Henman held his nerve to give Great Britain a commanding 2-0 lead after the opening singles rubbers in their World Group play-off tie with Croatia at Wimbledon on Friday.
The 33-year-old beat late replacement Roko Karanusic, who took the place of Ivan Ljubicic after illness struck the Croatian No. 1 earlier in the day.
Henman built on the lead that Andy Murray had given the hosts when he beat Marin Cilic 3-6 6-4 6-2 4-6 6-3 in the opening match of the tie.
Murray, desperate not to let Henman down at his send-off, will feature in the opening rubber against Marin Cilic, and Henman will then take on Ivan Ljubicic. Murray will partner his older brother, Jamie, in tomorrow's doubles rubber against Ljubicic and Lovro Zovko, and, in Sunday's reverse singles, Murray is scheduled to face Ljubicic with Henman to follow against Cilic.
