2004 Jul 29 - Henman defeated by Kuerten

Tim Henman crashed 7-5 6-4 to the flamboyant Brazilian Gustavo Kuerten in the second round of the Tennis Masters Toronto in Canada.

Early in the first set Tim had chances to break but Gustavo held on before striking a decisive blow to lead 6-5 and serve out the set 7-5.

Gustavo's second set performance was very business like as his serves and passing shots hit with pace and precision which the British No.1 struggled to cope with. It was the Brazilian who earned a break which was all he needed to take the final set 6-4.

The result was a disappointment for Tim as this is one of the pre-US Open hard-court tournaments but he is still scheduled to play in the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters event in Cincinnati, USA starting 2nd July. His first round match will be against the Moroccan Younes El Aynaoui who Tim has a 3-0 undefeated career record against.
