Here We Go: The Championships 2005

The Wimbledon main draw has been released and Tim is seeded 6th. He's on the bottom half of the draw with Roddick and there are no real threats until the round of 16 (potentially against Grosjean). Tim has reached the Quarterfinals the past two years and has a good chance of surpassing that round this year.

But first: Jarkko Nieminen. This will be their first meeting. Jarkko hasn't played a grass court tournament in a while because of injuries, etc. so Tim should win this match.

Goodluck Tim!

And so begins the annual rollercoaster. Hold tight, everyone.

Good luck, Tim. Make it TIMBLEDON this year, please?

Good work coming back from 2 sets down!

Next up: Dmitry Tursunov. He is the guy who took out Marat Safin in the 1st round last year. This will be their first meeting.

Goodluck Tim!

What a heartbreak, such a pain to watch. Tim should take Mary Carillo's advice and avoid ALL newspapers and newscasts for the next couple of weeks. I hope he recovers well.

...And great job, Dmitry!

Re: Here We Go: The Championships 2005

what´s the matter with Tim? he does not play any more so uncompromisingly his play and looks cramped and insecure.

Re: Here We Go: The Championships 2005

Well, offering my opinion, though I'm sure no one wants it.

1) Tim seemed really uncomfortable going into Wimbledon. He was complaining about everything. Pulling a Hewitt as I call it. During the match, he started complaining about the ball kids. I don't think that he ever really felt comfortable at Wimbledon this year.

2) He played poorly and inconsistently.

But I have no doubt in Tim. I do believe that he'll win Wimbledon. (With Justine no less), and that he'll be back. No one said destiny was ever easy.

I am still thinking he'll do a Virginia Wade...on his 33rd birthday...but then, I also thought Anna K would win Wimby one day, lol. And now, I'll never root against Roger. But I wish Tim well...
