fun tourney - was another decent chance for Henman to do something big at the AO, he did land with some epic opening-up draws down under, but never took advantage. Tojo was rock solid in the final and thoroughly deserved his slam - would have far preferred Marat or Haaaasi taking it, however.
It's always puzzled me why Henman never did particularly well at the AO. I know it's a slow hardcourt but it wasn't as slow back then and he won a handful of pre AO warm up tournaments (and 2 Indian Wells finals and it's hardly screaming fast there). He should have at least completed his SF set there at some point or another.
