Nadal wins RG - beats Federer 1-6 6-1 6-4 7-6(4)
"It really annoys me when I hear the criticism that Tim has to suffer.
"He was No 4 in the world but could anybody really say that David Beckham or Gary Lineker or Michael Owen were ever the No 4 footballer in the world? They were not.
"Outside the tennis world, Tim has never received the credit he deserves. His record at Wimbledon is amazing - four semi-finals there, plus two others.
"But it seems that if Tim Henman doesn't win Wimbledon, he is a failure. Well, he is not a failure in my book. He is a supremely talented, supremely successful tennis player. We are lucky to have him." - John Lloyd
