Henman must be sick of playing Murray... not only is it against another Brit, but Murray is a terrible match-up for Henners.
I'm sick of seeing the match-up on paper...so Tim must be more sick playing him!
The reason I say Tim will win is because it is rare for a player to continue to lose to the same guy. Admittedly, Tim has waited a while for a win against some players e.g. Sampras (6 straight losses) and Hewitt (8 straight losses)...but eventually the win tends to come.
Tim got closer in his last match against Murray and the situation is even better this week. Murray flies over from the Ukraine...a tough flight. He is short of practice on indoor courts and comes from a very slow clay court. Also, Bangkok seems to play well for the big servers and relatively decent volleyers e.g. Dent, Srichaphan, Roddick, Safin...I'm sure Henman would like the conditions.
