Pat Rafter will take on Goran Ivanisevic in a repeat of their famous 2001 Wimbledon final and Tim Henman will face Todd Martin in the semifinals of the AEGON Masters Tennis on Saturday.

Henman defeated ATP Champions Tour Rankings leader Thomas Enqvist 6-3, 3-6, 10-7 (Champions’ Tie-Break), whilst Todd Martin qualified after Cedric Pioline retired injured.

“It’s always a pleasure to play at home," said Henman. "This is my first event on the ATP Champions Tour and there’s no better way to start than at the Royal Albert Hall with a crowd like this.”

The 2009 Champion Rafter helped set up the mouth-watering clash with Ivanisevic after his 6-1, 6-7 (4), 10-3 victory over Henri Leconte on Friday.

MARTIN REACHES FINAL FOUR AND BACKS DJOKOVIC FOR 2011 SUCCESS

Novak Djokovic’s former advisor Todd Martin believes that the sky is the limit for the Serbian if he can improve the mental side to his game.

The American, who coached the World No.3 from August 2009 until April this year, was speaking after his quarterfinal victory over Cedric Pioline at the AEGON Masters Tennis in London on Friday.

“The world can be Novak’s oyster, his physical talent is spectacular and he’s got way more fight in him then most people give him credit for,” said Martin.
