Bad comparison, Nalbandian has more power and can hit with aggression more successfully than Hewitt while still maintaining his speed - that's why he's such a nightmare for Federer because he can stretch to difficult returns like Hewitt and return them with the pace and accuracy of Agassi. Schuettler is more like Hewitt in than he relies primarily on counterpunching but can be aggressive and hit winners when he needs to against other quick players such as Clement.

Leading 40-15, Henman made his service game pretty difficult but still held for 2-0. One more break, please!

One more break it is! 3-0, and Henman might finally break his third round duck in Paris as well as secure a spot in the Top 30 for next year!

Hardly. Henman has beaten Philippoussis twice in Australia and while he has a losing record, they've been tight matches. It's true that the Scud was a finalist here three years ago, but Henman has been in better form recently so it'd be a far tighter match than you suggest.

and hooray for that! It's great to see him playing well outside of Wimbledon!

I knew a double break wouldn't necessarily be conclusive, Henman's having to fight hard and save breakpoints in this game.

Phew! 4 breakpoints saved and Henman holds for 5-1! That should just about do it, but you should never say never in tennis...

Woh, so zephyr was all for Henman yesterday against Grosjean but now wants Federer to kick him out tomorrow? Good luck mate, with Henman's record against Federer it will most likely be the other way round.

Timbo served a double fault to open up when serving for the match, but hit two aces to finally close it out - he outaced Guga 6 to 4, which says a lot about how much better a returner he is than Philippoussis.
