Henman withdraws from Paris.

I only discovered this when I visited the Paris thread so I thought it might be better placed here.

I just hope he recovers quickly and can enjoy the offseason. Hopefully he can do better next season...hard to see how he can't

So Greg needs to reach R2 to get British #1 - bit of an anticlimax. Good luck to him anyway.

Get better soon Tim. Looks like next year will be his last.

Re: Henman withdraws from Paris.

Greg has a very winnable R1 match against Seppi as well. To be fair, Rusedski would probably deserve it, he's had a significantly better year than Henman. Having said that, I don't think he'll have it for long, Tim will come back strong next year, and the young Scot has absolutely nothing to defend early next year and barring an injury, should surge up the rankings.

Re: Henman withdraws from Paris.

Seppi will be very tough mate - he almost beat Greg not too long ago on a hard court. However, admittedly, the surface suits Greg more I guess.

Yes he does deserve it, but as Julio has kindly pointed out, he will need R3 to get Brit #1 and that is going to be far from easy.

Tim will drop to Brit #3 at some point next year I think as all his points stretch between January and April.

If Greg loses to Seppi indoors he doesn't deserve the British no.1 spot

I think I'd fancy his chances against Davydenko to be honest, especially after the pathetic performance he put in against Kiefer last week.

As I say, he's only keeping the seat warm for the young Scottish prince though

Get well soon Tim - and best of luck for a return to form and at least 1 title in 2006.

Hope Henman can have a BETTER season next year because I think it will be his last.

What frightens you?

Re: Henman withdraws from Paris.

Get well soon Tim and come back ready to kick butt in 2006.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
