2004 Oct 07 - Superset: Rusedski loses in final
Tim Henman is recovering from back and shoulder problems sustained during the Davis Cup tie
against Austria recently but plans to be back in action in the Tennis Masters Madrid tournament
starting 18th October.
The British No.1 said on his personal website:
"The rest has done me the power of good and I'm hopeful of hitting some balls
soon - perhaps at the weekend."
Defending the BNP Paribas Masters trophy Tim won in Paris in 2003 is also on the agenda starting
1st November. It is the most prestigious trophy outside of the four Grand Slams.
The end of season Tennis Masters Cup in Houston is open to those players in the top 8, so with
Tim currently residing in sixth position it is imperative that he remains fit and keeps picking
up championship points.
"Traditionally, it's always a bit frantic at this time of the year for the players that
have a chance of qualifying for Houston, and it's nice to be in that position.
"It would be even nicer if I could qualify sooner rather than later so I could enjoy the next few weeks a bit more.
"There are so many points up for grabs in both Madrid and Paris that there are still quite a few permutations.
"But I'm going to concentrate on my own game as I have done throughout the year and hopefully that
will get the job done."
