London: 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.
