After the match Tim said:

"I would have liked to have won more matches here.

"I'm disappointed right now, but I'm sure that a week from Monday I'll be raring to go.

"I need to work on my transition to the grass, and I'll absolutely be doing that over the next 10 days."

Karol Beck was delighted with the result as this was the first top-10 player he has defeated, he said:

"It's the best result of my career because Tim Henman is a great player."
