Even though Im English (not very patriotic I should add :lol: ) Im not really a fan of Henman but I don't think it was such a disgraceful loss. It's such a disadvantage having a bye and Melzer took advantage. He's won his last 6 against some good opponents and would have gone into the match full of confidence and nothing to lose. Henman on the other hand seems to sway from over-confidence to a lack of confidence very quickly and he always seems vunerable in the first couple of rounds. But they are a lot of players this is true of. Good win for Melzer.

Oh but they can and they will - deep down you KNOW they will :devil: And no doubt interractive coverage will find a recording of "our Tim" playing in Indian Wells last week instead of showing an outside court match on Monday evening.

This is so typical from Henman, as soon as people actually expect him to do something, he falls flat on his butt

Tims fragile service holding got him in trouble again.

Tims game is like a vindaloo curry....hot one minute then followed by the shits days after.

* Tim lost confidence because Federer beat him so easily in IW Final; once again Henman came to the realisation that he's a good player but when it really counts his best ain't good enough to beat the best.
-->> Tim's record in Finals now stands at 11/16... & most of the Finals he won were against lesser players; I can only recall him beating a big name in a Final maybe once~ didn't he beat Agassi a few years ago in the Swiss Indoor Final??
...Tim Losing 1st Round in Miami is the direct result of him losing to Roger in IW Final in my opinion. It takes such a huge effort to get to those finals, so when you lose them you also lose motivation for the next tournament(normally unless you're a freak like Agassi).

if you're a top player, such as Tim, losing big finals shouldn't dampen your next result. Nalbandian played like utter crap in the Montreal final, then got to the quarters (i thinkg) of Cincy beating Federer along the way. Henman's loss imo wasn't linked towards his bad loss to Roger, it was because Melzer played well. i don't think is known for consistency lately, week to week, not just in our tournament i mean

Pffft! :mad: at the upset but not really THAT surprised. In his website Tim has mentioned that he's "weary" of Melzer because Jurgen just came off a win at Boca Raton beating Enqvist and Todd Martin en route to the title. He said Jurgen would be more accustomed to the weather in Miami which is quite different from the one at Indian Wells. But still - no excuses.

:worship: Melzer.

Not too totally shocking given Jurgen's wins over Thomas and Todd (context of it all). Too bad for Timmy though.
