Ho ho ho, this trhread looks so quiet.

And I think I know why.

Because so many people thought Henman has no chance at all, and speaking things like 'Tim will have to play ten times better then against Chella' and '
Coria in three' and so on.

I was one of the rares who reffered to the fact that Henman already did beat Coria on clay. Some said 'but Coria is better now'. The lesson is - tradition is tradition, and if one is tough for you know, he will more or less stay tough in the future. Tradition means so much, never underestimate the results from the past.

Coria wasn't favorite at all. He went through the eye of a needle. This could have easily be a Henman destroy show. Tim missed just a little in the second set to make just that of this match. Remember that Coria never came for 2 sets down.

So congratulations Tim, I'm so glad you prooved some things!

Now I'm eager to see how will Coria do against Gaudio in finals - although I think Coria will win as expected.

Sorry litlle duck........Coria WAS favourite.........look at the bets, on the internet........it was something like this: coria payed 1.15 to the winner and Henman 2.50 or 2.60

Thats a favourtie!!!!!!
Even Mc Enroe said that Henman did not stand a chance!!!!!!!

I admit that, for a second there, i tohught coria was going down........but was just a second.............finally the BEST won

You can do it!!! Just dun be too nervous like today at the start okay? Never ever give up!!! Even when you're down...it's never over till the last point is played!!!! :bounce:

On the other side, no shame in losing today's match, Tim... he fought with all his best...but some shots just din go his way... but great performance and hopefully you can take wimbledon!!! All the best!!! :bounce:

Sure Coria was favourite......you´re talkin about stats.....he was 2-1 (now he wants to join nalby and cañas in the "own timmy club")
and then i hear destroy show....and then i remember timmy got a bagel!!!

I think in a way it was kind of okay that Henman lost though it is real sad for him. It would have been even more devastating for Coria to have lost because of all the expectations on him now to win it since people like Moya, Federer and Nalbandian are out. It is a shame for Tim to have lost, but he really gave it all he had and should be proud of himself having gotten this far.

Henman totally outplayed Coria for about a set and a half. There was nothing Coria could do about it. He was frustrated by Tim's play and made some more errors of his own. Then Henman's level dropped, and that was enough for Coria to sneak out the 2nd set and gain loads of confidence. It was a tough well fought match.

Little duck, what are you talking about? Coria was clearly the favorite going into the match.I am quite suprise that Henmen took a set off Coria.I think that Coria wasn't playing his best tennis today, but he knew when to raise his game like most champion.He seem nervous today though.

Anyone else who found this match very similar to Ferrero's match against Henman last year? Both times Henman won the first set and seemed to dominate play, but as soon as he missed a couple of volleys the momentum swung completely. I think Coria and Ferrero both needed a bit of time to adjust to Henman's style, while Henman's "attacking" play is mostly effective during the first sets when the energy level is still high(and the serves are harder). What Coria smartly did (and Chela didn't) was making Henman hit the volley more times than he actually wanted, allways preparing himself to run to the ball after he made the passing shot. Henman was bound to start missing some at one point and when that happened Coria was ready to fight back.

Henman seemed to go to the net less and less during the course of the match, fatigue played a major part I think. Also notice how the adrenaline and the last gasp effort got Henman back into the game in the 4th set(crowd helped a lot too), but as soon as that started to fade it was all over.

Yes, it was a case of a good first set where his opponent was still nervous and he did a good job of taking them out of their rhythm, but just couldn't sustain it. As I said elsewhere, the 13-game streak in the middle ultimately showed why Coria will become a clay-court great and Henman won't, he barely missed a ball (4 unforced errors in the last two sets) and ran down every single volley Henman made.

I think Henman choked. He was up 4-2 in the second, serving at 40-30 for a 5-2 lead!

Also, in the fourth, up 5-3!

He SHOULD have won this!

I'm so happy for Coria!! :yippee:

I knew that Henman was dangerous for Guille and that Henman stood a chance of winning if Henman's game was on and Guille was nervous and tenative.

Henman is a tremendous guy. He comes endorsed by Todd Martin who I also admire. Todd says that Tim is the best fellow he knows. I've gained a great deal of admiration for Tim's character during this tournament. I wish him all the best during the grass season.

