Connecting 7 billion stem cell donors We all look after our loved ones’ futures with savings, pensions, investments and insurance. But what is your wealth without your health? Stem cells are changing and saving lives today. Tomorrow they will save even more. They’re succeeding where other medicines are failing. Now, you can store your stem cells so that you and your loved ones can access them should they ever need treatment. We enable you to store cells from: • Your own blood • Your new born baby’s umbilical cord blood and tissue • Your children’s milk teeth.

INTERVIEW t champ! Naturally talented, Henman won his first tournament aged eight and never looked back “YOU LEARN MORE FROM YOUR LOSSES THAN YOUR WINS. USE IT AS MOTIVATION TO GET BETTER” remember to analyse the things you could have done better. Psychological warfare is rife in tennis. What’s the best way to handle gamesmanship? In an individual sport it’s important to control things you can control, i.e. your preparation and performance. You can’t control what your opponent is doing so don’t be distracted by it. How involved do you get in your own children’s tennis? Not a huge amount. They all play at school and enjoy the game but none of them have aspirations to play the game professionally. What are your top tips for tennis parents? Be supportive but don’t go over the top. Is it quality or quantity when it comes to children’s practice? Quality, definitely. Does a child have to have natural talent to succeed? I think natural talent helps but dedication and application are very important as well. If you’re not lucky enough to have a tennis court, what’s the best way to develop a child’s game at home? A great way to practise is against a wall, it never misses! What’s the best route into the game today? Through a local club where you can hopefully play with friends and have fun. How do you go about choosing a suitable racket? When you’re young, height and strength dictates the racket you should use. It’s also important to get the grip size right. e t Best win? Roger Federer in the 2001 Wimbledon quarter-final Favourite court? Centre Court at Wimbledon Best opponent? Roger Federer Who will lift the 2017 Wimbeldon trophies? Andy Murray and Karolina Pliskova. The Tim Henman Foundation delivers programmes to better the lives of vulnerable young people by focusing on education and health.
