Henman Hill or Murray Mound?



Henman Hill or Murray Mound?

The site of British tennis' futile hopes of Wimbledon success!

Location: Aorangi Terrace, All England Club, Wimbledon

Description: Henman Hill is an inclined area in the grounds of the All England Club where the Wimbledon tennis championships are annually held.

The area is officially known as Aorangi Terrace and is named after Aorangi Park, the London New Zealand Rugby Club's ground which was situated on the site until 1981.

The term 'Henman Hill' derives from former British top 10 player 'Tiger' Tim Henman, whose often dramatic matches in his ultimately unsuccessful attempts to claim the Wimbledon title in the late 1990s and early 2000s frequently saw the hill packed with British tennis supporters.

Briefly it was called Rusedski Ridge after Greg Rusedski, and recently we've seen it tentatively re-christened Murray Mound, Mount Murray and Murrayfield (in reference to the stadium in Edinburgh under the same name).
