Re: The Grass Season is upon us!

Hi

I will be indeed attending both Wimbledon {mens finals and queueing on another day-not sure which yet} and Queens, can't wait. I went Queens on Saturday for qualies and it just made me all the more excited! Bring on the grass season!

Tim- here's your chance to truely shine!

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Re: The Grass Season is upon us!

The British press just won't leave their guy alone or give him a break, will they?

HAS HENMAN'S CHANCE PASSED HIM BY?

By Mark Staniforth, PA Sport

Henman Hill will soon be full of hope that this is the year for a British Wimbledon winner.

The fans' favourite's gallant charge to the last four of the French Open sparked renewed optimism among the painted-faced hordes that this time those semi-final heartaches will turn into final glory.

Henman's regeneration under his new coach Paul Annacone has been plain for all to see and even his second-round exit at Queen's hardly dampened the mood of optimism which seems to be sweeping around the All England Club.

But rather than Henman's untimely demise against Karol Beck it was two other results last week which left the likelihood that the nearly-man will miss out again.

For all Henman's undoubted improvement he remains some way off the grasscourt greatness soon to be bestowed upon Roger Federer and Andy Roddick.

The pair dominated Wimbledon last year until a semi-final clash sent a simply awesome Federer on the way to his first Grand Slam triumph.

Last week, Roddick and Federer swept to tournament victories at Queen's and Halle with an aplomb which marked them out ahead of their rivals.

Roddick's raw power and Federer's deft serve and volley game are set to create a grasscourt rivalry to match McEnroe and Borg and Becker and Edberg.

The temporary vacuum created by Pete Sampras' retirement has been filled by a pair who show all the signs of dominating well into the future.

It is likely to be to Henman's eternal regret that he could not convert his golden chance in the 2001 semi-final against Goran Ivanisevic.

The imperious Sampras had come to the end of his reign and the young guns led by Lleyton Hewitt had not quite made it to the top.

2001 was the void year just made for Henman. He blew his big chance and when he returned one year later he ran into Hewitt, who by then had matured into a champion of considerable pedigree.

Now Hewitt may have sunk but over the last 12 months Roddick and Federer have emerged to take a firm grip of the short grasscourt season.

Henman is a match for almost everybody on his favourite surface and another semi-final place is not only within his grasp but looking likely.

His problem will be what to do when faced by one of the top two seeds whose respective paths to the final look more assured than have anybody's since Sampras.

Only more heroics of the highest order will help Henman overcome one of the two main men who are set to rule on grass for years to come.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: The Grass Season is upon us!

I cant see how 'Henmans chance has passed him by' - hes the 6th best player in the World so there is absolutely no reason he cant win Wimbledon - hes probably inside the top 3 grass court players too!

Re: The Grass Season is upon us!

Phew! He got through Round One. I have to admit, I was worried after he lost the first set. I still believed in him, but I was majorly WORRIED! And so the annual Tim Henman emotional Wimbledon rollercoaster has begun! But it's one of those rides I just can't get enough of.
Good luck vs Heuberger, Tim. The H2H is 0-0.
I don't want to jinx Tim, so I won't comment on how I think the match SHOULD play out...

GO TIM!

Re: The Grass Season is upon us!

He's so close to winning, and yet so far away (that sounds really corny...). I just hope his games won't be huge cliffhangers anymore because I don't know how much mistreating my nails can stand now!

Re: The Grass Season is upon us!

Of all the matches playing tomorrow, Tim vs Ancic has me worried the most. I'm not familiar with Ancic much (I know he took out Federer at Wimby years ago) and Tim has been playing terrific but not as great as he can play. I hope he can put it all together tomorrow and dismiss Ancic with relative ease. I want him in the semis, if not the finals. Good luck Timmy!
