Tim Henman is going for a new British record...the first Briton to reach the quarter-finals of the French Open in over 15 years (I would be grateful if someone filled me in on when that last was - probably the 1970s/1980s with John Lloyd).
On a more personal note, this is his umpteenth opportunity to reach a quarter-final of a Slam outside Wimbledon after numerous appearances in the fourth round of the Aussie Open and the US Open.
Llodra is no rookie player though and Tim will find him a tough prospect on clay i'm sure. Don't automatically assume Tim will win this match - think back to when Greg Rusedski lost at this same stage in 1999 (?) to an underdog from Uruguay!!
Good luck Tim and school Llodra!!!
