Absolument HILARIOUS commentary from the Beeb.

Henman 6-3 6-6 Tursunov
Tursunov holds to 15, and it's a tie-break. Deep breaths all round.

Henman 6-3 6-5 Tursunov
More entries for Errorfest 2006, but finally Tim holds his nerve to edge in front. Could he possibly close this one out?

Henman 6-3 5-5 Tursunov
Neither man seems to want to win this set. It's like a new version of tennis - whoever wins least service games goes through. Nemesis sets up a break point, blows it, and then belts a simple smash into the tramlines to keep Tim alive in the set.

"You could put a DVD together of all the mistakes in this game and call it 'How Not To Win A Quarter-Final'. You'd find it in the comedy section." BBC commentator John Lloyd.

Henman 6-3 4-5 Tursunov
Uh-oh. Here we go again. Henman loses his concentration and with it his serve. Daley won't be liking this. In fact, no-one in the crowd is liking this.

Henman 6-3 4-4 Tursunov
At last - two dongs in a row. Tursunov holds his serve to level the set. What's the time? Could it be Nemesis o'clock?

Henman 6-3 4-3 Tursunov
Make that ding-dong-ding. Henman, the epitome of a polite young Englishman, lets Nemesis break him straight back. "After you, Nemesis." "No, after you, my whipping-boy." "No no - after you..."

Henman 6-3 4-2 Tursunov
Henman breaks straight back. This is the definition of a ding-dong battle. If it's not already on dictionary.com, it should be soon.

Henman 6-3 3-2 Tursunov
A good job that chicken-counting was put on hold - Tim loses his service game in lame fashion to let the Russian - who has been based in California since he was 12 - back into the game.

"There hasn't been the same thuggery today that you would usually expect from Tursunov." BBC commentator John Lloyd.

Henman 6-3 3-1 Tursunov
Wallop - Tim gets that all-important break. If he only wins his service games now, he'll have downed The Nemesis. But since dictionary.com defines nemesis as "an opponent that cannot be beaten or overcome", no-one should be counting any chickens quite yet.

"Terrific scrambling from Henman." BBC commentator John Lloyd.

Henman 6-3 2-1 Tursunov
Solid serving from Henman is too much for Stamper/Nemesis. Perhaps unaware of the intimidating moniker just given to his opponent, Henman keeps his concentration to edge in front.

Tim Henman defeated his "nemesis" of recent times Dmitry Tursonov 6-3 7-6 (7-1). In a game with an unbelievable 12 breaks of serve both players were a bit off their form at the beginning of the match, but with henman starting the stronger and Tursonov missing a few of his trademark forehands, Henman took control of the first set early on. Immidately establishing a 3-0 lead with two breaks, only to be broken back in the 4th game. It was long before Henman discovered his rhythm however and took control taking the first 6-3.

The seocnd set started off with 3 straight service games, the longest run in the match, before 3 successive breaks made it 4-2 Henman and it looked like the match was his. However, 3 straight games from Tursonov tiped the tables once more and the crowd seemed to sense another Henman dissapointment. Luckily, Tim played a brilliant 10th game for the 12th break of the match to level the scores at 5-5. The set inevitably went to a tiebreak, which Henman dominated from the start.With Tursonov totally losing any rhythm he had Henman took the game, and the match, 7 points to 1 for a memorable victory! He will now meet Llyeton Hewitt or Rafael Nadal who are next up on court one.

The real nemesis awaits him in the next round. Frown

As someone said in LOTR (Aragorn most probably), "our doom lies east and not west."  Does not make any sense though.  Think

Hewitt on grass is going to be really tough. But Tim is on superb form too. Smile
I was considering supporting Nadal for this match, but have now decided that Tim should face Hewitt and then win. woohoo
