Order of play for Sunday: http://www.atptennis.com/en/common/TrackIt.asp?file=http://www.atptennis.com/1/posting/2006/329/OP.pdf

Their match is on not before 12.30, which is 5.30 Belgian time, which is 4.30 am UK time, I think. Who's going to be here, I'm def going to try!

no Cant do it. I've emailed Sky and the Beeb to see if they are putting it on interactive. Will let you know if they are. (They would have if it'd been Andy, which isn't fair. Tim deserves just as much respect.)


Frown But  I've had 3 nights this week staring at scores. I was SOOOOO tired yesterday. And I've partaken of a wee drop of wine today, so I do not DO 5am's on Sunday in those circumstances. :p

Well who'd have thought this at the beginning of the tournament!


i had a really good feeling that tim would make the final , there was no one really in his half 2 challenge him , well there was Anicic who was comin back from injury and Tursunov who has been playing alot recently and then there is tims good form of late.

COME ON TIM

Quite agree Hulahoop Tim deserves some coverage getting to the final I'm glad for him.Just read on Andy's official site after he and jamie lost the doubles he went to support Tim I hope Tim can win.Fed has had a couple of close run matches with qualifiers this week.Hope he's a little off form give Tim a crack at him he doesn't need the points Tim does.You deserve an endurance medal for sticking with that terrible site I was very surprised st it thought the clever Japanese would have a really well funtioning site the live scoreboard is rubbish or so it seems Good Luck to Tim hope he does it.

I'm afraid not. You are confusing ATP ranking points with race points. He gets 250 ATP points if he wins - which is only 50 race points giving him 180. Even if he won Madrid and Paris he can't get enough (although you'd have to wipe me off the ceiling)

I'm sure Fed will win in a routine way - and yet something just feels wrong about that scenario. Fed's early struggles, his nightmare ( lame) the very fast surface, and Tim's great serving this week. I think this might be a shock result.

This is awsome!  Tim's first Final for about two years!!

I checked the prices at work and heres what I found:

To Win
1/25 Federer
9/1 Henman

Sets
2-0 Federer 1/6
2-1 Federer 11/2

2-0 Henman 22/1
2-1 Henman 14/1

So obviously Fed is favourite to win, but bet on Tim and you'll get a good profit if he comes in Wink

Nice statistics.
People who bet on Tim will get great profits if he wins, but if he loses Whistle Who would take the risk?

Well, if you where to put just a pound on either, thats would be £1.04 return from Fed winning and £10 return on Henman.  Almost not worth betting on Federer but maybe worth risk losing £1 for Tim.
