TIM HENMAN: That's a good question (smiling). I don't book it. Yeah, I think we're all right. Normally, you make sure that you're booking in for a good period of time. But, you know, I spent plenty of weekends in Paris, i.e., the weekend before, but not the middle weekend (laughter).
So, yeah, I'm enjoying myself, I'm playing well. You know, it's good. It's another positive. You know, to have been in the third round four times before, and now to have got through to the fourth round, that's a positive. Why stop there. I feel good about my game and we'll keep seeing what damage I can do.
Q. Did your grandfather Billington serve and volley on clay?
TIM HENMAN: I don't know.
Q. Because he got to the fourth round.
TIM HENMAN: Did he?
Q. In '39.
TIM HENMAN: Did he really? I didn't know that.
Q. In fact, in '39, the fourth round was the quarterfinals. JP was there. JP told me he was there.
TIM HENMAN: Yeah (laughter).
Q. He beat a guy, a Hungarian who later on in '47 won the title here.
TIM HENMAN: Did he really?
TIM HENMAN: I'm feeling the pressure already (smiling).
Yeah, I honestly didn't know that. I know he made third round of Wimbledon a few times, but I didn't know that he had such clay court prowess.
Q. Success runs in the family.
TIM HENMAN: Absolutely. I hope that I can surpass that, beat that.
Q. Do you think there will be people back in England that will be worrying actually because you're doing so well here, and they're concerned about Wimbledon basically? >
TIM HENMAN: Probably, yeah, probably (smiling).
Q. But you're not thinking that way at all, obviously?
TIM HENMAN: No, no, no. No, I don't think you -- you can never complain about winning. Certainly, you know, we're talking about a Grand Slam here. I think the way that I adapt and the way that I feel on a grass court, it doesn't take me too long to feel pretty comfortable.
I'm happy to stay as long as I can here, as long as my hotel will have me (smiling).
