Tennis: Tim up in battle of the Brits as Rusedski sinks.

TIM HENMAN beat the wind, rain and Greg Rusedski to storm into the third round of the Hamburg Masters yesterday.

Henman hasn't lost to his fellow-Brit since 1998 and he stretched his run with a 7-6 (7-3) 6-4 victory on clay.

But he said: 'Greg made it tough for me and I really had to raise my game.

'It was very difficult. It was chucking it down - it's the pinnacle of our tour and it's not acceptable.'

Henman now meets Juan Ignacio Chela, of Argentina.

#Scottish Open champion Alan Mackin was shocked 7-5 6-3by Matthew Smith in round two of the British Satellite Series event in Newcastle.

Colin Fleming reached the quarter-finals, beating Aussie Joshua Crowe 6-0 6-4.
