Tim Henman's season is over after withdrawing from next month's Shanghai Masters because of a rib injury.

The British number one fractured cartilage during his first-round loss to Scotland's Andy Murray in Basel.

:?  Part of me hopes Tim will retire after next years' Wimbledon.

He's been such a fabulous player for Britain for the last 10 years, and while he's never had that rare edge that a true champion needs, he's been great for the game.

This year has been a nightmare for him. With two young children and permanent injury, I hope he puts family first and takes some time out for himself (with all the squillions he's made)  8)

I think its time for Tim to call it a day, he has had a great ten years, but i dont see him as one of those players who will want to hang around the 40 mark while hes out every few weeks with injuries.

I think Tim will keep playing until He's no longer British number one and then try and go with a bang at Wimbledon.

Tim Henman admits he does not know when he will be able to begin his preparations for the new tennis season.

The Briton withdrew from last week's Paris Masters having fractured the cartilage of his first rib.

"As it's a cartilage problem it's a bit more difficult to say with any certainty when it will heal completely.

Not good at all... I want to see him do much better next year than he did this. Think

If the year starts off as bad as this one did and he continues falling down the rankings, I'm not sure if it will be too long before he stops no .
