So we have asked our fans to come up with 5 questions to ask Tim Henman, Goran Ivanisevic and Lindsay Davenport. The best ones will be selected and answered! Heres the response we got?

Q: If you could give one piece of coaching advice to any player, what would it be?

Q: Did you ever smash a racket during a match?

Q: Many talk of introducing a fifth slam into the calendar, some say Miami, Ion Tiriac says Madrid while others say Indian Wells. Is it time to rethink the tennis schedule?

Q: Tennis players have been playing about the length of the season for decades. But we now have a situation in which the season is shortened yet many top players go and play exhibitions for big money? Do you think such events should be banned?

Q: Would you be my doubles partner?

Q: Did you ever hit your doubles partner with a serve or groundstroke? Did they speak to you after?

Q: Gael Monfils revealed in his match against Fabio Fognini at Roland Garros that he tanked the forth set as he wanted to conserve energy and serve first in the final decider. Have you ever tanked a set  on purpose and then failed to win the decider?

Q: The tours have now introduced time penalties for players between points. One of the biggest offenders is Rafael Nadal who always gets the warnings but never the serve or point penalties. What is the best way to police this as most umpires seem scared Nadal will growl at them!?

Q: I love my tennis shoes and I must have the latest models. How many pairs of shoes did you go through a season?

Q: Were you ever caught short on court?

Q: What would you say is the most important asset for a budding tennis player?

Q:Goran: When you think went off for the rain break in Wimbledon semi final?

Q:Tim, Did you ever feel weighed down by the annual Wimbledon pressure?

Q: Lindsay, which current players do you enjoy watching most?

Q: Tim do you find it hard watching Andy accomplish, what you came so close to winning so many times?

Q: Goran, the likes of you, Sampras, Kraijeck built your games around huge serves. Do you think that you would be able to compete in the modern game and will big serves ever have a place in tennis again?

Q: Lindsay, there hasnt been a successful American talent to take on Serena since yourself. Do you rate Sloane Stephens or Taylor Townsend?

Q: Tim you had a great rivalry with Greg. The LTA has invested heavily in the last decade and yet we have not yet seen a stream of players to support Andy, Heather and Laura. Why do you think that is and what can we do to change it?

Q: Tim, tennis is a difficult sport to access for a large proportion of children because their parents cant afford the cost of coaching, courts, equipment and club fees. Its much less costly to join a football club. Are we in danger of tennis being a sport only for the middle class and above and is there anything we can do to make it more affordable so not to miss out on future stars?

Q: Goran, Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray have dominated the rankings and Grand slams for years now. Who from the current crop of young players do you predict will really make it big in the near future?
