Tennis: Tim Henman crashed out of the Masters Series event in Rome on Thursday after Argentina's Mariano Zabaleta stormed back from a set down to seal his place in the quarter-finals.

Zabaleta won 3-6 6-3 6-2 to advance to a last-eight meeting at the Foro Italico with either Nicolas Massu or Marat Safin. Henman broke on his first opportunity to take a 2-0 lead in the first set and the remaining games went with serve as Henman saw out the set 6-3.The tables turned at the start of the second, however, and once Zabaleta found his range there was only going to be one winner.
