Tim Henman defeated third-seeded Richard Gasquet 6-4, 6-4 in the first round of the Qatar Open on Monday, beating an opponent who enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2005 in which he broke into the top 20. Gasquet, a 19-year-old Frenchman, had not played since early October because of an injured right elbow.
