    Henman wants to undercut his horrible defeat. Yes he got raped in front of a huge home crowd, but he says it was against the best that he's ever played against.

    Considering that Henman holds a winning record against Federer, this could be a very valid statement has Henman used to be better than Federer. He really has the benefit of seeing how Fed has evolved over the years and become a destructive force.

    Half time in Gelsenkirchen, so I can comment quickly...

    Henman really has played everybody since 1993.... from current heavyweights like Federer, Agassi, Nadal, and Hewitt, to past champions Sampras, Becker, Kuerten, Edberg, and Courier; so he's definitely in a good position to compare.

    I would've.. had beckham said that.. too bad, he didnt..

    I guess you should have some perspective here - I was just trying to point out that another guy who has played sampras before actually feels that fed is the best. given the slew of GOAT arguments flying in this board, just thought this might be an interesting comment for this board to analyze.

    Bunch of crap from Henman. Evidently Tim hasn't played Nadal...

    And as anyone knows, Borg was the GOAT when at the height of his game and could beat anyone on grass, hard, or clay for five straight years. Remember, Borg quit playing when he was 28...

    You fool. Henman has played Nadal twice before.

    Henman said that Federer was the best that he ever played against (meaning better than Sampras, Agassi, and Nadal). He never claimed that Federer is the GOAT. Have some perspective before you speak.

    what the fcuk do you know? who the hell have you ever played?
    Henman has played Nadal, Sampras, Agassi, etc, so he has about a billion times more perspective on this than you ever will, so just except it, fool.

    They are close friends. Henman even gave Federer a ride in a private jet. Last year Federer listed Henman as a top contender for Wimbledon. They are just being nice to each other.

    Henman's done; he had his chances through the years - but his genes have run him out.
