Default Henman ends his career on a high by putting GB back in World Group!

Henman/J Murray def. Cilic/Zovko 4-6 6-4 7-6(3) 7-5

Fantastic from Tim, he was the best player on the court. Murray didn't play as well as he can, I think the occasion got to him.

Such a shame to see Tim go, but a great way to finish and Tim hits a beautiful angled forehand winner to end his career

Thanks for the memories and all you've done for British tennis Tim, we'll miss you

Timothy Henry Henman!!!!

Congratulations Great Britain!

.. and Croatia, it's a shame they couldn't have fielded their strongest team. Cilic, Karanusic and Zovko did very well, though, given the circumstances.

I second- or third- this request.

Farewell Tim- he was always fun to watch on the court and had a great funny personality off the court. Glad to hear that he will still be involved with tennis in come capacity.
