Monte Carlo TMS 2005
What a horrible first round for Tim! He has drawn Mariano Zabaleta. H2H is tied at 4-4, with Tim winning the last meeting in Toronto (6-4 6-1). However, Zabaleta won all 3 meetings on clay, two of those 3 went to a 3rd set.
Tim will also play doubles in Monte Carlo. He won the doubles title last year with Nenad Zimonjic. This year he's playing with Yves Allegro of Switzerland.
Here are Tim's results in clay last year:
Monte Carlo: QF (lost to Schuettler)
Roma: 3rd rd. (lost to Zabaleta)
Hamburg: 2nd rd. (lost to Pavel)
Roland Garros: SF (lost to Coria)
