Me too, I want in I actually saw Tim return to action in Rotterdam, that was cool. That he lost less so But I really dig Tim, he's the man. I saw a pic of him with little Rose in some british mag, very cute!
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!
It's time for a little bump to this thread, I think.
Any more closet Tim fans out there that wish to join us and celebrate his continued run of form, now that he is on the cusp of returning to the top 10?
To join the select band, of course, Tim still has to beat Ivan Ljubicic tomorrow in Doha. They have only ever played in Rotterdam, in 2002 and 2003, with results split and the Croat winning the last one. (Tim was only just returning from injury though.)
Any thoughts on how it might go? Provided he can handle the Ljubicic serve, I think Henman might have an edge. Still will be nervous watching that livescore though.
"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."
