Tim Henman is ready to play in Auckland after having practiced with his coach today and later answered questions to the media.
What do you expect from tomorrow's match against Stefan Edberg?
Well, I don't expect long rallies
. I practised a lot of returns today, I think I'll need a good return game tomorrow...
How was your trip to Auckland?
It was quite a long trip, but nowadays with all the comfort of the airlines etc. it has become much better. I can't see why some players still come by ship, if you have such great possibilities
What will you do tomorrow before your match?
I will hit some balls with Fernando Meligeni, he's a good friend. (I hope to meet him in Semis and then beat him
) Then I'll have something to eat and wait for my match.
Thanks for your questions and wish me luck for tomorrow
