Henman looks stressed out - Has 28 (!) Unforced errors and 7 DFs in first two sets (and only two aces)

Henman can't seem to break Jarkko...he had his chances

Johnny Mac trying to be tactfull, but his thoughts are quite clear about Tim

Andrew Murray will be happy...he will get all the attention...or maybe it's not so good, you know how cruel the Brit press can be!

Henman won 3rd set and playing better.

Even Johnny Mac says he has a chance to win the game now ;)

2 sets all now. Tim has more grit than I thought

Yes, I guess he has to have his back against the wall to produce some good tennis

Jarkko seems tired and frustrated now.

Henman leads and serves at 2-0

a bit premature celebration by the anti-Henman camp. I'm not a huge Henman fan (truth be told I hate the way the British tennis broadcast is subverted to Henman) but I do appreciate his S&V game and how he makes the most of his limited talents. a first round loss would be a little too cruel from the gods.. after all he's got to lose in the semis! :).

I think Henman's chances of beating Roddick to make the semis are somewhere near 0%

Popp/Arthurs is difficult enough.

Come on Tim, Nieminen has been on my sh*t list ever since he took out Andre at the French.

Come on Jarkko! it ain't ovah baybay!

he will probably lose in the next round and yeah his chances to win wimbledon or beating Roddick is pretty close to ZERO

what's so mad about those stats? Henman played like crap in the first two sets. and now he's playing just about as well as he needs to to beat Jarkko.

Scotso

Jarkko gave up.

Nice job man.

Five weeks on clay to come.

A good win for Tim but Jarkko choked.
Jarkko should've won that match in straights, 4 sets max.
Tim won't win Wimby, but I admired his guts and determination to fight from 2 sets down to win in 5.

So many people are dissapointed that tim won :D as they say "he will continue to torture the bbc viewers". Tim is gonna drop so badly in the rankings i think, he has a bad year (and i can only see him losing points here, and losing loads of points at the usopen).

Nice to see the Henman vultures denied for the time being, though I have nothing whatsoever against the Shark and he certainly deserved to win. Henman needs to improve his form roughly 1000% to stand a chance of making the second week, let alone beating Roddick in the quarters, but the best thing is he's given himself a chance and he can only play better than he did today.
