Come on Timmy!
I have been taking a keen interest in the US Tennis Open
. Tim Henman has just won
his quarter final match against Slovakian Dominik Hrbaty 6-1 7-5 5-7 6-2 and will play Roger Federer on Saturday (September 11th) in New York. Both of the men's semi's will sandwich the women's final at Flushing Meadow
on what the New Yorkers call their "Super Saturday."
I am a bit of a cynic when it comes to Henmania, but his confidence is noticably improving and without the huge weight of expectation that hangs around his neck at home and with his back to worry about and not his opponent, this might just be Tim's time.
Next Tuesday also sees the start of the Ryder Cup
which will take place not too far from here at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield, Michigan. Is this the only time that us Brit's feel part of Europe?
