    I'd really like Rusedski to win. Everyone worships Henman and forgets poor ickle Greg . Not that I particularly like him, but I do feel kinda sorry for him.

    does anyone else here hate hewitt?

    Wow I never knew that. That is amazing. Almost against the laws of nature/sport. There must have been something that clicked in his head or something. When any sportsman on the downslope towards retirement, he rarely comes back like that. The laws of nature are against him...
    Yes I know. It was weird - From the start of the tournament he said "I am destined to win after losing in the 3 finals."

    He just kept churning out result after result, beating unbelievable players.

    He beat henman in 5 sets, and was 2 points away from defeat, and he beat rafter in the final after being 2 points away from defeat.

    He was destined to win, serious - For example, he'd pray to god on big, big points and it would end up going his way. I remember on his 4th match point in the final, he kissed the ball and the tennis line. He then served and rafter hit the ball at the bottom of the net and he collapsed (ivanisevic).

    I kind of admire his strong mentality on court. He never gives up, which is something I have learnt from.

    roddick/hewitt for men and sharpova for women will win. actualy anyone can will apart from henman coz he is just a disapointment
    He got to the semi-finals of the French. I wouldn't call that a disappointment. It is because the media hype him too much that many people feel he is a disappointment. I don't really see many other British players out there getting that far in Grand Slams...

    How on earth hasn't anyone recommended Federer to win the tournament?

    World Number One, Defending Wimbledon Champion and thought of as the biggest tennis talent ever? How on earth has no1 mentioned him to win?

    He's the favourite with the bookies!

    Well, when you watch Hewitt, he runs down every ball, he puts all his energy into each point. Roddick didn't use to be mentally strong. He's certainly got better on the mental side of the game, but I still don't think he's a tough as Hewitt. Goran is tough in the mind- I mean, there's not many people in the world who could have had the mental strength to come back and win wimbledon on the verge of retirement.

    Wait a minute.

    How on earth is henman even capable of beating roddick or federer? He was 1 point away from being 2 sets to 0 down against a random nobody who had never played a grass court game in his life! (Serious) Henman doesn't have the ability to beat federer or roddick or even Hewitt.

    yeah i know its lethal, as is gorans

    Henman's beaten Federer loads of times at Wimbledon. Not last year but the year before Henman beat Federer in like the second round or something.
