Tim Henman found impressive form on clay to crush Lars Burgsmuller 6-0 6-3 6-3 in round two of the French Open. The British number one took control in the first set, capitalising on a string of unforced errors from his opponent. For a man with a mystery illness Tim Henman's game looked in the best of health as he thrashed Lars Burgsmuller to reach the third round of the French Open.
 

Against Burgsmuller, Henman could not have hoped for a more ruthlessly efficient performance full of aggression and brimming with what Henman does best, chipping and charging, dominating the net, generally controlling the tone and tempo of the match. The overcast, cool conditions helped. They were in stark contrast to the heat of Monday, but it was the heat emanating from Henman's racket which was the most telling factor. His serve had real bite, his groundstrokes genuine penetration plus, it should be said, he was also playing an opponent who seemed intent on catching the first available plane out of Paris.

Next up is Spain's Galo Blanco, the Spaniard who the Briton credits with firing his desire to master clay after a first round defeat in Monte Carlo in 1998, but who Henman beat here two years ago. Victory would take Henman into the fourth round at Roland Garros for the first time. That is incentive enough but with Andre Agassi's shock exit from his half of the draw, the tantalising prospect of progress deep into the second week is a distinct possibility.

You never know, he is playing good stuff but he has done that alot in the early rounds of many tournaments. He just needs to keep the momentum going.
