--British star Tim Henman, telling it like (he thinks) it is, in The Times (UK)

I started asking technical and tactical questions, and it was embarrassing. I was embarrassed for them. They knew nothing, they knew nothing about the game.

--British star Tim Henman, commenting to the Swiss press during the Basel tournament.
September 20, 2004: "Well, if you take Roddick's serve, Agassi's return, my volley, and Hewitt's speed, you've probably got a chance."
