How do you fancy Tim Henman to win Wimbledon?He is at his performance peak and with the big names out could this be his year?So far the best he has done is got to the semi-finals which has sent Britain in to a state of 'Timania' though we have always been dissapointed when he gets knocked out. I am hopeful he will get to the final and also hopeful that he could win the tournement which would lift the UKs spirits after the World Cup. Your opinions on Tim and Wimbledon on the whole?

RE: England may be out of the World Cup,but.... [updated:LAST EDITED ON 03-07-02 AT 04:26 PM (GMT)]Well now that Rusedski is out it can't be an all British final :( Though Greg is supporting Henman now and is saying that he is confident that he could go all the way this time which would be great.However,Henman should not underestimate his opponent Andre Sa as I think he did that in his last game.At the moment the game is rained off...typical Wimbledon!Hopefully Henman will be beat his Brazilian opponent so then we can say we beat Brazil at something.

We beat Brazil eventually........ Henman beat Sa to reach his old friend at Wimbledon-the semi-finals where for the last four years is the best posistion he has got to.He beat Sa in four sets,6-3 5-7 6-4 6-3. Now he faces world number one Lleyton Hewitt.

RE: We beat Brazil eventually........ Hewit, that crybaby? Nah, in that case I hope Henmen wins Wimbledon. Anyway, Malisse is still doing great at this time so we might have a Belgian in the finals!

RE: We beat Brazil eventually........ Geforce,you should of read the above reply,Henman went out in straight sets :( Also i'm afraid Malisse is not doing to good. I think he was loosing (7-6 4-2) before the game was rained off.It is understood he is suffering from illness.The BBC rumoured he might pull out.

RE: We beat Brazil eventually........ [updated:LAST EDITED ON 06-07-02 AT 06:17 PM (GMT)]Sorry Geforce Malisse is out.He lost three sets to two against Nalbandian. On the bright side at least a Belgian got to the semi-finals!So for the finals its Hewitt V Nalbandia. Also Serena Williams beat her Venus taking the Wimbledon trophy off her sister.They now play tomorrow in the womans doubles final.
