Henman spanks Ancic 6/2 6/2

Total masterclass :eek:

Yeah, Ancic might have been feeling tired from this morning...but Tim played too, and he is 10 years older :lol:

With this win, Tim should return to the top 50 at approx. 50, and a win over Lee in the SF (a difficult match) would ensure that he won't drop out of the top 45 by the year-end.

Hopefully Tim can continue to inch his way to an AO seeding :bounce:

Congrats man! :yeah: :woohoo: :bounce: :smoke: :eek:

Awesome Tim, seems to be playing some of his best tennis in years at the moment.

Hopefully this might shutup the Croats for a while :dance:

Wow, acording to the stats Tim was serving at 84%!

Well done Tim!!!!! Hopefully we can get a Tim vs Fed final. Their H2H needs sorting (back in Tim's favour).

Bad luck Mario, I like him a lot too. Hope he manages to make Shanghai.

Finally! Now I hope that Tim will get his confidence back, as in last week against Srichaphan it was only problems with his confidence.
Hope to see him back in at least top 20 where he actually belongs. :)

I really hope so.

Surely Sky Sports Extra should be showing him as they were showing him last week.

An excellent effort by Tim. Very good comeback after the disappointment of the Schrichapan match.:hatoff: :woohoo:

Clearly the power of the blog... it is Roger's, but Tim has appeared in so many pictures that he must feel like he is a part of it already! :)

He should be the next guy to do the blog, in my humble opinion...

Great win Tim! Murray last week (even after his Davis Cup exploits) and now Ancic is showing Tim's on his way back up the rankings.

Finish the job against Lee :yeah:

I just hope Roger doesn't influence Tim into having a sake bomber...Tim seems to follow Roger around like a bad smell :help:

Good stuff I wasn't expecting this result! :D

A Federer-Henman final would be great. :) But of course both Roger and Tim have their work cut out for them in their respective smifinals so nothing is a given.

You beat me to it.
But I'm disappointed by the scoreline. Atfer Robredo lost in the QFs, the LEAST Ancic should've done was make the semis. He needs the points BADLY to make it to Shanghai.

I'd love a Tim blog - maybe Roger would stalk him through photos then!

thank you tim! Just make to the final, and the least you can do is make federer feel bad about beating you.

:bigclap: Well done Tim.

And the best part is his matches were played outdoors. ;)

If Fed and Henman meet in the final that is as good a shot as Henman can have at Federer right now, on this kind of surface.

Things are getting to the point where Robredo is a favorite to play in the MC. There must be something really wrong in the world.

after that stupid sailing trip Mario is out form:sad: there is no excuse this time Mario was bad, bad, bad and again bad, it's really dissapointing that Ancic couldn't beat a elderly Henman

CHOKER!!!!

I don't think you can choke when you only win 4 games in the match :lol:

Lee
10-06-2006, 06:22 PM
Congrat Henman! :yeah:

I understand both played 2 matches in one day but Henman's match is before Ancic's and Ancic had a tougher 3 sets vs Schuettler. Plus Ancic returns from a long layoff because of injury.

hopefully he'll beat Lee now... 3-0 v him and all easy.

but its Tim :scared:

With this win, Tim should return to the top 50 at approx. 50, and a win over Lee in the SF (a difficult match) would ensure that he won't drop out of the top 45 by the year-end. Nah... i calculated he's gained 85 entry points so far for reaching the semis (110 minus his 25 B18th)
so he has 770 and is up around 47th :) with a chance to get inside the top40 if he beats Lee.

Congrats Tim and good luck in the semis. :) Glad to see that he is in the top 50 again with this.

:woohoo:

Great win from Tim.

I don't know why he doesn't get his arse to the Paris and Madrid qualifiers. Try at least one of them because he can easily have a good run at one of those tournys and move right up the ranking. He didn't try and qualify for a couple of the clay masters qualies as well.

well i'll wont bash him right now anyway as he's doing some good for once... but when ya lose Tim, its open season on you again son :devil:

Ancic is a total sham in every department of the game.
Good to see a mediocre player bring him down to Earth. Atleast HE has a tiny bit of talent.
