2003 Oct 30 - Henman reaches Paris quarter-final

Tim Henman's impressive winning streak continued as he defeated Gustavo Kuerten in the third round of the Paris Masters tournament with a 6-4 6-2 straight sets victory.

The talented Brazilian just couldn't get himself into the game, primarily due to one of the finest Tim Henman performances we've seen this year.

All was square in the first set until Tim broke serve in the fifth game, and proceeded to hold his own serve to secure the set. The second set saw Gustavo broken in his first service game, and Tim continued to apply the necessary pressure until he had closed out the match.

With impressive victories over Sebastian Grosjean and Gustavo Kuerten already under his belt, Tim will be in confident mood as he takes on reigning Wimbledon champion Roger Federer in the quarter-final.
