MEET TIM HENMAN
Before Andy Murray was sending Centre Court into a frenzy, a young English fellow called Tim Henman was the talk of British Tennis. He broke onto the scene by knocking the French Open champion Yevgeny Kafelnikov out of Wimbledon at the first round stage in 1996. He would continue all the way to the quarter-finals that year before falling to Todd Martin. Four times Henman reached the semi-finals, and according to Goran Ivanisevic, only God prevented Henman from advancing to the final in 2001 when, in the words of Goran: ‘He sent me the rain’. Henman was no slouch on other surfaces either. He reached the final four in both the French and US Opens in 2004 before eventually calling time on his career in 2007. Since retiring, your best chance of finding Tim is on the golf course. “If I’d known retirement was this good, I’d have done it years earlier,” he quipped recently. But his pride in his game is ever-present, and Henman will be fit and raring to go. Married to Lucy, they have three daughters, Rosie, Olivia, and Grace.
TIE BREAK STRENGTHS
Henman has played on the ATP Champions Tour for five years. The Tour uses a first-to-ten-point tie-break in place of a third set. He will know what to do.
SERVE, VOLLEY, CHIP, CHARGE
Henman doesn’t allow nerves to come into his Tie Break Tennis. He attacks the net, shortens points, and puts pressure on his opponents.
Nothing inspires a player like crowd support, and Tim Henman used the partisan Wimbledon crowd to his advantage for more than a decade. The Royal Albert Hall buzzed for him.
