An enquiry should take place by the French Open committee as to how Henman lost a set

For someone ranked as low as Henman, he could'nt of hoped for a better draw really

It's Tim, so I say it's a good thing it didn't go to something like 9-7 in a 5th!

Well he tried his best to throw away the lead in the 4th set so yes....I was getting worried. :lol:

A win is a win as far as Henman is concerned right now...he needs to amass enough points to get back into the top 40 by the end of the year and if he still wants to continue into 2007 he might then be able to push for top 20 again.

As to losing a set - not totally unexpected as the two of them have similar styles :shrug:

Last time than Carlsen won a match in Paris was in 1995. Also in 1993 he won a single match...
