To my English friends, Henman is definitely not the answer to your search for a champion.

Actually, I don't mind watching Henman play. He does have quite a nice game. Lots of variety, and I've always enjoyed serve & volley.

On the other hand, I can't stand his personality or the way that the English media hypes him. Also, although, I quite like watching him play it does get rather annoying when they will spend half an hour previewing a match of his rather than say showing a womens QF match on the BBC.

I'd rather watch a test card.

I'm sure more ppl tune in to watch him lose and laugh at him than cheer him on...... He has the Manchester United syndrome, more ppl actually watch to see them lose than see them win so they can laugh at them. (I'm one of them)

I am English I hate watching him play - he just seems so false, arrogant and boring. He is a fantastic tennis player, but is sometimes way overrated. A lot of British people dislike him.

Im English and i dont like the way hes always on tv but theres never n e womens matches unless u av sky which i do at home but not at uni.

I have nothing against Timmy except during wimbledon when I want to see different players and all they show is Timmy, Timmy and Timmy and if he doesn`t play for a change then they show some preview of his next match, I know when you have british eurosport it`s even worse because then you have him all year, lucky I don`t have that problem!

Mar 12th, 2002, 10:51 AM
TBE, too right. I will occasionally tune in just to watch him lose - the Bjorkman situation in Melbourne was classic because it was so inevitable yet the (British) commentators couldn't see it!

Harsh I know. His volleys of course are excellent truly crisp and few can match that, but everything about his demeanour and the rest of his game just doesn't do it for me at all.

I can't stand Henman - he was a total jerk to me at the Australian Open one year - he is boring, BEYOND overrated and the British are dreaming if they ever think he will become Wimbledon Champion - as we say here in Oz

He's got BUCKLES!

Boy, I guess that I got my answer.

Thanks for all of the insightful responses, fans.
In the U. S., if we can not get Agassi, we get Pete, no Pete it's Roddick and if none of those three are available, we get Henman.

At least two of the other choices know how to win a slam and all are Americans.

Why don't you Brits get a cute English girl like ANNA, so even if we have to watch her lose all of the time, we can still, um, enjoy watching. :eek: :p

tfannis
Mar 12th, 2002, 11:49 AM
He's boring indeed and I hate it when it's all about him during Wimbeldon. Sue Baker has guests as John McEnroe, Jana Novotna, M. Navratilova and so on and the only thing she can ask them is "Will he win?", "Is this his last chance to win Wimbledon","Who can beat him":rolleyes: ,"Why did he lose",...

It's so ennoying. I really love it when he loses. I really enjoy watching BBC after his loss :o evil :o

Iconoclast
Mar 12th, 2002, 11:56 AM
Charisma is clearly not his specialty, but I have never perceived him to be arrogant. His demeanor seems quite relaxed and down-to-earth. Perhaps I don't know enough about his off-court antics to judge.

I do suspect his mere appearance causes people to view him negatively. The guy looks like a brat - so why not proclaim him to be one.

His tennis, however, is not up for debate. Henman is a superb technician with beautiful strokes. His serve and volley game is a stunning addition to the power-dominated ATP Tour. Frankly, he's a joy to watch from a pure tennis perspective.

My question would instead be: Do people really enjoy watching Greg Rusedski play?

TeeRexx
Mar 12th, 2002, 12:06 PM
Iconoclast - Real good post. I'm glad somebody out there enjoys watching 4 hours of tiny Tim. ;)

Seriously, he is a good player with very good technique, but the British has poured a lot of dough into his training I believe.
And he gets the hype of ANNA but is sans her looks.

I still thinks the Brits ought to find a cute babe to promote. :eek: :p

TheBoiledEgg
Mar 12th, 2002, 12:24 PM
Tee ..... there is Emily Webley-Smith (17) but not so good yet but the Brits tend to mature when everyone else is on the downward spiral ;)

LTA haven't funded Henman , he came thru with no help thanx to his familys past involvement in the game.

He's just a posh upper class snob .

Do ppl like watching Greg ?? you could ask a person if he likes someone sticking their tongue at you every 5 mins...... NOOOOOOO

TeeRexx
Mar 12th, 2002, 12:34 PM
Egg, Smith is a good start, but I know the Brits can get a little closer to and Anna-like babe. :cool:

I prefer Greg Rudseski as a person as he seems much more"real". Yet he is not British, and so you find it hard to truly root for him. The things that p**** me off about Greg is his incessant towel routine - for god sake stop it you twit!!

