Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

(There goes his undefeated season-sarcasm)

Congrats to Tim for obviously being the better player. Let's just hope that Richard through doubles and practice will improve his serve and gain more confidence.
Let's just hope Tim is getting his game back on track rather than just Richard playing horribly.

Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

His first match back after a long injury, against a veteran- BUT IT STILL SUCKS!!!

Three sets would have been nice. The long wait over the winter for such a short time on the court. He'll improve-he'd better!

Those Henman fans were rude!!
I guess since Henman (I dont think he has much charisma) has so few fans they have to be tougher

I am very disappointed... but congrats to Timmy. He played very well.

Richard seemed to lack of confidence in my opinion. He sometimes did bad choices and had some troubles to return Tim' serves. He made great winners as usual but Timmy was better on serve and at the volley.

linus- We are better fans. Kinder and gentler.

BTW, your avatar made me think-have you heard anything about Safin? I miss him!

Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

Well, let's hope that he gets a better draw in Sydney.

Hopefully, this loss will be beneficial to him and remind him of what he needs to work on. Marat lost 3 matches at the Hopman Cup last year.

I like Timmy, but not such a good loss...hopefully the confidence comes back with time and practice.

Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

Julie- Did Richard look fit? Healthy?
He didnt serve well? Do you think its mainly lack of match play-rust?

Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

More importantly, any signs of the injury?

Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

Yeah, that what I was thinking. Hopefully articles and reports will be out soon from the match.

I hope there isn't anything wrong with him.

Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

I hope he can bounce back next week so that he can take advantage of not having to defend any points as well as to fully prepare for the Oz open.

What frightens you?

“Nothing scares me. On second thought, I hate dentists. I fear dentists. You want to know how many cavities I have? Don’t embarrass me. Going to the dentist for me is worse than playing Fabrice Santoro.” - Marat Safin
