Tim Henman rewrote the history books again on Tuesday when he became the first British man for 41 years to reach the semi-finals of the French Open.
 

Henman dictated play from the start, breaking Chela in the first game of the match, and never allowed the Argentine clay courter to get into a rhythm. Henman saved his most ruthless performance yet at this remarkable tournament for his quarter-final clash in which he dismantled so called claycourt expert Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina in just one hour and 50 minutes to record a 6-2 6-4 6-4 victory.

The 29-year-old will now face third seed and tournament favourite Guillermo Coria in the semi-finals. Henman is the first British man since Mike Sangster in 1963 to reach the last four at the French Open. Should he upset Coria, Henman would match Bunny Austin's run to the final in 1937. Until this year, Henman's best Grand Slam performances had all come on grass at Wimbledon where he has been a semi-finalist four times.

Go Tim!!

Well it's about time he got it together, with his style of play it helps him on the clay and he does have a good chance. Big game next, this will be the toughest one so far. If he wins that he should win the final.
