Sorry, Henny. Wimpy Wimby: Well, as I said earlier, if he doesn't win the thing it's time to retire. There are only so many also-rans that the poor Isle can take. 9 years: 4 quarterfinals, 4 semi-finals. That's as good as he'll ever be. Take away his Wimby performances and you'll find hardly any such lofty finishes elsewhere.

He's telegenic (decent teeth), has a nice serve-and-volley game, and tries hard, but he doesn't have a boomer serve, can't nail the inside-out forehand consistently, and isn't super-fast. And he doesn't wear his hat backwards. Cheers Timmy. Time to hang 'em up.