I don't like Tim, but I don't mind watching him play (even if I normally cheer for his opponent). When he's on (very rarely), he's got a very nice game. I really hate the way he can't win in a decent time though, even if he's up 6-1 6-1 5-1 you just know he'll lose the 3rd and 4th sets on tie-breakers before pulling it out 10-8 in the 5th.

BUT I DON'T WANT TO SEE HIM ALL THE TIME. :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

and I never want to see Greg. Aargh, the shoelaces and the towel and the shirt and the fidgeting. :fiery:

RayRob
Mar 12th, 2002, 01:20 PM
I'm British and I too cannot stand seeing him play. I'm sick of all the hype he gets during Wimbledon!

I can't even watch any of the other slams on Eurosport without being put through the torment of watching Tim Henman play. I think someone e mailed Eurosport during one of the Slams about them showing too much Tim Henman and the presenter said something sarcastic like "Look at the symbol in the top corner of your screen - it says British Eurosport."

I thought "The costomer is always right". It seems then that the oppinion of tennis fans is the wrong one!

I think eurosport really should see this!

Kart
Mar 12th, 2002, 01:38 PM
How could I have missed this topic for so long ???

My issue with Henman is more than just his coverage at Wimbledon - which frankly is enough though.

The British media so overrate him. I watched him almost lose to Robredo yesterday and I still maintain my opinion that he has nothing special on his groundstrokes or serve. His volleys are good but he rarely went to net.

I much enjoyed watching Robredo more.

Of course, it doesn't help his cause that the commentators on Sky sports and on the BBC are all his mates and so can't be objective in the slightest.

And while I'm on the subject, he never credits his opponents properly - it's like "oh he played well to beat me but if I'd played my game better I'd have won." Whatever Tim.

I prefer Rusedski (just) because he at least smiles and has decent teeth.

Ok enough whining, I'm going to get in trouble if I go on.

RayRob :), I remember when that happened on eurosport and I just thought why don't they just name it 'Henman eurosport' and be done with it :rolleyes: .

Mar 12th, 2002, 01:49 PM
You guys astonish me! I LOVE watching Tim! :D I love his daring serve-and-volley game. It is so tiresome to watch a couple bozos banging from the baseline; Tim's game is a refreshing change!

That's not to say he'd be my favorite person to meet, or that the BBC should cover him or discuss him to the extent it does. But I have been in the UK during Wimbledon several times, and I notice they cover Anna K. just as much as they do Tim, so no need for a homegrown "anna" to take the stage! For instance, surely you remember that during all those rain breaks in 2000, the BBC repeatedly showed a tape an Anna K EXHIBITION match??? Admit it, Tim gets shoved to the side if Anna is around, or even after she has lost in the 2nd round, like she did that year. Now THAT'S annoying! :p

Rollo
Mar 12th, 2002, 01:53 PM
I understand the way Brits feel-like Tee said, we get Agassi, Sampras, and now Roddick shoved down our throats here in the States:p

and I don't know diddly about his personality.

He WILL win a Wimby one day though;) probably on a wet year-
As for his game-he's th elast of dying bred, the serve and volleyer. That alone makes him worth seeing. We need more Henmans in both the ladies and the gents:)

RayRob
Mar 12th, 2002, 02:20 PM
LOL Kart - "Henman Eurosport" :D

Heman, gets as much as (if not more) coverage than Kournikova. In fact the Exhibition match that was mentioned was one done for Children in Need on the middle Sunday. That match was shown in two parts when there were rain delay's......otherwise, it proberbly wasn't going to be shown.

Henman gets a lot of coverage and what doesn't help it is the fact that Sue Barker (as much as I like her) keeps on about him because she's watched him grow up. In fact she used to take him to his tennis sessions when he was a boy. Tim Henman used to called her "Auntie Sue".

Henman is hyped up because the LTA want to try and encourage kids to play tennis...........but all it seems to do is discourage the kids. I call Henman the "Nearly Man"........with him it's always going to be next time - maybe next time. One day there may never be a next time. I hope he can pull off a Wimby win for his sake or else he'll be regretting it for the rest of his life "I should have won". With all the hype he get's it's enough to send the guy crazy!

