Timmy has just taken out the 1st set against Terrible Tursunov 7-5, after being down a break early, the plonking Pom fought his way back.

As much as I am happy that he won the 1st set...it seems to be delaying th inevitable. Tursunov seems too good right now. Hopefully I will be wrong though :scared:

henman should at least play wimbledon one more time, just for the fans as a show of appreciation and allow them to acknowledge his fine performances over the years

I'm at work and could only follow the match on live scoring :sad: Can anyone who saw the match tell me what happened in the 4th set? How did Tim lose that 5-1 lead :sad: Is he having back problems again or did Tursunov just play well? Poor Tim :bigcry:

Yeah so he can embarassed once again by losing in the first round, I hope he saves himself from the humiliation again!

I did think tim would pick it up this year, but it doesnt seem so :eek: Didnt think his 2006 would get any worse.

Rosie - Tursunov nailed winners pretty much everytime...Henman lost his confidence in the end because he couldn't pressure him without hitting an error.

Fact is, Tursunov is a bad match-up for Henman. Anyone who can nail passing winners doesn't give much hope. If he were less powerful then Tim would have stood far more chance, possibly even have won.

Most of the real tennis fans in Britain know that Henman performed amazingly well over years - reaching semis and quarter finals and somewhat "over-achieving" in relation to his ranking. I am not the greatest Henman fan - but I hope he comes back to Wimbledon - he would not be humilated - he is a credit to the game for his efforts and sportsmanship over the years.

That's a terrible result. 2 big losses to the same man who knocked him off his favourite slam last year. I hope there is still some tennis left for him.

Tim needed a good R1 draw and Tursunov was one of the worst possible of the unseeded players at any rate. Roger and Andy R didn't need the oppo they got :( :bigcry:

When Henman failed to win wimbledon 2004 - one of his best seasons as far as I know - I said here that he should retire. I was ridiculed by some here, but now it is clear that I felt good. Henman's days are over. I think we will witness that on this year's wimbledon.

If he can avoid some terrible draws then he is still capable of finishing the year top 20 provided that it is an injury / illness - free year.

No shame losing to Haas and Tursunov in their current form...at least they are on the up.

There are several seeds and many other unseeded R1 opponents that he could have defeated with relative ease.

I don't understand those of you who say Tim should retire. Dmitry Tursunov is a major talent and on his way up the rankings...don't be surprised to see him in the 15 in the world. No one on the tour wants to play him...

Tim lost but calling this a big upset is simply not true. I think Tim has more left in tank...

I seen the match so I could comment.

Henman wasn't allowed to play too good because Dima was dominating from the baseline, smacking forehand winners and passing him at the net.

Henman showed good touches at times but Dima returned his serve with ease, hence Henman struggling to hold serve almost all the time.

Certainly there's no way Henman can compete with power players anymore, they have his number. I honestly thought the winner of this match would take out Robredo, and I expect Dima to do that.

Dima :aparty:

Oh poor Tim :sad: :sad: I'm watching the match at the moment as I've been at school and taped it. Curiosity got the better of me though and i had to find out the score!

I can't help feeling extremely sorry and disappointed for tim but tursunov is a great talent and has a great forehand. I think Tim showed some great moments today so hopefully he'll be back for the french and more importantly wimbledon :)

Congrats Dmitry :)

During the match, the commentators seemed to imply that this may be the last time Tim will ever play in Australia, noting that his mother and father were in Melbourne to see him play.

The British media have failed to realise how great Tim has been for Britain, and tennis as a whole. He's had the horrible burden of singlehandedly carrying the hopes of one of the most over-critical nations in the world, and has done admirably. Look at the names that have stopped him in the semis at Wimbledon. Sampras, Agassi, Ivanesevic, Hewitt. How can you criticise a guy for losing to them?

Tim's always been one of my favourites, and I dearly hope he doesn't retire a loser. He's achieved too much, and has always been one of the nice guys on tour, apparently popular among the players.

In fact, I'd like him to declare next year as his last, so I can go all the way down to Melbourne to wish him well next year. :)
