  Worksheet: henman hopes for wimbledon win
Updated 22 June 2004, 14.40
Tim Henman is still searching for a Grand Slam win
tim henman is getting ready for another attempt to win his first grand slam tennis event, as wimbledon starts.

henman has always played really well at wimbledon but has never got further than the semi-finals.

But he was in excellent form at the french open recently and that should give him loads of confidence for his home grand slam event.

Injury has ruled out a number of big stars, including andre agassi, justine henin-hardenne and kim clijsters.

greg rusedski will also be at the event, but his form has been so bad that he will start the event as British number three.

arvind parmar will overtake him as great britain's second best player when the new rankings are revealed on monday.

jamie delgado is also in the first round at the all england club, reaching the main draw after qualifying.

In the women's draw, elena baltacha and anne keovathang will be among those flying the flag for britain.

They'll be hoping to stop top seed serena williams from winning a third successive women's singles title.

Vocabulary:

Grand Slam = a major tennis tournament
