Tiger Tim Henman

You have got to hand it to him, haven't you? He has got a snowball's chance in hell of winning Wimbledon, but he sure can keep us on the edge of out seats. Did you see his first match? Stopped due to poor light with the score 2 sets each, 5 games each. Watching this had been pure torture as it see-sawed back and forward. I did not see the end, as I was at work but the final set went to 13-11. Amazing stuff. Pure entertainment and the stuff the British tennis fan lives for. We don't want an over trained automaton who demolishes the opposition in straight sets! No, we want to laugh, cry, cheer, shout in desperation, and finally lose as we expect sooner or later.


Tiger Tim gives us that without fail every year, and that is why we love him so much.


COME ON TIM!!!!!

I'm totally clueless about tennis. If my kids don't play it, I don't get it. But it sounds like this guy provides much entertainment!

Well he has done it again - lost the first 2 sets, won the next 2 sets and then lost the 5th set. Tiger Tim is out of Wimbledon 2007.

Maybe NEXT year...
