2004 Nov 08 - Henman looking to Masters Cup
Tim Henman doesn't feel his disappointing third round exit in the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris will
have any bearing on his chances in the end-of-season Masters Cup in Houston, USA.
The British No.1 told his personal website:
"I don't think losing early affects my chances of doing well - with the regular season over I can focus
on the last event of the year.
"I think it's wide open.
"There are a few injury issues - Roger Federer hurt his leg in Basel and both Guillermo Coria and
Carlos Moya have had problems with their shoulders.
"On top of that, Andy Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt have both taken a bit of time off recently to recharge
"And Gaston Gaudio has only played a couple of tournaments since the US Open so it's tough to predict how
anyone will perform."
"But undoubtedly, the guy coming into the event in the best form is Safin, who's obviously been on a bit of
a roll for the last couple of months."
