Tim Henman Takes Masters in Paris


November 2003



This afternoon Tim Henman deservedly took the Masters Title in Paris beating Pavel of Rumania in three straight sets after a week of playing inspired tennis at Roland Garros during which he beat Grosjean, Kuerten then Federer, this years Wimbledon Champion, followed by a straight sets victory in the semi-final over Andy Roddick, current World Men's Number 1.

After a difficult year returning from injury with insufficient match play at the beginning of the season, Tim has ended the year exhibiting the form of which he is capable when both physically and match fit and went through this tournament without dropping a single set.

On 10 November Tim will be at the University of Bath opening 8 indoor GreenSet GRAND PRIX Acrylic tournament courts installed by DOE for the new LTA Tennis Academy "state of the art" tennis facility being based at Bath, already a centre of tennis and sporting excellence.

DOE have built up a strong working relationship with the University of Bath and as Ged Roddy, Director of Sport at the University says: "We've renewed an old and trusted friendship in creating this performance tennis environment by again selecting DOE to provide our court surfaces. DOE first became involved with us when they constructed our 8 outdoor courts for the European Youth Olympic Games here in 1995. Two years later they installed our first indoor courts and are now back with us again for this third and most ambitious stage of our programme pursuing tennis excellence.
