Tim Henman withdraws

Tim Henman has today pulled out of the Paris Masters due to rib cartilage damage sustained during his match against Andy Murray at the Swiss Indoors in Basel last week. From http://www.bbc.co.uk/tennis :

Tim Henman's season is over after withdrawing from next week's Paris Masters because of a rib injury.
The British number one fractured cartilage during his first-round loss to Scotland's Andy Murray in Basel.

However, Henman, who has been plagued by injury this season, said he did not feel any discomfort during the match.

"The one positive thing is that the season is now over for me and mentally I can move on and look forward to next year," said the 31-year-old.

"In terms of my back problem, the last few events have been better, which is why it's so frustrating to have suffered another setback.

"First, I have to recover from this, but once I do that my goal is to work as hard as possible so that I can start next year in the best possible shape.

"I'm very motivated and ready to start working hard to get off to the best possible start next year, when I plan to play a full schedule."

That's a little low for you.

Poor Tim - hope he recovers quickly, has a great offseason, practises hard and is ready, full of confidence, for an awesome 2006.
