First Rusedski, not Henman. At least, Rusedski was playing a highly-ranked opponent.

Guess I'll just have to concentrate my 'support' to the Zimbabweans - reigning mixed Doubles Champions Cara and Wayne Black are defending their title, and both of them are also seeded highly for the mens and women's doubles.......plues Cara has got through to the 3rd round

HATE the way the BBC is reporting it though "Henman crashes out..........well I just looked at the score for it and it went to 5 sets.........hardly a crash IMO

sorry marina, i just can't bear all the tinman bleating

Marina Thu 23-Jun-05 17:05:37

I am fascinated by his teeth...did he steal them off a horse?

I think it's great - every year 'will this be Henman's year - it's never looked better for Tim - now that Sampras/Agassi/anyone with a tennis racket has retired it's a real chance for Henman'.

And then it isn't. At least we only got 2 days worth this year!

Mr Ed?

bundle Thu 23-Jun-05 17:06:32

tortoiseshell, and the commentator said "that's it" (ie forever, not just this year)

tortoiseshell Thu 23-Jun-05 17:07:59

His last year? Didn't watch the match, just saw the score board

Tinker Thu 23-Jun-05 17:08:11

The angelic S name Marina. Decided as the registrar asked

hoxtonchick Thu 23-Jun-05 17:09:02

oooh, that's cheered me up!

MarsLady Thu 23-Jun-05 17:21:39

Ta ta Henman

LOL marina! I agree about all the conjecture, it is so boring. And I hate the way people slag off this country's sportsmen and women if they don't win. As if the people criticising could do better! Getting into Wimbledon in the first place is a big acheivement. Not everyone can be a champion.

It was a really exciting match though. And now Murray is playing so that will perk the crowd up a bit.

Thank god he went out early rather than making us wait until the semis for him to lose.
