Let's have some fun! - Predict how long Henman will last against Coria?!!

Well this will go down a treat with the Argentine tennis fans! Anyway - members of the British press drew lots to predict how many games Rusedski would get off Verdasco, so i think it is time to predict how long Henman will last against Coria!

Why not predict how many games he will get as well...and if you are really bold, the number of sets he migh win! :)




By submitting this thread, i am not giving up on his chances of beating Coria...and no one can persuade me to!!! :)

Hey Escude! :wavey: Yeah that is good - but i wouldn't be surprised if Coria had springs fitted into his shoes to reach for the smashes! I'd say Henman is going to be smashed :lol: I just hope the poor man gets more than 2 games in each set cos as i said before, he is either going to win a close battle in 3 or 4 sets or he will be anniliated. No middle ground and no 5th set i don't think. :tears: Tim!!!!

Coria might come nervous, because let's face it, Henman has NOTHING to lose.

It might be an upset if it gets tights, but I doubt Henman will get that far. Hope he does.

Er I'm gunning for Coria and I don't like Henman but he'll put up something.

And playing at the net isn't going to be so easy, coria is fast. really fast.

off course its 99.9% likely for a coria win, but that little 0.1 % is what one must cling on too :), if tim can find ways to hold his serve alot, maybe try and frustrate coria, cos every1 has coria to win, all the pressure is on his little shoulders

plus did anyone notice the quickness of the chatrier court, looked speedy compared to the other court henman was on V Llodra
and if tim loses, so what ? means more time to recup for the Queens event on grass, cos if tim did make the french final, i doubt he'd play queens, thus jeopordising his wimbledon chances

Do you think he will play Queen's anyway? He will have to play at the latest Wednesday next week which is not a long break, considering how successful his clay season as a whole has been. I'm not sure whether he'd want to risk re-injuring his shoulder or anything. Besides, the Nottm people were reserving a WC for him in the hope that he would decide to go there this year. Maybe he will play Nottm instead? What do you guys think?

OK - don't like either of them much, though prefer Tim to Coria. I think lots of people have been doing Tim a great disservice though - he has got nothing to lose, - he has played and fought tremendously well in his previous RG matches (I was at a few of them last week), and he will mainly have the crowd on his side. I'm not predicting that he will win, but I think it could be closer than a lot of people think - Tim will take at least 1 set of the ghastly "El Mago" I think.

I think he'll definitely play Queen's. It's close to home for him, and he'd probably be practising there anyway. I guess if he lost early he might play in Nottingham, but I expect he'll do quite well at the Stella as usual. Doesn't take much for him to go from clay to grass really. Coria is the one who might have some difficulties with that IMO.

If right before RG started I would have told you all that Henman was gonna beat Coria in the semifinals, would have you believed it?
I don't think so.
Coria's too much (on clay) for him. Okay, he beated a few no ones and then reached QF and beated Chela (who's not a threat at all). But does that mean that he can beat Coria?
If Henman had beated.. I dunno, Moya maybe in the QF then I'd reconsider his possibilities of winning a bit more. But let's face it, he had an easy draw.

Umm anyway, the match'll probably last 1 hour and 40 minutes.. or a bit more but i'm not sure if it'll reach the 2 hours.

yes i think he'd definetely play Queens, cos they have the reputation as the best grass courts in the world (sampras, hewitt and those guys have all said this at some stage), perfect prep for Wimbledon, and tim never seems to play the week before a slam anymore

mind you if he got to the french final, then beat nalbandian in 5 sets, id settle for him to have a nice 2 week rest :):)

come on tim tomorrow! befuddle him! (as Mcenroe would say)

have you noticed in tim's best runs at queens seems to be the years he does best at wimbledon

finals queens- sf wimbledon
sf queens- qf wimbledon, all the years i remember tim doing poorly at queens, he's done "average" at wimby, like 2000.

Yeah - i have always thought that his performance at Queen's dictates exactly what he will do at Wimbledon and that is exactly why i think that when, and if, he wins Queen's he will win Wimbledon. It seems to be some sort of fate. :)
