If this were a thread made at wtaworld, it would have been moved in a matter of minutes, but oh well this is mtf. This is classic henman stinking up a great shot of possibly going all the way here.

Croatia will love this man, the new Goran !, he has been sublime and I'm in shock the way he has pulled Henman to shreds !

I'm really impressed with Ancic. So calm and composed on court and he really played so well whereas Tim looks just as "dead" as he can be...

Unless there's gonna be a rain now or some miracle, Tim really is done and done.

I think Tim and the crowd took this match for granted
They were much louder in the Mark P match

Maybe JMac does have a point after all.

Neither the crowd nor Tim is helping each other to create any atmosphere out there today, they just look as dead.

This is where I say 'damn you Tim for beating Mark, only to be thrashed in the next match by an unseeded player'

Ah well- getting served off the court by a giant Croatian is nothing new at Wimbledon. Unfortunately, it's getting late for Tim. Better luck next year, Mr. Henman!

Poor Tim. He may need to seek political asylum now. :eek:

Dont want to sound a smartass after the event and easy to criticise in hindsight but Henman didn't change tactics at all !!! he was playing someone eager to get to net fast as his legs would get him there and just took him on head to head and didnt try any variety when he was getting outplayed, it clearly wasn't working but Henman continued to go with it even at 2 sets down.

Well played Ancic though, great display and good luck in semis :bigclap:

Can't wait to see the delayed broadcast on NBC.

I can hear it opening now, "shocker on Centre Court, Mario Ancic of Croatia just went up two sets against Britain's Tim Henman..."

You know, I just think Tim and Amelie have too much pressure to win their home tournaments. They play great until the latter stages then throw in a turd...

BTW, did he play baseline or s&v?

Croatia has much to be proud of: Goran goes out in style, Sprem spanks Venus as part of her glorious run, and now Ancic makes the Farmer look like a Junior. the parties in Split must be huge. ;)

"Why does Tim always play his best tennis when no-one cares?"

question just sent in to the BBC commentators. y'all should heard them fumble all over the reply. :devil:
