I agree, it's definitely Henman. I still remember how agonisingly close he was to reaching the 2001 W final - he won the 3rd set 6-0 against Ivanisevic to go 2-1 sets up and was wiping the floor with him. Then of course, the rain set in for two days, and Goran squeaked through to the final (4th set went to a tie-break where Tim was 2 or 3 points from winning the match).

By the way, the previous record for most semis without being in a final was held by Jiro Satoh, a Japanese player from the 1930s, who reached five.
