Tim Henman V Dominik Hrbaty
Dominik, no.24 ATP Race 2005, has had quite a good season till now. His best performances are QF in AO, where he eventually lost to Safin, QF at NASDAQ Open, and a SF two weeks ago in L.A. where he lost to Muller. So, all the good results came when he played on hard, as AO,NASDAQ and Mercedes Cup in L.A. are all hardcourt tournaments. However last week he lost in the second round pretty hard in Washington to in-form peruan Luis Horna. He has got a 24/17 winning streak this season.
Tim, no. 26 ATP Race 2005, is far from his real form, starting the year good but he seems to be runnig out of fuel. He reached QF in Rotterdam, Dubai, and Indian Wells but he couldn't keep up the good work. At Wimbledon he lost in the second round to Tursunov and in Washington last week lost to Moodie in 2 sets 7-6 7-5! He has got a 20-12 winning streak this season.
H2H the score is 3-1 for Henman, Tim winning 2 times in 2000 and last year, on hard, and Dominik succeded to overcome him this year, on clay, in 3 sets: 6-3 3-6 6-3 ! Hrbaty can surely win today too, he's got all it takes and a bonus help from Tim who is not himself ! Very nice odds too !
