    don't be silly, his serve isn't good enough. i think he'll struggle against phillapousis (sp). i think probably federer, but roddick might have a chance (and he is very attractive).

    serena will almost certainly win the womens.

    Roddick has to win with the looks but apart from that is a bloody good player. I too can not see tim getting past next match. Although would be good as he is british!! But its roddick or hewitt for me

    lol, but it happens every year. why would this year be any different? this is the 10th year in a row he has got to the 2nd week. yes he's very consistent, but never quite good enough to get to the final and i really don't think he's playing that well. he was losing silly points today and was lucky to get the first set.

    I didn't watch today because I was at work. I really hope he wins, now that England are out of Euro, Tim is our only hope! You never know, it might happen

    Would be nice, but could you see him possibly even taking a set off the likes of Federer?

    He would do extremely well to win tomorrow against last year's finalist in my opinion.

    Yeah my friend is a memeber of the lawn tennis association (he plays tennis for the town) and he gets put into a raffle of sorts every year and they pull out to see if you've won tickets, and he won tickets this (he did last year as well) and asked if i would like to come along...of course I jumped at the chance

    Tim's not got too bad a record against the top players. I think he has beaten Roddick and maybe Frederer a few times, but struggles against Hewitt or somehing. He struggles against one of the 3 anyhow.

    but that's when he's at his best. federer and roddick are both really good at the mo (federer's not dropped a set yet) and tim really isn't looking that great at the mo.

    Tim has beaten Federer twice this year I think. But also lost to him once. It's Hewitt who is Tim's bogey man. Tim has never beaten him.

    lol, and you were right. but he upped his standard of play an awful lot, he wouldn't have won if he'd played like he did yesterday

    Henman struggles immensely against all 3 - He beat Federer once years ago when he was a youngster, but there is a massive gulf in class now.

    His head to head record against the 3 is pretty poor, I'm sure.
