Try adding an explicit second argument to Import telling it which format you want. For example, these all work: Import["http://www.atpworldtour.com/5/en/vault/draws.asp? TournamentID=352&TournamentYear=1993","Plaintext"] Import["http://www.atpworldtour.com/5/en/vault/draws.asp? TournamentID=352&TournamentYear=1993","Text"] Import["http://www.atpworldtour.com/5/en/vault/draws.asp? TournamentID=352&TournamentYear=1993","XMLObject"] -Rob
