    A Grand Slam QF with the seats only 1/4 full. Typical French crowd.

    @AfricanKillerBees What an absolute noob.

  • By AfricanKillerBees, July 28, 2010 @ 6:06 am

    @MaratSafinVideos So you’ve spoken to henman’s stringer have you? Bull shit! Fuck off you pleb.

  • By MaratSafinVideos, July 28, 2010 @ 6:26 am

    @AfricanKillerBees By stringers, by actually having knowledge of rackets. Do a little research, you fucking idiot. You seem like one of these clowns who think players are using their paintjob, which is only the case 15% of the time.

    @MaratSafinVideos How the fuck would you know? Hearsay?

  • By MaratSafinVideos, July 28, 2010 @ 7:11 am

    @karmiva Many believe that at this time he was using some kind of Wilson PS 6.1 (obviously with Slazenger paint job)

    @karmiva Slazanger something

    @lew1310 Anyone knows what racquet model Henman is using this video?

  • By lew1310, July 28, 2010 @ 8:37 am

    no doubt he was one of the best claycourters in 2004/05. But strictly claycourters. He was too limited for anything else.

    Just consider this fact – in 1990s and 2000s we had precisely 31 different grand slam winners, of which 16 of them were “one-timers” (with only a single grand slam victory just like Gaudio). But Gaudio remains the only player among all of them, that has never played past the 3rd round of any other grand slam apart from the one that he has won of course.

  • By davd1986, July 28, 2010 @ 10:21 am

    @glutamin111 In terms of results, perhaps, but Gaudio was always highly thought of, before and after he won RG. He was arguably the 2nd or 3rd best claycourter in the world the rest of that year and all of 2005. He had psychological issues, like Coria, so it was not a huge surprise to see him disappear after 2006-2007. He was actually a pretty decent player and was a dangerous clay courter before winning at RG, but I agree to some extent, he was one of the ‘worst.’

  • By CarlaLR74, July 28, 2010 @ 11:10 am

    I think the 2004 French was his best tournament ever.

  • By wjsvalderrama, July 28, 2010 @ 11:26 am

    @glutamin111 well thats pretty obvious.. 90% of the grand slams in that decade were won by federer and nadal..

  • By neontiger2007, July 28, 2010 @ 12:00 pm

    @glutamin111 Yeah that’s truth, but anyways he was then a rising star yet. What I CAN’T understand, bah I can… but I was so sad when he lost to Ginepri at US Open 2005, fifth set, tie break.. and a double.ft made him lose.That match Willy did like 25 DF’s. That’s really sad cause he always said taht in practices he puts every serve in but in matches he just can’t… And he was stupid enough to say that he didnt believe in psycholog., when they could have helped him a lot.. (sorry my english)

  • By glutamin111, July 28, 2010 @ 12:33 pm


    I remember Coria had a nice chance to set himself up a first French Open final in 2003. How the fuck did he lose in straight sets to that fat douchebag Martin Verkerk i dont understand to this very day.
    Maybe the incident with the ballboy played a big mental part in the match as Guillermo might have lost his focus. Maybe! But a certain thing is that Verkerk played way beyond his normal level in that tournament and against Guille he might just have had the best match of his life

  • By neontiger2007, July 28, 2010 @ 12:48 pm

    @glutamin111 I’m a fan of Coria but… Isadly have to agree with you :/ I’ll try to keep the good memories in my head (killing drop shots, nice topspin drives, solid defensive backhands, unlimited staimna to run….) but it’s to forget RG 04, Roma 05 and his double faults….. :/

  • By glutamin111, July 28, 2010 @ 1:07 pm


    Coria wiped his own ass out in that final more then he will wipe anyone elses ever again. Sadly, about 99% of tennis fans will remember Coria as the guy who made the biggest choke in grand slam final history and therefore went downhill with his career.
    The rest 1% which were his fans, will remember him as the clay court king of summer 2003.
    But Gaudio has to be the worst player that has won a slam in the past decade at least, if not worst ever.

  • By neontiger2007, July 28, 2010 @ 1:20 pm

    @glutamin111 At the time Coria was being awesome (2003 – 2004), Coria wiped his ass out. Gaudio…. who’s Gaudio??? Oh yes, the idiot that had a great backhand, now I remember that.

  • By Jamus182, July 28, 2010 @ 1:27 pm

    @atisto Ye, I am joking, its cos I’m english, but I remember this match thinking how good it was to see him play like this. That post was just a moment of passion 🙂

  • By atisto, July 28, 2010 @ 2:13 pm


    lol? you´re kidding

    Henman as one of the best claycourters of all time on position 3.


  • By Jamus182, July 28, 2010 @ 2:56 pm

    balls to it. This match brings back memories and now I make this statement:
    Three Greatest Claycourt players ever:
    2.Nadal (fo the time being)
