Are there any tennis fans out there? Wimbledon has just started although it is raining at the moment!! Any predictions on who will win? I am going for Roddick or Federer but I hope Roddick.

I see our public school hero managed to beat a Latino bloke who hosts one of those (many) "pre-judge/judge the chavscum" programmes like Jerry Springer.

Or was that Geraldo.....same thing innit. Then again I think that Sally Jesse Raphael was a famous painter.

The sight of him punching thin air puts the fear of God into me, must be terrible for the opponent

He won his first round match but looked awful and for first set and a half, was losing. The other guy lost his nerve.

Oh goody!

Hm I know what you mean about Henny!

He used to get me all annoyed watching him serve so many double-faults in the past but hey maybe soonish he will lift up that trophy

Great thought but who knows?

I'm not a big fan of Tim Henman. I dunno why us Brits always seem to champion the same type of person - the Henman/Damon Hill type guy - who seem very bland and usual. Something about the very protestant way of punching the air that pits me off I guess. But hey, he's a world tennis pro and I'm not.

I hope Roddick wins, I like his style. Been a long time Agassi fan so it's a shame he couldn't make it.

no offense to his fans, but Henman does suck! he will probably get to the semi's after a five setter today, but then get ripped apart by Roddick... which is good 'cos a Roddick - Federer final makes for fascinating tennis

I too think Henman is more than a bit boring - both to watch & in his character.

I find it almost obscene to see and hear the Henman fanatics becoming hysterical when he wins a point by an opponents unforced error and then gently clap superb play by that opponent.

In the last game against Phillipousis (spelling?) even the judge got two obvious decisions wrong - in Henman's favour.

Perhaps it's just my dislike of mass hysteria and fanatics or a desire for fair play that makes me angry with it.

Womens tennis - what's that about? All that non-sexual grunting!!!!
