Classic Rivalry: Roger Federer vs. Tim Henman

Roger Federer

'Tiger' Tim Henman

Head to Head: 7-6

On Carpet: 0-3

On Hard: 6-2

On Grass: 1-1

In Finals: 2-1

Turned Pro: 1998-1993

These two matched up well, and some may be surprised at their head-to-head record, but Tiger Tim was a bogeyman early in Roger’s career, winning 6 of the first 7 meetings. Both players are stylish with excellent net play, which made for an attractive match up. Tim often was unfairly tagged as an under-achiever, but if you ask Roger, he’ll surely disagree.
