That got you hitting this post!
Well it is technically true - if Hewitt fails to reach the final then Henman is ahead of Coria at no.4 by 5 points - the equivalent of a 1st round appearance at a tournament! If Hewitt reaches the final then Henman has to win the US Open to reach the Top 3...against Hewitt that ain't gonna happen!
Anyway...Henman will leave the US Open richer, more confident, and no lower than entry number 4. Good luck against Federer, Tim!
