I want to see this chap in the semi's again

unless that means he has to beat Nadal or Coria, and maybe Fed, to get there :) I havent really gone through the draw to see all the possible matchups yet

Yeah, he is a very enjoyable player to watch on any surface, on clay in particular.. So ncie to see a player who actually plays a game on clay as opposite to all this topspin junkballing.. It's only the first day .. I am already sick of it.. :lol: I wish Henman had finished Pinocchio off in last year semis..

gotcha. i think the commentators made an error that i repeated bec they said "next up Chela". or maybe they were just predicting and i missed that. ;)

maybe they were meaning next match up.. chela v schuettler
as its just started and its 1 hell of a break-fest ... 2-2 in the first set without anyone holding ;)

He's a wonderful player with an unique, subtle style. Underestimated as well, I think. I hope he has once again a good run here.
I thought it was such a pity he did not make it to the final, this would have been so funny: the guy all the Brits want to play a Wimbledon final, plays the final in Paris.

of course he'd win easy when he's not on Brit Es

Had he been he would have tortured us for his usual 4 hours :rolleyes:

Luis Horna "the Bald Eagle" is next
go Luis, show him your eyebrows :devil:

He's great to watch. And he's a great sportsman.

Move over Baryshnikov! Henman's here. :dance:

I love watching Tim on clay -- hope he goes far again this year.

Henman is really enjoyable to watch on any surface. I saw a couple of matches of him on clay and he is playing well on it: sliding, slicing and volleying perfectly. His serve, when the 1st kicks in, is also effective.

I hope he goes at least to the QFs, I'd love to see Federer vs Henman as a QF match in Roland Garros.
