First set:

Henman 2-3 Tsonga
Henman is trying to attack at every opportunity but so far to no avail. Tsonga shows he can come to the net as well, finishing off the game with a volley.

Henman 2-2 Tsonga
Tsonga gets the first break point of the match but our Tim comes through the test with some solid serving.

"Dare I say Henman looks the better player already?"

Henman 1-2 Tsonga
Now it's Tsonga's turn to enjoy a straightforward service game.

Henman 1-1 Tsonga
Great start for Henman, winning his first service game to love. The Briton zaps down a 124mph serve that has Tsonga scrambling for cover.

Henman 0-1 Tsonga
There's a bit of a breeze swirling around the Louis Armstrong Stadium as Tsonga begins erratically, finally winning the game with a beefy crosscourt forehand.

Tim Henman is attempting to prolong his Grand Slam career against world number 74 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

The 22-year-old Frenchman is on the rise, having reached the fourth round at Wimbledon.

In contrast, Henman, who announced earlier this month that he would retire in September, has had a nightmare season.

The 32-year-old has been plagued by a back problem and has won just six matches on the men's tour in 2007.

But he managed to upset Dmitry Tursunov in the first round - can he survive to fight another day?
