She's just a tennis player. There's no need to drool over her.

Thank you. Could be the next Kournakova. (well, not talent wise, but you know what I mean)

I bet Henman goes out in the first week, his time has come. wink.gif Hope Federer is not TOO dominant though, though Roddick did kind of challenge him last year, and that guy Nadal could be an up and coming threat. We'll see.

I love following the tennis and now that Wimbldon is here I have the TV on whenever I can, but I am doing so much teaching in the evenings or practising for exam accompaniments that I end up missing so much! sad.gif

Oh yes, I'll be watching the tennis, hoping that Tim Henman will do well (doubt it!).

Well, on revision breaks I see glimpses of matches. When I was having my lunch though, the matches were all one sided sad.gif

Horray! I am glad that there are some other fanatics like me. biggrin.gif
I will definitely be supporting Tim and any other British hopefuls, but not holding my breath!
I feel like there is a great void in my day when the fortnight is over! biggrin.gif

Every match that I have watched Tim Henman play on TV, he has lost. Take last for example- he got quite (considering it was him), I watched the next match and he was out!

So, this year I will not watch any tennis

He did play poorly at Queens but I have seen matches where he has played really well and WON. He wouldn't be our number 1 if he didn't win.

*Yay for Sherwood getting through*

Roger Federer won in straight sets (6-4, 6-2, 6-4). Took him 1 hour 50 minutes
