London, May 20(ANI): Former British tennis star Tim Henman has backed World No. 4 Andy Murray to break his Grand Slam duck this year at Wimbledon next month.

"I really think Wimbledon could be Murray's," The Sun quoted Henman, as saying.

"He's improved, got 12 months more experience and has every chance of winning what would be his first Slam," he added.

The 22-year-old was a beaten semi-finalist in 2009, where Andy Roddick went through to the final in four sets.

Murray has reached two Grand Slam finals, finishing runner-up to World No. 1 Roger Federer both times at the 2008 US Open and the Australian Open in January.

His next tournament will be the French Open, which begins on Sunday. (ANI)
