Gaston is the favourite on clay,but with his form I think Tim will win in 3. :cool:

I'd like to see Henman winning it, but that's not very realistic, but at least one set should be possible.

Tim has beat Gaston twice on clay. I think Tim can still take him out,considering Gaston's not playing his best.

After beating Safin and Hewitt, I can see Henman coming through this one in two, maybe three. Gaudio has just lost again, on his preferred surface, and I think Tim, with his imporved clay court play over the last couple of years, could beat Gaudio comfortably, especially on the Monte Carlo clay.

What a dreadful draw (says me, the only Henman/Gaudio fan on the board, I should imagine). Well, I hope the winner can go far, although in Henman's case I see Acasuso or Volandri ending his challenge in the second round anyway. It will be interesting to see whether his rushing style still gives Gaudio fits so longer after their last encounter, and even longer after their claycourt meetings.

Gaudio will crack the shits and unlike his friend Zabaleta who shows how to beat Henman on clay, Gaston will come up short again.

Henman will teach Gaston a little clay court tennis lesson. Slice him up Timbers! :bounce::bounce::bounce: Had Tim beaten Coria, I have no doubt who would have won THAT 2004 RG! :mad: :mad: :mad:

He was as close to winning that semifinal as the Germans were at breaking through the Russian trenches at the battle of Kursk.

As for the match, Henman has a good chance but even if he prevails he is going down in round 2.

You're not the only Henman and Gaudio fan on the Board - I am too :sad: And I hate this draw for both of them.

I think Henman can win this...but Acasuso (not Volandri) would take him out R2. :mad:

Gaudio in straight sets with at least a break in each set

Tim has been known to play some superb tennis on clay. The only problem is that one fantastic set can easily be followed by two dreadful ones (see match against Zabeleta or indeed Chela, last year)

Since Henman won their previous encounters, I suspect he'll repeat the same formula with similar success.

This season Gaston has beaten the following stars of the tennis world:

Sluiter, Mayer, Sabau(2), Portas(2), Burgsmuller, Saulnier, Daniel, Bjorkman, Parada.

While losing to Safin, Santoro, Horna, Patience, Baghdatis, Vliegen, Ramirez-Hidalgo. So I doubt he'll be going into the event with a great deal of confidence.

Wasn't Henman a set and a break up at one point? If we're into military analogies, a better one would be he was as close as the Lancastrians were to winning the Battle of Towton...

What i had in mind making the analogy is that it looked extremely unlikely that the Germans would break through at Kursk before the battle started. Then it looked as if it might happen but eventually it became obvious that they were not even close. Being a break up on clay does not amount to much, Tim did not have the energy to come through a best of five match against Coria at that moment in Paris.

As for the Battle of Towton, i don't know enough about the houses of Lancester and York to comment.
