Mariano Zabaleta def. Tim Henman 6-4, 4-6, 6-2

Vamos Mariano

It got a little scary for awhile but thankfully Zabaleta found his game when it really mattered. And as usual, Henman fell away at the key moments.

Tim is going to lose alot of points this claycourt season, this is just the beginning. I can even see him dropping to around #10 or below in the rankings too, last year is too dificult for him to back up.

WOW, I felt to go to school and Tim was about to win the second already, so I gave it for granted that Mariano was going to lose. But so awesome that he didn't! Well done Mariano

Mariano keep his good record up against Henman on clay and I felt calm during this match like he was never going to lose it all. Mariano has to play Santoro next which will be different altogether.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

The match against Santoro will be grueling. I suppose it's best that I don't have coverage.

Tim Should play in Barcelona or Munich
instead he wont come back until the Italian open, where another 1st round loss will await him

They have only played once and it was on grass.

Santoro struggled to beat the Toad, but Zabaleta has a big chance for the 3rd round.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
