Tim Henman has been beaten in four sets by tournament favourite Guillermo Coria at Roland Garros. Coria will now play fellow Argentine Gaston Gaudio
in Sunday's final.
Tim Henman's much-anticipated French Open semi-final clash with Guillermo Coria got under way after a slight rain delay this afternoon. The players
managed to complete their warm-up before the rain began to fall just as the match was about to start.
However, they were back in the locker room just 10 minutes before the match was able to begin. The players knew the eventual winner would play Gaston
Gaudio in the final. He had earlier beaten David Nalbandian.
The Briton raised hopes of a momentous upset when he took the first set, and led 4-2 in the second. But Coria's fighting spirit saw him break back and
he then turned the screw, winning the next 13 games.
However, Henman lifted himself to recover from 0-3 down in the fourth and served for the set, but Coria fought back again to win 3-6 6-4 6-0 7-5.
