2004 Jul 10 - Olympics: Henman injury progress

Tim Henman may be struggling with a back injury before the start of the Olympics on 15 August but he remains optimistic of his chances of winning Olympic gold.

Tim said:

"I'd be lying if I said I haven't dreamt of winning the gold so that's what I'm going over there to try and do.

"I've had a problem with a stiff back. But with constant attention I don't think it will hinder my performances.

"I've had it looked at and there doesn't seem to be much I can do apart from continue to stretch it out.

"I've incorporated some extra strengthening into my off-court programme, which should help in the medium to long term.

"Obviously I'd always prefer to be fully fit but that's seldom the case.

"I've got used to trying to perform as well as I can while carrying a few niggles, as do most players, and hopefully it won't have a detrimental effect on my performance."
