Hawk-Eye on Henman's serve
Tim Henman's poor service hampered him early on against Jarkko Nieminen in the first round at Wimbledon.

Here Hawk-Eye helps shows how the gradual improvement helped secure his 3-6 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 7-5 6-2 victory.

Henman's 1st-set service stats

Henman's first-serve success percentage was just 63% in set one.

Henman's 2nd-set service stats

An even lower first-serve success rate at 60% and he's still trying to mix it up with serves down the middle

Henman's 3rd-set service stats

He's started to target Nieminen's backhand on his first serve, on which he's winning 71% of the points

Henman's 4th-set service stats

A far more consistent depth overall gives his best first-serve success rate of 71% and no break points offered to the Finn

Henman's 5th-set service stats

The first-serve success rate slips but he's finding the corners even with his second serves as his confidence rises
