The sad thing about sport is that players make so much money outside of the game that they are not totally motivated to acheiving success on the pitch/court

Whether Henman was to win Wimbledon or not, he will still rake in the millions.

ok maybe, but deep down its not about the money. i thin if you were to ask whether he would have 500 thousand or wimbledon, he'd say wim.

i know if i were to become a tennis player i would want to win the slams and not think about the money i 'd get.

Henman is getting old now but he should not give up, i think that he's got potential. and he's improving.

He did in the 1st set. Hewitt is making a fight of this game finally. I want it to be a good (perhaps 5-setter) between these 2 brilliant players. Frederer is an absolute class player. In the commentating it said that not many people can do so, but he can top-spin and slice (or something) really well, and disguise both.
And Hewitt, well he's a total fighter. As well as being a very good player, he never gives up on a point. Hopefully, Hewitt will continue to fight Frederer, and perhaps this match will become an epic.

I don't think that Henman will retire this year. He will want to come back, and he'll probably anounce his retirement in a few years, and hope to go out on the centre court like Goran.

But he'd get about 500 grand for winning Wimbledon anyway.

He simply isn't good enough.

He should have been out in the 1st round.

well its based on these ideas:

A person can body build for 5 years, his muscles and bones will be as hard as steel, but what is the one thing that cant Harden ever?? Its the Joints!

So its all about how to break up the joints in self defense, i dont reall know that much about it, but onme of my teachs, said he had played it, and said that an intermediate Ikido player could beat a very good karatae person

Sorry about spelling
Akido, and yes it is based around arm bars and wrist locks. Another variation of Jujitsu, like Judo.

LOL.

Just noticed this subforum!

I would have thought the footy thread will be moved here.

As Motty just said "this is the real Figo we're seeing tonight".

Hopefully Holland can play the attacking football they've been playing in previous games.
