Before Tim Henman had won the hearts of British tennis fans with his string of near-misses at Wimbledon, he landed himself in hot water in 1995 for angrily hitting a ball at a ball girl during a doubles match. The ball struck the girl on the face and Henman was disqualified from the tournament along with his partner, Jeremy Bates. He later apologised and planted a kiss on the girl's cheek that one tabloid newspaper dubbed: 'the Hen-peck'.
