Oh, the previous defeating Chela was in Monte Carlo 2002 when he was Mister No-one, and at the time of the match they were tied 2-2... But no matter, indeed he was lucky with the draw, and Chela performed very poorly (old good times when I had access to a TV set) in that match against Henman. It was also fun to watch Henman - Llodra on clay, long beautiful match (me supporting Llodra).
But I actually don't say about people who he defeated then, he could have even lost to this Llodra, but the fact that "proud son of England" was so close to the top of French (his fight with Coria was fascinating by the way).
Just to pure amusement, let's follow Tim's losses in French:
1996 - 1st round, Kris Goossens (BEL) - journeyman, often guest of events in Poland
1997 - 1st round, Olivier Delaitre (FRA)
1998 - 1st round, Sargis Sargsian (ARM)
1999 - 3rd round, Alberto Berasatequi
2000 - 3rd round, Fernando Vicente (still was able to defeat Vince Spadea)
2001 - 3rd round, Guillermo Canas (Canas was his curse)
2002 - 2nd round, Galo Blanco
2003 - 3rd round, Juan Carlos Ferrero (ok... respect for this one... and for defeating Voltchkov and T. Martin - could have felt like at home)
2005 - 2nd round, Luis Horna (but still, def. Brzezicki)
