Probably not! Not that there was ever an official naming ceremony!
The first year Andy played Wimbledon the commentators were calling it Murray Mount and Murray Field and they only stopped because the old crusty Henman fans in the BBC complained. Andy surpassed Henman's achievements some years ago - he hardly needs to win Wimbledon to have a better career - but there are still people who can't let it go. Are you reading this Mr Inverdale?

Henman Hill has a nicer sound than Murray Mount or Murray Field, someone should start a poll on this. So if somehow Alex Bogdanovic won Wimbledon, would Henman Hill be renamed Bogdanovic Hill?

Murrayfield is the official home of Scottish rugby (in Edinburgh) so it's fine by me to stamp a little bit of London with that name!
But if Henman Hill stands out the ages always representing a plucky Brit who wasn't quite good enough then it can stay Henman Hill

I know the English people seem to have a hard time accepting that Andy is Scottish, but if he actually won Wimbledon there might not be a hill standing!
