Did you just upgrade your version of Mathematica?  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"]
