Who will win? I think Canas will, after that Henman's loss to Hernych i don't believe he can beat Canas.

Canas lost to Waske and Moya last week as well. He beat Federer but we all know Fed was injured.

Henman to win in 3. :worship:

Canas is 5-1 against Henman, but they've had some close matches. Still I guess Henman has lost more game than Canas since they last played.

Guillermo in 2.

I think Canas had a winning record against Henman-something like 5-1?

Henman should have won at both the French and Australian open.

He was dominating and Canas seemed done......until he mysteriously got a new wind of breath............Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Without drugs, Henman wins.

Henman as usual choked, when he needed to be at his best, old poor Jaapie keep up with the excuses.

In my opinion Canas will spank Henman, as after his injuries I don't think Henman had enough fitness to beat a guy like Canas, who moves so well and gets so many shots back in court.

Jaap - we don't "all know Fed was injured" we know he had a couple of blisters which the Fedster himself said was nothing to do with why he lost the match..according to his press conference which took place after Fed had completed his doubles match. He didn't play anything like his best tennis and definitely had a rare and uncharacteristic blip, but he wasn't injured. If Fed and Canas get a rematch this week in Miami I pity poor Canas as Fed will want to thrash him!!!

You know, I knew Canas was on the pills after that match against Henman at the Aus open. After the 4th set, he seemed dead. The suddenly he is running down everything again.

Without them, it won't be as easy to beat Henman.

I was at the match and Cañas never losing even with Henman up 4-1 0-30 on Cañas's serve after he served a fault and served a 120km/h 2nd serve in the 5th set.

In other words you are continually talking out of your arse. Blisters are an injury come on, you can do better than that, stick to backing the 1.01 favourites.

Canas is a revolting match for Henman, unfortunately. Poor Tim is likely to get soundly beaten :sobbing:

Guillermo Cañas (ARG) Versus Tim Hneman (GBR)

1998 Canadian Open 32 Hard (O) Henman 3-6 7-6 6-2


The first time when I saw Cañas in action :) At that time he had as long hair as today and was leading 6-3 5:2. Later was 5:4 up in the tie-break.

I read once on Internet that Cañas wasted 9 match points in Santiago 1998 against M.Rodriguez.

canas is superior from the back and henman doesnt come to the net nearly enough anymore to disrupt him

Oh my - poor Tom :sad: What a bad match-up for him. I'm pretty sure Cañas will win quite easily, and though I like Cañas normally, I do hope I'm wrong because Tim needs some confidence right now.

Yes, but the most memorable choke was against Maurice Ruah, from Venezuela in 1999 Davis Cup, to stay in the American Group 1.

He was 6-3 6-3 5-0, but lost the third set in the tie break and then 3-6 3-6.

Other chokes:

In 1998 against Fabrice Santoro in Key Biscayne, Francisco Clavet in Wimbledon and Sandon Stolle in Australia.

He just melted under pressure. But luckily those days are over.

Im sad that Henman vs Canas so early, couple of my favourite players. Think it would do tim more good to win than Canas though.

When your luck is out, it is really out ehh Tim.
well, im not giving it to Canas yet.... Timbo might spring a surprise, he sometimes is better in a position of the underdog.


Oh my - poor Tom :sad:Tom? :p

Had he match points in those matches against Ruah, Santoro & Clavet?
Indeed, his choke against Ruah was like a mega-choke!!! :o

Looks like Henman is having another meltdown after winning the first and being up a break in the second. Now he is a break down in the third.
