    And he's mentally shot, too, which doesn't help (gah, I'm sounding like Arjun banging the one same drum in every post...)

    Hewitt & Federer again tonight, hopefully both make it through (which they should).

    And Simon...Haas is still in with a chance down 2 sets to 1 and leading 3-2 in the fourth set.
    yeh had it not rained i think tommy would have won, he was down match points in the 3rd set tie break. But won it 10-8 and broke straight away in the 3rd set. so hes serving at 3-2. But now its a new day anything could happen. Hes first up on court 18 and maria is on soon after

    Yeah, I certainly am going for Haas. I remember a few years back, he was 2 sets to love down against Fromberg. Fromberg had it all over him, Haas couldn't even get racket to ball on Fromberg's serve (that's telling you how bad he was playing, because Fromberg's serve was crap!). Anyway...he just got it all together in the 3rd set and it all clicked, he ended up winning easy, so yeah, you are probably right that he would have won. These rain delays suck!

    Doesn't look like I'll get to see Hewitt tonight, he's like 3rd match on or something.

    See ya on MSN.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Channel 9 suck. I will be very surprised if you get a reply. Who wants to see Henman live anyway. If it was an aussie it would be a different story.

    Here in NZ we have two channels playing Wimbledon live, with Prime taking Nine's coverage and Sky Sport 1 taking the world feed.

    So I have a choice of the 2001 final on Prime, or Sharapova's first round match on SS1. Hmmm, decisions decisions...

    They just announced on wimbledon radio that Hantuchova's 2nd round opponent has withdrawn, meaning if Sharapova wins her next game they play in the 3rd round. WHAT A HUGE MATCH THATS GONNA BE!!!!!!!!
