Tim Henman will meet Brett Steven in the second round of the Pilot Pen International in New Haven, Connecticut after his amazing escape against Daniel Vacek. The British No 1 was one set, 4-4 and 0-40 down on his serve before coming through to beat the Czech 4-6, 7-6, 6-4.

"After the way I have played in the last couple of weeks I wanted to make sure I played more consistently," Henman said. "I preferred to stay back more and give myself bigger margins of error."

British No 2 Greg Rusedski, within three places of Henman in the world rankings at No 24, faces America's Jeff Salzenstein.

Next year's Wimbledon prices for each day, from Monday, June 22, to the final day on Sunday, July 5, have been increased by one or two pounds, except for ``People's Saturday''.

This is the middle Saturday where most prices have risen from pounds 32 to pounds 33 for Centre Court seats, but an additional number of Centre Court seats will be sold at the reduced price of pounds 25.
