Hopefully he can win a couple of matches before he leaves. :awww:

Best of luck with your retirement, Tim, and thanks so much for what you have put into British tennis. :bigclap: A career to be very proud of.

Henman has played many great matches and is one of the last true exponents of serve and volley tennis at least for the time being... *pauses and muses*

I still cheer for Croatia overall but I would like to see Tim to win one match.In 01 at his Wimbly match I cheered for Goran but I felt sorry about his loss.And I really thought he would have beaten Coria and would have won RG 04.Sadly it didn't happen. :sad:
I've never expected that he will leave so soon,surely he will be missed.But the good side is he doesn't have to face huge pressure and he has more time to take care of his family. :)

Expected really.

Shame that Tim never managed to win Wimbledon. But he had a good career, reached grand slam semi finals, represented GBR in Davis Cup and won the Paris Masters (although its the easiest one to win).

Good luck in life without tennis Tim :)

But I don't think he will win a match anymore :hug:

Expected and correct decision, but still a sad one. I think I just missed the period when he played his best tennis; late 90's/early 00's.

Tim enjoyed a good career. 6 grand slam semis, 4 more quarter-finals, reaching no. 4 in the world rankings, winning a masters series title (coming through a tough draw) as well as claiming 10 other titles, plus earning an olympic silver medal represents a very good career. Out of all the men that have ever become professional tennis players, a very large percentage of people from that group would trade career accomplishments with him.

Good luck in your retirement Tim :hug: He may not ever have won Wimbledon, but he did consistently well there over years, in the face of the most amazing media pressure. I wish him all the best with his wife and family in his new life beyond tennis.

It is probably now, but not in the days when he won it, all the top guys took part in the 2003 event IIRC.

In fact checking the draw all the high ranked players except Agassi (who rarely bothered with Paris anyway) and Hewitt (who also never played it much) took part. Safin was ranked in the 20s at the time and not in the top 10, but all of the top 10 bar Agassi and Hewitt played.
