Henman on guard for Masters clash; TENNIS.

TENNIS: British number one Tim Henman expects a tough time in the next round of the Italian Masters in Rome when he faces Slovakian Dominik Hrbaty.

Henman set up a meeting with Hrbaty after a straight-sets win over Chilean Nicolas Massu.

Henman won by a comfortable 6-3 6-2 margin against double Olympic champion Massu in the second round but is not expecting to have it easy against Hrbaty.

"He is a guy that is always going to compete hard," said Henman of Hrbaty. "We practised a bit before the tournament and he seemed like he was playing well," Henman said.

"If I can put pressure on his second serve and keep the points short that will favour me."
