Tim Henman was born on the 6th September 1974 in Oxford to Jane and Tony. He first began to play tennis at the age of 3 and by 5 he had already decided that he wanted to make tennis his career.
After becoming National Junior Champion in both singles and doubles in 1992, Tim Henman joined the Tour in 1993. Over the next few years he rose steadily through the rankings, breaking into the Top 200 in 1994, the Top 100 in 1995 and the Top 30 in 1996. 1996 was his breakthrough year, with Tim becoming British No 1. He reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon and the semi-finals of 6 ATP tournaments.
A seemingly perennial Wimbledon Semi finalist, Tim can boast the most effusive patriotic support in all of tennis. An unassuming chap, Tim is wonderfully articulate when talking of his glorious career to date.
