Tim Henman may well have played his last singles match as a professional. His demolition of his replacement Croation opponent, Roko Karanusic, was a fitting reminder of what the tennis-watching public and the British Davis Cup team will be missing from now on. I shan’t bang on about his startling achievements again, you’ve heard it all before. What I will say is that I’m delighted he wants to stay in the game and help nurture new talent.
A great man, a great British sportsman and a great ambassador for tennis. Knight him immediately.
