Henman through - FEDex awaits ...

Tim Henman did it once again against Greg, but now it's FEDex who's next, anyone here believe he can do it ??

I think his chances are slim, but if he serves well and his volleys are there, he could push FEDex ... (yeah really ... )

Re: Henman through - FEDex awaits ...

I think Henman could push Federer, but not beat him, if he's in the right mind set.

At Wimbers, he walked onto that court a beaten man. I can't see this being any different sadly...

It's such a shame that Tim has to play Roger next. Anybody else and i would give him a chance! Tim played well

He will have chance definetly. He could take a set off off him, as the courts are much faster than wimbledon. Winning will be very difficult But who knows, Four guys in Toronto had a chance to beat him. His matches against Srichapan was very close before Murray beat him. So i'll be rooting for him.

Yeah that's absolutely true ... there's some indication that FEDex is vonurable ... though he's still the man to beat.

As for Henners, I think if Tim just holds his serve, he's got a chance @ a set, but even the match, but that would require some serious form

@ Wimbie I think Tim had too much in his head, maybe he thought; "grass is my best surface, I can do this", but just came up short ... and then some

As a Henman fan, I found it 2B a particularly tough loss ... I was disappointed in the actual numbers ...

Tim just needs 2 play freely, as much as possible ... and let his volleys do the talking.

GO TIM !!

Re: Henman through - FEDex awaits ...

Based on their recent matches, the h2h will get tied at 6-6.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Henman through - FEDex awaits ...

To make this match even more of a 'respectable defeat' compared to that Wimbledon match, id think Henman needs to try to get to the net at every chance...
if he plays Fed from the baseline again he'll again, be lucky to win 6 games.

looks like 2 men (Tursunov and Federer) will have taken care of Henman's year in the slams... his draws have been terrible.

Re: Henman through - FEDex awaits ...

Sadly, Henman will be unable to stay to his children 'I had a lead of 6-5 over Roger Federer'. He should drop out of the match before risking his h2h record

Re: Henman through - FEDex awaits ...

Roger's BH is on fire, and no doubt he'll take care to improve his FH/serve to his own standarts and then he'll be unbeatable Go Roger !

Slim is a word too much optimistic , his chances are non-existent .
