It's actually 5 for Federer, as he beat old-man ''Tiger'' Tim Henman in 2006 to put a gloss on prime Tim's 100% Wimbledon HTH record against him in the epic ''Fedman/Henerer'' rivalry.

It's a shame that Roger vultured so many wins against the post-peak Henmeister, because, at one stage, our Timbo was schooling him 6-1 in the HTH, before age caught up with him.

Whilst whispers about Roger's potential GOAThood were running amok amongst the tennis world, Tim was dismissively straight-setting the GOAT-elect at Bercy and Rotterdam.

:cool:

Anyhoo, good post. The 1980s/early 90s was some seriously good times. God bless YouTube.

A for effort but C for execution. Why is beating Sampras at the FO in 89 and Connors in 91 great?
