Top-ranked Federer, Mauresmo advance while Henman falls
MIAMI, March 28 (AFP): World number ones Roger Federer and Amelie Mauresmo advanced with ease here Monday at a 6.9 million-dollar WTA and ATP hardcourt tournament while Britain's Tim Henman suffered a most baffling loss.
Swiss star Federer crushed Germany's Tommy Haas 6-1, 6-3 in a third-round match while France's Mauesmo, who like Federer won an Australian Open title in January, eliminated Serbian Ana Ivanovic 7-5, 6-2 to reach the quarter-finals.
Britain's Tim Henman fell to German qualifier Simon Greul 0- 6, 6-1, 7-5 in their third round match. Henman dominated the first set but was overpowered in the second and sent packing in the third.
