Tim Henman pulls out of NEW HAVEN due to stomach injury!

Great........just what he needed!

Lost 5 of his last 7 matches, has loads of points to defend in the US Open and he's got a stomach injury.

Unable to practise, wins matches, play competitively.

Get well soon, Tim!

Pulled out? I don't think he was entered in the first place. Probably just turned down a wildcard.

I'm in denial that this is his last season. I'd hoped he could at least repeat his successes of last year and maybe even go out in a blaze of glory. Not to be.

Exactly, it's not looking good for him at the moment, but maybe he can surprise us in a few weeks :)

Did he say how he got hurt?

He strained his stomach whilst playing Juan Ignacio Chela in Cincinatti R32 on Wednesday.

I do hope Tim can regian some sort of form (like in 2004) but I fear time is against him.

but I fear time is against him.

Tim was a late starter though! 1996 was his breakthrough year...........Agassi is still playing excellent tennis and he'd been a pro for 10 years by then?
