2004 May 25 - R.Garros: Henman vs Burgsmuller
Tim Henman will face German Lars Burgsmuller in the second round of Roland Garros in Paris tomorrow.
With the British No.1 struggling to cope with a virus he will be hoping for an easier match
than the 5-setter he played in the first round against Cyril Saulnier.
On the forthcoming match Tim said:
"If in my next match I'm not feeling my best that's fine - accept it and play with the cards
"I'll do the best I can. Perhaps I can start to feel a bit better and who knows what might happen."
Tim and Lars have played each other twice before, in Hamburg (2001) on clay where the German won in straight
sets, and in Miami (2002) on a hard court where Tim won the match over three sets.
