London:

Top seed Lleyton Hewitt and Britain's Tim Henman, seeded three, both made it through top the last 16 of the $860,000 Stella Artois Championships at Queen's Club in London on Tuesday. Hewitt, the world number two, had to come from a set down to overcome Xavier Malisse of Belgium 6-7, 7-5, 7-5 while Henman, a three-time finalist at Queen's, beat Robby Ginepri of the United States 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 6-1. The new French hope, teenager Richard Gasquet, had a much easier time of it, putting out Janko Tipsarevec of Serbia-Montenegro in straight sets. Henman arrived at Queen's last year having just reached the semi-finals of the French Open, but was much fresher after being knocked out in the second round at Roland Garros. Henman will be hoping that he can retain that form from the final set into this year's Wimbledon championships.
