Tim Henman is a tough first round opponent and even though he didn't have a good 2005, you never know how he is going to play in 2006. I think its a good first round match to test the waters for Richard. I would love to see a Richard-Roger semi, but let's take one match at a time for both players.
As for the doubles draw, I would love a Richard/Seb vs Julien/Nicolas 2nd round match. J and N are a great team

Tough draws for Richard! I hope he'll do well. But I also hope the same for Tim because Tim had a horrible year last season Allez Richard!

I have a good feeling Richard will beat Timmy. He just has too much game for Tim right now. I'd never underestimate Henman tho. If Richard is injury free he should win this match up in straights. Best of Luck to Richard in '06!
