Will Henman ever be back in top 10?

No - but could still be top 20 if he continues this year as he finished last year (in terms of form). But that is unlikely unfortunately, given how long he has been out...and there aren't many chances for him to realistically win lots of points before the grass season :sad:

No chance at all, he won't even make the top 20. I would be surprised if he even made the top 30.

He'll have retired within the next couple of months.

He can make top 30 with a strong performance next week...and if he can get a seeding for the 2 American masters tournaments, he can possbly earn a few more pts there...the gap to top 30 isn't that big.

If he gets off to a good start, I don't expect him to retire this year, yet alone the next couple of months!

I'd expect him to call it a day at at the end of 2008, or at Wimbledon that year. If he gets us back into the World Group, I think he'd like one more shot at a World Group DC win for GBR as well.

If he can reach another RG SF.

No he won't make Top10 , but he is able to come back to Top20 for sure if body will allow him to do so

Corey Feldman

No chance, his body cant cope with the demands needed to reach the top10.

That's exactly my thinking.

Tim doesn't win a lot of titles so to get back into the top 10 he'd either have to go on a terrific run through a slam, which seems unlikely nowadays, or get to a lot of SFs and Fs week in week out at TMS events - also unlikely. He might make it back to the top 20 but from there on it's a steep curve up to the top 10.

Corey Feldman

At this rate, i think he will do really well to reach one more Wimbledon QF and win 1 more title somewhere, before he calls it quits.
so Gl to you Timothy.

In all seriousness i hope tim can play some good tennis when he comes back. His best days are clearly behind him but he has always been a guy ive liked to watch. Best of luck Timbo.

Unfortunately not. he has the game but not the body anymore.

UncleZeke

not even a chance.

I want him to win Queens this year and get to QF of Wimby at least. The he should call it a day. That would be great.

I don't see that happening.

he will very soon have a worthwhile existence touring schools teaching children why they need to pay attention to dentists; :toothy:
tim - fangs for the memories!

If Ljubicic, Boredo and Davydenko can, so can Henman.

Burrow
02-25-2007, 07:24 PM
All I can do is pray, I would love him to get back to the top 10. I think he is one of the few real gentleman on tour, but he will probably meet roger in every second round of a grand slam , grrrrrr

Nah ... but I hope he plays well at Wimbledon.

Sadly, this won't happen.

Maybe top 20 as people have said, but even if that happens he won't be there for long!

02-26-2007, 10:59 AM
I'm going to be different and say he will make the top 10 again. He can clearly still play some excellent tennis, and he's far from finished.

However, it's all down to how his body holds up.

Don't count him out yet!

He's still got the game but has he got the consistency he showed a few years ago?
Firstly he has to start playing tournaments! I think he will re-enter top 20 but top 10 is a big ask
Go Tim! :yeah:

Will he make it to the GB Davis Cup doubles team might be a more realistic target? Assuming the likes of Murray and Djokovic might make it into the top 10, name the 3rd player Henman is going to force out of the top 10!

And there are others with far more realistic chances of getting there before Henman eg Berdych, Hewitt, Safin, Gasquet, Baghdatis, etc.
