TIM Henman feels Ryan Peniston is facing his toughest test yet at Queen’s this afternoon.

Peniston will face world number 48 Filip Krajinovic in the quarter finals of the cinch Championships.

And former world number four Henman told Echosport the Great Wakering based Peniston is in for a tougher match than against top seed Casper Ruud.

“Of course Ryan can win but he's a massive underdog and this is his toughest match by a long way,” said Henman.

“This is a much tougher grass court match than Ruud.”

Peniston, who played at Southend Lawn in his youth, beat world number five Ruud at the start of the week before seeing off Francisco Cerundolo to set up today's clash in the last eight.

And Henman, who now covers tennis for BBC Sport, has been incredibly impressed by Peniston's play this week. 

"Mentally the way he’s dealt with the situation with no experience at this level has been very impressive," said Henman.

"He’s been out on centre court here and had two big wins which have been great.

"Hopefully this can be a real stepping stone and a springboard for more good results for him in the future.
