Henman - bowing out in New York
Tim Henman
Henman headed to the US Open, his final Grand Slam tournament, in poor form, having won only five matches all season.

However, the 32-year-old shrugged off worries about his injured back to produce a vintage performance against big-hitting Dmitry Tursunov, who had won five of their previous six meetings.

He bowed out to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, a player 10 years his junior, and admitted: "It's a reflection of why I'm retiring. Tsonga is a classic modern player. The way he serves, the way he hits his forehand, his athleticism. It's phenomenal. That's where it's become harder and harder for me to compete."
