At Last, A Winning Farewell From All England

Tim Henman finally got to walk away from the All England Club a winner. After 15 years of brutal battles in front of a nation starved for a tennis hero, Henman can smile and waive, knowing that he gave his all for the people of Great Britain.

Even though Henman never won his nation's coveted Slam, the Brit gave his home fans a lot to cheer about. Even this year, in winning just one match, Henman made week one of Wimbledon a delight - and for many - a memory worth bringing up time and time again.
