Will Tim Henman win Wimbledon this year?

With RG fast approaching and the grass court season is almost around the corner after that. Will this year be Henman's year and he finally gets the trophy he craves...

It would be great if Tim could finally win Wimbledon, however I doubt it.
He always get a kind draw and struggles through them, giving too many rollercoaster matches in the process until he loses to a younger and fresher opponent. 2001 was his best chance to win and the rain cost him.

Yup, 2001 was his best chance.

2002 was a great chance too but Hewitt was in his way. Really he had the perfect draw apart from that horrible match-up.

Re: Will Tim Henman win Wimbledon this year?

Nah, Henman doesn't like grass anymore, he prefers clay [so he said recently at one of the clay TMSes].

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Re: Will Tim Henman win Wimbledon this year?

Its hard to see anyone challenging Federer at wimbledon this year.. or for the next few years really..
at very best, the final... if he's not in a Federer or 100% Hewitt half.

Re: Will Tim Henman win Wimbledon this year?

he wont. but i hope he does win one sometime! there were a couple of missed opportunities along the way, but realistically, this year would be too tough for tim the toolman to steal a win

Re: Will Tim Henman win Wimbledon this year?

Probably not, although I wish he had at some point in his career, I think his window of opportunity has come and gone.

But geez, RG hasn't even started yet... let's not rush...

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Will Tim Henman win Wimbledon this year?

No. Federer, Hewitt, AND Roddick would be too much for him and they are the favorites. I know Henman plays well against Roddick but I just don't see him beating any of these guys on the grass. I'd like for Henman to do well though but I doubt he even makes the QF's this year.
