Henman pulls out of 4th tournament this year

Henman!
His knee gets better and now he's got the flu!

Flu floors Henman

Tim Henman has been forced to withdraw from the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam next week after contracting flu.

The British number two has been confined to his bed for most of the week suffering with a temperature and a sore throat, which has left him feeling very frustrated.
“It’s been a rough week so far,” explained Henman, who is yet to play a competitive match in 2007.

“My knee was progressing nicely and I was enjoying myself in practice, and I was just starting to think about competing next week when I started to get a sore throat.

“The next thing I knew I started feeling lousy, my temperature went way up and I was spending most of my time in a cold sweat.

“So I obviously wasn’t able to practice or train and I’ve spent most of the week in bed.

“Hopefully by next week I’ll be over the worst of it but obviously it’s going to be impossible to play in Rotterdam so I’ve had to pull out.

“Frustrating isn’t the word but I’ve just got to accept it, deal with it, and move on. But it’s certainly not the start to the year I was looking for.”

Just hope he doesn't miss any more and comes back in Top 20 form
A WC for Dubai maybe if he's fit?

I was expecting him to withdraw...but not with flu

Get better / fitter soon Tim...come on!!!

He'd be an idiot not to try playing Dubai...even if he has never done that well there in the past, and will probably draw Federer / Nadal

Henman's that unlucky, he's probably got the H5N1 Avian flu. First known case in England!

With the good people.

MANCHESTER UNITED TREBLE WINNERS 1998-99.
PREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS 2006-7. Take that, John Terry!

That's gonna hurt - Rotterdam was one of the few early tourneys where he had ranking points - SF points IIRC

Re: Henman pulls out of 4th tournament this year

My bad - I was thinking of Zagreb and they already came off.

And then he made QF in Dubai, lost to Nadal

IIRC = If I Recall Correctly.

Clearly I didn't

I know exactly how Tim feels..... I've been down with flu all week.
Looking forward to seeing him in action soon hopefully.

He has the ability to do it (went 8/1 vs 11-20 last year), but I have a horrible feeling that this setback will prevent him from doing it now.

Gimme that fucking racket, Tim, while you are dealing with the flu. I'll beat all these bastards who owe you a win
