I dun no why, I'm gettin bored of tennis....... it's just gettin too predictable and monotonous.. i suppose it's always been monotonous, maybe I'm just bored of the monotonous of the game?

We've lost Hingis, and now we're losing Seles, who I consider one of the most exciting players on the tour.... and we're also losing Kounikova (not that I ever had her or anything!)... ai............. hope Wimbledon ain't a drag too....

Allez Sebastien! And goodness me, I'm saying that as a Henman fan. Mind you, there are a lot of people other than Grosjean that I would have preferred to beat Henman, but then there are also a lot of people whom I would want to beat him even less (Hewitt comes to mind).

Should be an interesting test of the British crowd's loyalties given the precarious tightrope act that we have recently walked between the USA and France. Roddick is certainly deserving of the title, but this early in his career it would seem, I don't know, weird... at least Grosjean has some grass-court history behind him with his previous titles.

It's interesting... Queens always has a less rowdy crowd than at Wimbledon, their support is more along the lines of the occasional shout of encouragement and general enthusiastic applause whenever he plays good points. To be honest, Henman gave them very little to cheer about today, and the noise virtually died out by the start of the second set. A lot of credit for that goes to Grosjean, who did what he had to do very effectively.

I've never liked Henman. He has zero personality and he gets all our tennis coverage. I just don't like the guy. Greg Rusedski is a different story and he should get much more coverage over here!

I'm backing A-Rod to win tomorrow straight sets, hopefully! :) :bounce: :bounce:

Well I'm a Belgian Brit. Lived in the UK pretty much all the time since I was 8 and all my family are Geordies or Welsh.

Anyway, Rusedski is so much more of a charcter than drab Tim Henman. It annoys me how Greg is overlooked so much after all he holds the fastest serve record and he is the only one to reach a Grand Slam final!. But despite all this Tim is the media's favourite. I don't get it.............
