TIM HENMAN: THE HAROLD STASSEN OF WIMBLEDON?….The Guardian asks today about British tennis hero Tim Henman, “Can he do it?”

(Looking at the current draw, he really ought to at least get to the finals this year. But he probably won’t. The Brits may be hard on their sports icons, but they seem to be remarkably clear-eyed and resigned to the truth too.)
