Tim Henman - this year's "British hope" for Wimbledon - has launched his own Web site on the first day of the tennis tournament.

Visit TimHenman.org to find out how Tim's doing (gone through to round two by winning 6-1, 6-1, 6-1 this morning). Get his great tips on how to play better. Or just have a chat with Tim. It's all written in the first person, causing us to wonder how he has time for it all - shouldn't he be out training rather than writing pieces for his site?

Still, it's an excuse he can use when he's knocked out and we look forward to 2002 being the year that a British man wins Wimbledon. After all, it was only 61 years ago that Fred Perry pulled it off.

According to Tim, "I've been planning this for a long time, so it's great to see my Web site go live on the first day of my favourite tournament". Has he? Well if he's called Jason Goodall, he's had the .org domain since June last year. Has the Henman Corporation bought it off Jason or is Jason something to do with Tim? We don't know - Jason won't pick up his phone.

"I always strive to be the best at whatever I do and I'm no different when it comes to the Internet, so I hope you'll enjoy browsing the stacks of information you'll have access to inside," says Tim. Why then, didn't he register TimHenman .com, .net or .co.uk? Maybe he's offering to buy them too, because there's nothing on any of them at the moment, despite being registered in 1999.

Anyway, God speed Tim. If all goes well, it won't be until the quarter-final that Pete Sampras knocks you out.

Incidentally, the official Web site for Wimbledon can be found here. It's not bad actually. ®
