The first known outbreak of Henmania in Britain was in 1996, the year the tabloids dubbed him 'Tiger Tim'.
Victories over Kafelnikov, Sapsford, Milligan and Gustaffson made Henman the first British man to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals since Roger Taylor in 1973. And when England were knocked out of Euro '96, the focus switched to Henman.
Ahead of his quarter-final against Todd Martin, the Sun were moved to rewrite 'Three Lions'. "Three strawberries for a pound," went the new lyrics. "Virginia Wade still grinning, Twenty years of hurt, But now we've started winning." Henman lost 7-6 7-6 6-4.