:( :sad: This was Tim's match, and everyone who saw the match knows it. He totally outplayed Coria for the 1st set and most of the 2nd, up 4-2 Until...... he goes down break point, he has the point won on break point, and he sends a simple volley into the open court wide, and loses 12 more games in a row.:( THAT missed volley on break point down was the TURNING POINT of the match. Had he made it Henman would of most assuuredly held serve, taken the second set, and be up 2 sets to none: 6-3, 6-4. No way Coria will come back than. Henman simply couldent get it together after that, even though in several games, he went deep into(including Corias next serve game, up 15-30). He had Coria on his heels for those 2 1st 2 sets, hitting many crisp big forehands, great volleys, and solid movement. From then on Henman's play dropped signifagantly, making so many UE's, and mentally folded, collapsed. It was the same in the 4th. Down 0-3(lost 13 straight games) wins 5 games in a row, and gains some of his stellar form of the 1st 2 sets, using the big forehand etc. But again up 5-3, and couldent serve it out at 5-4!! :mad: Henman should of won the 4th, atleast. Thing is Coria knew how lucky he was. Henman should of taken the 'king' to 5, and REALLY could've destroyed him in straights. But it all comes down to that missed volley down break pt, in the 2nd, up 4-2. After that(until later in the 4th) Henman's forehand deserted him, not attacking the volleys like he did, just guiding them lazily, no consistency with either serve or groundstrokes. This WAS a serious CHOKE by Henman. :mad: After he missed that Volley he let it stick in side his head, and couldnt stop thinking of a missed oppurtunity to go up 5-2 in the second. :rolleyes: From then on, Henman didnt do anything right, and Coria raised his game. Well, maybe this is Tim's year at Wimbledon. It does hurt, because he really could've beaten him today, and in straights. I'm also thinking, that they should let the players have a brief timeout with their coach during the match, because if Annacone could've talked to tim for a minute or two, he would've gotten Tim's head straight, and not let that 3rd set disaster happen, or for the momentem to slip in their opponents favour. Its allowed in other sports, just not Tennis. :(

Tim played like gold for a set and half. Unfortunately, his serve and volley weapon did'nt worked this time.

Hey well done to Tim, the only one to take a set off him and probably looked a good bet to beat him. If only hed closed the second set out, and the fourth, then things could have looked so different. But hey he didnt, but Tim has nothing to be ashamed of, not even the great serve and volleyers made the RG final, Pete, Rafter, they never made it.

Tim has proved that he can now be a danger on any surface no matter what. So hats off to Tim, he lost to the best claycourter in the world, and could have beaten him had a couple of things not gone his way. Tim for wimbly then!!!

It's always amusing to read why the person who lost is the person who should be the winner. :rolleyes:

Yes, Haasfan, Tim has a lot to be proud of at this tournament. I'm a little surprised in reading Tim's recent press conferences. He's blowing his own horn more than I've ever seen him do. Perhaps that is Annacone's influence to get him to say positive things about himself out loud. I sort of was shocked by his comments after his loss yesterday. I guess, he should have been proud of the way he played, but I was surprised he said something disparaging about his opponent.

The only comment I saw which could at all fit was that he made Coria look "pretty ordinary", but in that comment he also called Coria "the best clay court player in the world" so I don't see the grounds for complaint.

He certainly is talking his game up more than he used to, but he's also playing better so perhaps it's fair. Though there is a fine line between being confident and positive and seeming arrogant, which perhaps explains all the you knows in tennis player's interviews.

I'm not complaining. I was surprised, that's all. Maybe one of the reason Tim is playing so well is that he is being much more positive about himself.

Rewatched the Coria-Henman match today after the (dreadfully dull) women's final on NBC. It was great to hear Johnny Mac's comments about Henman and Coria's game, I wish he was still in the US. I think this match is probably one of my favorites of the tournament. Such a great contrast of styles and culture, great crowd for once, it was exciting to watch. :dance:

And as for Tim blowing his own horn, well it's about time! :lol: He did, for one glorious set, make Coria look quite ordinary. ;)

yeah i really enjoyed this match, was a good atmosphere there. the other semi didnt have an atmosphere. but this was a very enjoyable match. i thought tim started to come into the net to much, and got passed at every chance. for the first set and abit, he was hitting with coria and managing to stay with him, and then coming in with the good chance, he then came into much and got passed to often. he stopped it during the 4th set tho, and got a better result
