Tim Henman's Olympic challenge was blown away on Sunday night by a howling gale and the more precise game of Jiri Novak of the Czech Republic.
 

The British number one and number five seed became the first big seed to to fall in the men's draw when he slumped to a 6-3 6-3 defeat.

Henman, who won a silver medal at the 1996 Games while partnering Neal Broad in the doubles, never came close to mastering the trickiest of conditions.

Even the prospect of representing his country, which usually brings the best out of this season's French Open semi-finalist and Wimbledon quarter-finalist, could not rouse Henman as the errors simply streamed from his racket.

The sparse crowd tried to lift him with sporadic chants of 'Henman' as half a dozen or so Union Jacks billowed in the gale, but Henman was unable to find any consistency on his serve or groundstrokes.

Too bad for timy, this field is very deep, so its not surprising that a top seed falls early.

I was expecting him to do a bit better than that. Thing is you come to expect it now with Henman, there is no consistancy with him.
