close though. But I did say Canas beating Henman was the bet of the day for the punters among us. I'm pretty stoked. Thanks timid Timothy.

Re: Henman chokes again..... whats the Brit press gonna come up with now

last night on BBC radio they were talking of Tim as maybe winner of Aus Open

saying IF he could get past r3 and somehow beat Nalbandian ...... and go on and beat Hewitt/Federer in QF and go all the way

he would be a worthy champ................. NOT

Face it boys ......... once a choker always a choker
he wins ONE round and they start talking about him winning the whole tourn

Re: Henman chokes again..... whats the Brit press gonna come up with now

Wow, nice to see that Canas is back! I haven´t seen anything of the match, but I think it´s no shame for Henman to loose a close battle against such a big fighter as Canas is.

It was certainly a superb match - Guillermo fought and fought and never gave up - and Tim - well, Tim choked - again. I did feel so sorry for him though - I'm not a Tim fan at all, but he looked so drawn and sad at the end - even the British commentators were saying "he hasn't got it in him to win a Grand Slam" - and I guess he probably knows that deep down too. Good to see Canas back after all his problems though.

Re: Henman chokes again..... whats the Brit press gonna come up with now

All I can say is there's no shame in never winning a grand slam. That doesn't mean he failed as a tennisplayer. A GS is a great achievement but by no means expected. Being a top 10 player is pretty darn cool as well. I don't expect Seb to win a GS either. As Rosie said, some just don't have it in them. Fair enough.

**************************

Allez to the French gents and a big up to Tim! Further shouts out to Goran, Mr. Sampras and my two favourite former-players-turned-commentators: Johnny Mac and Boris!

Re: Henman chokes again..... whats the Brit press gonna come up with now

we know its no shame but the Brit Press seems to think whenever he wins a match he's the best player in the world and whenever he loses he's a complete useless piece of ****.

Plus Tim keeps on saying he's gonna win one.
apart from getting FIXED draws at Wimbledon due to giving him a good seed, he's done nothing.