"To my English friends, Henman is definitely not the answer to your search for a champion." Tee Rexx

Mr Rexx you don't HAVE any English friends! :p ;)

I don't like Henman, I don't like the flag waving hysteria that surrounds him...

BUT, who else is there? I like Rusedski but he isn't British, and there is no credible alternative...

Ive said it before though, I don't care what nationality the player is, it happens I haven't much liked ANY Brit tennis player...

My two all time faves: Julie from France and Mcenroe from US of A, nationality never played a part in either case.

I won't take sporting lectures from a nation where the national pastime is just rounders in pyjama's. :p ;)

If the Americans want to say "Math", let them say it. Well, as for darts, let the BBC bore us to death with such games. The only sports/games we're good at in the UK is pub games.......darts, pool, snooker.........and we supposidly have a good football/soccer team (footbal, a game that is played on a sunday by regular pub goers) - now what does that say??????!!!

About Henman - I enjoy to watch him play, as many have pointed out, he is one of few serve and volleyers left - and the only one who seems to get much coverage over here (oh how I miss Rafer :( ).

On tennis alone, I enjoy watching him. I find Greg a little more charismatic - but can't root for someone who left Canada for another country over money :)

I love to watch Tim because it is TEXTBOOK TENNIS. Sometimes he is sooo perfect it is scary. Yes he is a boring poker face like Pete Sampras and Venus Williams but all these players get the job done. Robredo was definitely cuter but did not deserve to win cause Tim played better most of the time. Just watch Tim and you will learn that NO MATTER HOW POWERFUL THE OTHER PLAYERS GROUNDSTROKES ARE YOU CAN FIND A WAY TO NET. He is very very skilled sometimes mentally weak though.

Henman is fake. How did he get the nickname "Tiger Tim" anyway ... on second thought, don't answer that. I'm sick of BBC and Eurosport killing us with Tim (at least show Rusedski), ESPN boring us to death with an out of form Agassi (I used to like watching him play), always boring Sampras (I usualy cheer for his opponents), and RodDICK (who i utterly can't stand), RAI almost never shows tennis (and when they do it is Italy in Davis Cup). On the other hand, I like ZDF because they usualy show good matches (bit of over-kill on Haas and Kiefer though) and HRT (ok, so they only show Croat - that is all that's important anyways ;))

"Ok, Scotso, you can have Tiny Tim for your Canada team. "

I assure all Brits who are infuriated with Tim, that we would be happy to take him.

Seeing as you guys took our best player ;), its only fair that you give us yours :D

By the way Tee Rexx - in your list of things you get when applying for US citizenship, you seem to have forgotten that you also recieve a "World Map" that mysteriously only has the USA on it.

:p

Becca - Yes, the map does come in the initial pack and also a copy of "The complete guide to Redneck English" as well. ;)

Most of the world will be speaking Redneck by 2040. :eek:

Mr. Ba - Yes, we agree about about George the Dim.
As far as Winona, hey, where's my damn wallet?
It was just here a second ago when Winona walked by and ... Winona, bring back my wallet you clepto!! :eek: :p

Winona says to tell you she doesn't like you anymore Mr Rexx. Not that she ever did.:p

She prefers unassuming, kindly, sympathetic English types a la Mr Ba. :)

Ok, Mr. Ba, now how are you going to pay for your dinner since you seem to have,uh, er, misplaced your wallet?

Hint: Look in Winona's purse. And get my back to while you are in there. :eek:

No, my aprentice Ba, that is someone else's wallet the young Winona, um, er, "found". :eek:

My wallet contains $3500 in cash, two tickets to Verdi's "Rigoletto" and the photo of my newest girlfriend in the picture section as the copy below depicts:

I can't find a wallet with a smutty picture in sadly, Winona has 'found' only one more wallet which by elimination must be yours.

It has a love letter inside addressed to a 'Mr T.R lovebuns', with this picture attached...

Mr Rexx, I think the Williams Tennnis Association is just a cover name...

You PRETEND to like the Williams sisters to gain credibility...but secretly your 'WTA' stands for the Wonderful Tauziat Association.

You adore the maniacal Tauziat! :eek: You bask in the fact that she began playing in 1923!

You want the truth??
You can't handle the truth!

:p

(Hate that film)

Well make that 5!

I like Tim. He has the best chip and charge in the business, and is a great player. He's also seems like a descent guy. One of the few players that can keep his cool on the court. Plus I met him ant Indian Wells, and he was a really cool guy.
