German qualifier stuns Henman in Miami
MIAMI, Mar 27 (Reuters) Tim Henman was stunned by German qualifier Simon Greul 0-6 6-1 7-5 in the third round of the Nasdaq-100 Open today.
Henman looked in command after sweeping the opening set in 18 minutes as the 24-year-old Greul, a first round winner over Paradorn Srichaphan, won just four points.
The momentum shifted in the second set when the 130th-ranked Greul, who missed four months in 2003 with a knee ligament injury, asserted his game.
Playing in his first Masters Series tournament, the German baffled Henman as he levelled at a set apiece, then recovered from a break down in the third to earn the upset.
Henman produced 26 unforced errors, three less than Greul, who next plays either Andy Roddick or Fernando Verdasco.
