Henman Hill
Started by: elizabeth (5306)  Report abuse
It made me annoyed that they still call it that he has gone and never was very much ,so why do the not call it Murray Hill I was so sorry he lost and he is a very good player he knocks Heman into a cocked hat just a thought where did that saying come from --a cocked hat

Before Henman it was simply known as The Hill. the traditionalists still refer to it as such.

an appropiate name would be "the hill of tears"
how many brit hopefulls have been witnessed from here, bite the dust??

Why would anyone name a hill after someone who hasn't won a Singles title at Wimbledon?

reflects the hard slog to the top o ya game liz.

It's a natural slope in the ground. A large screen is placed at the top so the slope permits a sizeable number to watch the matches.
If you are wondering why the people would want to watch a screen inside Wimbledon. It's because the better matches take place on centre and number one courts but most of the spectators only have admission to the many lesser courts.
The majority of centre and number one court tickets go to members, debenture holders and the marquee packages.
I was very fortunate in being able to go with my wife for 14 years because the company I worked for had a marquee there.
