Henman was ranked number four in the world in August 2002

Britain's most successful open era player Tim Henman will join BBC Sport's team of experts for coverage of this year's Wimbledon Championships.

"I'm delighted to be joining the BBC team this year," said the 33-year-old former British number one, who retired as a competitor in September 2007.

"It's exciting for me to return to Wimbledon in a non-playing capacity."

He reached number four in the world in 2002 and will work as a commentator and studio analyst from 23 June to 6 July.

BBC TV executive producer of Wimbledon Paul Davies added: "Tim was an incredibly popular player and the success, drama and passion he experienced at Wimbledon has created a unique connection with both the Championship and British tennis fans.

"Returning to SW19 with the BBC team seems the perfect fit and his on-court experience will add a fascinating dimension to our coverage.

"We hope this will be the start of a successful partnership between Tim and the BBC."

Henman won 11 ATP career titles and reached four Wimbledon semi-finals in five years between 1998 and 2002.
