2004 Nov 02 - Henman beats Srichaphan in Paris
Tim Henman wasted no time in disposing of the dangerous Thai Paradorn Srichaphan 6-3 6-4 in the second
round of the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris, France.
History favoured the British No.1 who had only lost to Paradorn once in the six previous meetings and he
let his dominance be known as he broke in the sixth game of the first set and held to seal the opener.
In the second set it was again a single break which handed Tim a 5-4 lead and he comfortably held serve for 6-4.
After the match Tim said:
"I was relaxed and much more disciplined than I was in Basle for example.
"I served consistently and was able to get on the offensive all the time.
"I had some issues in Madrid but I feel much better. I felt exhausted in Spain, this is not the case any
more and I hope I will keep playing the way I did here.
"When you serve that well you have a chance to dominate the match and that's what happened."
In the third round Tim will meet either Russian Mikhail Youzhny or Czech Jiri Novak.
