He's playing in a challenger in Ukraine. Any ideas of how far he'll go? Will he be the British no1 by the end of it?

i think he'd have to reach the final to become british no.1 - and the fields not that bad, although obviously as it s a challenger it should be a bit easier for him to win.,.....

well good luck to Greg, it might seem slightly easy.. but there are some tough players.. obviously not Nadal/Federer standard but there's Sanguinetti (not a bad year for him..) then Hanescu which can cause a couple of upsets.. Georg Bastl which can really put up a good fight.. Irakli Labadza - i've watched him play couple of times, not bad at all!!  Think
Greg's got a challenge here.. but all the best!  yahooo

Greg really should get to the final but didn't Hanescu beat Tim in some Grand Slam this year or last year??

According to the ATP site, Time beat Hanescu in the aussi open this year, and that's the only time they've played apparently.

Oh, sorry, I just remember them playing and assume Hanescu won.  I think that Greg only needs to reach to quarters to overtake Tim because at the moment he is ten points behind and no matter what Challenger it is, you get at least 10 points for reaching the quarters.

If he loses in the second round then he will be one point behind Tim

I hope Tim Henman will be Bristish Number 1 end of the year rather than Greg.

Greg is good, but Tim Henman is better.

Exactly. Sorry, I'll never be a Rusedski fan, although heavenly_angel's first hand reports of him have softened my views.

I want Tim to retire as the undisputed British No 1...until a certain Scottish teenager takes on the mantle.
