    It was so nice to see Tim Henman yesterday play his own game in the semifinal. It brought back a lot of memories of how Edberg played his game. In fact Tim looks like a copy of the great Swede.
    It also struck me how important it is that serve-and-volleyers stick to their gameplan on clay. Edberg did so. Stich did and this year Henman did. And they have all three done it with a lot of success.
    Look att Becker and Sampras who both tried to adapt their play to clay. None of them had any real success at the French.

    Yeah like he said himself for the first set and a half and some of the fourth set he made the best playing clay courter playing right now, seem downright ordinary. Though to be fair, henman didn't really mention what the third set was like. Great you mentioned stich, if there was one s and v'er that should have won the french it was him for me, the guy looked downright comfortable on the dirt. The guy just lost his mental fortitude too easily.
