Andy Murray will take on Tim Henman in the first round of the Swiss Indoors tournament today not before 2:30BST PM - discuss here.

BBC online coverage from 2:25PM BST: Video Stream / Radio Five Live

As Andy Murray prepares to take on Tim Henman in one of the most important matches of the year for British tennis, the BBC have compared the two players ahead of Wednesday's mouth-watering clash.

BBC Reports:
Henman is widely regarded as the finest volleyer in the men's game and for much of his career his favourite surface has been grass.

In contrast, Murray's game is built on the solid groundstrokes he honed on the clay courts of Barcelona. And although he isn't yet in Henman's class as a volleyer, Murray is increasing the frequency of his forays into the net with notable success.

Murray is the highest climber in the ATP rankings this year. The Scot was ranked outside the world's top 400 before Wimbledon, but is now 70 in the world.

Yet while Murray is very much in the ascendancy, Henman has been in decline this year. He finished 2004 ranked sixth in the world after reaching the semi-finals at the French and US Opens, but this year has been a struggle.

From the beeb website. the article is just a mishmash of ones theyve written before, apart from this bit.....

Murray said: "It is a match I'm looking forward to. I have great respect for Tim as a man and as a tennis player.

"He has a great career and he will be quite a challenge to play him."

I've just looked on the BBC, BBC2, BBC sport web sites and the Radio Times and there's nothing about the change. I guess I'll just tune in at 2.45 and hope for the best... Smile

Evil or Very Mad  It'd better be.

But just in case, I'm setting the vid for Eurosport and the DVD Recorder for BBC2.

I am so mad I have appointments tomorrow afternoon. Grrrrrrrrr. :twisted:
