With every year that passes it is widely thought that Tim Henman's chances of landing the holy grail diminish, but in fact little has changed in the last few years.

He remains the best volleyer in the world, he still lacks that vital penetration on serve, and he is still rated behind a handful of the world's best players.

Despite this, there is every reason to be confident of another run to the last eight, and from there much depends on the draw.

Last year, Henman missed a good opportunity when falling tamely to the talented but unseeded Mario Ancic in the quarters, with Andy Roddick waiting in the semis.

His form this year has been patchy at best and he made a disappointingly early exit to Thomas Johansson at Queen's.

The Briton will be desperate to get back to his best at what remains his best chance of Grand Slam success.

However, at some stage he will almost certainly have to beat at least one of Lleyton Hewitt and Roger Federer, and there is no sign that he can make that breakthrough.
