  Tim Henman
Updated 28 May 2002, 17.13
Tim Henman
Date of birth: 6 September 1974
Nationality: British

When did he start playing?
Henman started playing tennis when he was about two years old, and from the age of 10 was part of a training group run by former British tennis star David Lloyd.

He left school at 16 with 10 GCSEs before beginning a tennis career.

Is he any good?
Tim Henman is Britain's best tennis player, and has been for a number of years.

What are his strengths?
Henman plays some of the best volleys in tennis, and combined with his excellent serve, make him a very good player.

What isn't he so good at?
In the past he's had problems with his concentration, sometimes throwing away match-winning positions when the pressure is on.

Does he win many games?
Henman wins lots of matches, but doesn't turn those wins into titles.

Every year he seems to save his best performances for Wimbledon, but never quite manages to go all the way.

Are there any other good British players?
Henman has enjoyed a battle with Greg Rusedski in recent years to decide who is Britain's number one.

While Rusedski was once a US Open finalist, Henman's consistency makes him Britain's best.
