Rotterdam: Henman def. Johansson 6-4, 6-4

Impressive stuff, considering there was a doubt he would even be able to play - not a breakpoint faced in the second set, solid serving and good aggression off the second shot. Tojo did look down on himself as he so often is when he's losing, but still a quality performance. Nice to see such a good reception from the crowd at the end too, perhaps he's more appreciated here with so many other big names having pulled out.

Tim made no mistake in closing it out. All first serves in.

Looked very confident unlike ToJo who was talking to himself in Swedish during the final game.

Tojo is a big whinger, that's why I find it funny when people slate him as a "robotic" Grand Slam winner. I almost thought he was on the verge of being defaulted against Dent at Nottingham last year, and he ended up effectively defaulting himself with one of those awkward injuries that's brought on by too many bad calls.

ToJo robotic? He's a very emotional Swede, unlike the IceMan.

Well done, Tim, old bean! ;)

congrats Timbo, didnt expect that ..
but as usual, lets wait and see how the back/wherever is injured lately reacts overnight..
a run of matches for Henman, that's when the problems begin.

Tim does like Rotterdam. It's nice to see him putting a run of sorts together. One last hurrah Timmy this year at Wimby please so we can have headlines like "Pretender Has To Wait -The King Is Still Alive!" :)

Yes, but I fear we already had the "Le Roi est Mort, Vive le Roi!" headlines on the first Thursday of last year's Wimbledon.

Tim should lose in r1 at wimbledon or Win? this year.. my theory :)
All his results since debut in 1994:
1st-2nd-QF-QF-SF-SF- 4th -SF-SF-QF-QF-2nd- (2006)
see? almost complete.

should also lose in r1 at Roland Garros, so his 100th career GS match win would be the Wimbers final (93 wins so far)
:p

Shouldn't be a problem :p

Or even go one better and get Roddick. I think Tiger Tim could probably bagel Roddick on clay.

I thought he would be beaten by this scoreline so I am very impressed! Well done Tim...just proves to everyone and himself that he can play really well...it is just the back that prevents him being top 20 again :(

The live stream worked for this match and the quality of the stream was really good (at least for me).
