Starts his 13th Wimbledon campaign still bearing the millstone of being the home nation's best hope of a men's champion since 1936.

Henman's record at the All England Club is one of remarkable consistency yet he has always fallen short of breaking his grand slam duck and there is little to suggest this year will be any different.

Possesses the best first volley in the game but has recently started to question his reliance on serve-volleying because he believes the grasscourt game is slower than it used to be.

Expect to see him vary his tactics more than usual, though the results are likely to be the same: good but not great.
