2005 May 22 - R.Garros: Henman new opponent

Tim Henman has side-stepped a potentially tricky first round match with Potito Starace at Roland Garros, as the Italian has withdrawn with an ankle injury.

His replacement will be the 23-year-old Argentine Juan Pablo Brzezicki who has been regularly reaching semi-finals in Challenger events this season and took a set from American James Blake at Forest Hills, New York, earlier this month.

Tim is looking forward to emulating - or even surpassing - the Roland Garros semi-final he reached last year:

"I now have strength in my belief that I can play very effectively on clay.

"If you can be in the semis of a Slam why can't you go further?"

Roland Garros starts on Monday 23rd May.
