Tim Henman played the last Slam match of his 14-year career before adoring fans in New York, falling to Muhammad Ali...ahem...Jo-Wilfired Tsonga in four sets. It's been an entertaining career for the man they call Tiger who for years had his own hill at Wimbledon.
Not always treated with respect by the British Press, Tim handled well the weight of expecation and hope of a nation desperate for a champion every time he took the court on the sport's most hallowed lawns.
It's not hyperbole to say that no tennis player, male or female, in recent history has faced more pressure to win Wimbledon than Timmy. His exquisite serve-and-volley game got him close, but it wasn't meant to be. Ironic that his career ends without a single title on grass.
But he's proud of his 495-274 match record, a Top 10 finish in five of his professional years, and his 11 titles, including a Masters shield and six Slam semifinals.
We'll miss you. May the road rise up to meet you....
