Oh my God, 6 years of defeats to Hewitt and he finally does it 7-6 6-3!!
Well done Timbo
he's 1-8 now !!!
still 7 to come back at 8-8
Congrats to Tim.WTF is wrong with Hewitt is the bigger question, this guy's game has fallen on hard times, yes he has been to some finals but he has grinded out these matches.
yes i fotgot to congratulate tim
great winS !
safin + hewitt, both in straight sets... at least in the next round, he won't face another former n°1 !
i cannot believe it wtf is happening with hewitt i didnt see the match because its not showing it here in england. i support hewitt btw not henman. but sometimes henman beats the big players then loses in the next rounds or so against players he should beat
Well it's Hrbaty next.....I think that'll be tough, but the way things are going, who knows?
Then it's Roddick (providing Roddick can beat Alberto Martin tonight). Now there's a match I'd like to see: Henman v Roddick 2006
I have the feeling it would be the same result as Henman vs Hewitt 2006...
I still think this surface will hurt Roddick, i dont have him in the semis.
It is great to see Henman win.
Long live Serve and Volley!!!
Well he won Nasdaq here back in 2004.
Nasdaq Final 2004
I was at the Nasdaq 100 and saw the final in 2004 where Roddick won. Coria was looking very good and, IMHO, appeared to be taking the match. He injured his back during play, I think it was on a return of serve. He retired from the match.
Great win for Tim, this may keep him in a game a little longer, especially if he can get through next round (Greul may actually beat Hrbaty, Dominic is down a set already). Roddick of today is no Roddick of 2004, he has no confidence, his choice of shots is erratic, his camp is full of leeches. Not that Tim is shiny, but if he gets on a streak...a-la French Open where he got to the semis...why not?
Thanks Timmy! Watch out for Simon Greul in the next round. He could be tricky. Haven't seem him play but I figure the guy is in the zone with consecutive wins over Srichaphan & Hrbaty.
now this is an old souvenir !!!
Anyway, God dammit!
Maybe all of those beatdowns from Fed are beginning to take a mental toll on Lleyton.
I would have been surprised if Henman was the one who lost in straight sets. Henman must be in good form to have beaten Safin, so Hewitt never really stood a chance considering Safin hits the ball about 3 times as hard as him. It's not hard to tell that being a family man has sapped Hewitt's strength and fighting spirit.
It's a technical thing, Hewitt's backhand is dead. Time he gets real coach.
Well, until this week Hewitt's record against Henman was 8-0 while Safin's record against Henman was 3-2 - I was not at all surprised to see Safin lose, considering how he's inconsistent and how he's just coming back from injury, but I'm very surprised that Henman managed to overcome one of his nemeses.
nemesis: a righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent.
1. A source of harm or ruin
2. Retributive justice in its execution or outcome:
3. An opponent that cannot be beaten or overcome.
4. One that inflicts retribution or vengeance.
My definition was taken directly from the movie "Snatch" my most favourite movie ever next to Pulp Fiction.
To paraphrase Vitas;
Nobody beats Tim Henman NINE times in a row.
Nice one Timmer.
Oh, okay. I didn't get the reference, I haven't watched that many movies, those included...
...I thought that you were trying to correct me on word usage, and hence pulled up the definition to defend myself. Sorry for the confusion
You can't really look at Hewitt's past record these days. He's just not the same guy. He's almost outside the top 20 now. I wonder if he's gotten so close to his coach now that he doesn't get any criticism anymore. "It's okay Lleyton, we'll win it next time."
way to go Tim..
