2004 Mar 08 - Henman back in world top 10
Tim Henman is once again a world top 10 player in the ATP rankings due to his predominantly
consistent start to the season which has seen him reach the semi-final in Doha, the third
round at the Australian Open, the semi-final in Rotterdam, and the only bad result being
his recent first round exit in Dubai.
Of his rise back into the elite group of ten, Tim said:
"It's very rewarding to be ranked back in the ATP entry list top 10 again but it feels
a bit strange coming on the back of my first-round loss in Dubai.
"Perhaps it would have felt a bit sweeter if I'd had a successful week but the rankings
don't lie and I feel I deserve to be inside the top 10 as a reward for all the hard
work I've put in since first injuring my shoulder about 18 months ago."
Tim will next compete in the Pacific Life Open at Indian Wells, USA. A tournament in which
reached the final in 2002 only to lose in straight sets 1-6 2-6 to a man he has so far never
been able to beat, Lleyton Hewitt.
Of the forthcoming tournament, Tim said:
"My next event is here in Indian Wells, where I have some pleasant memories of getting
to the final a couple of years ago, so I know the conditions here suit my game."
"I'll be doing all I can leading up to my first match at the weekend to make sure I'm in
the best possible shape to compete."
