Henman Hill or Murray Mound?

The area where fans at the All England Club watch Wimbledon on a giant screen was originally labelled as Henman Hill on Google Maps.

It was renamed Murray Mound after Andy Murray won his title last year, but it was changed back - possibly by a disgruntled Tim Henman fan - during the last two days.

A spokesman for Google said the changes are being made by users of Map Maker, a tool where people can add places to Google Maps.

He said: "This is a rare example where a place of interest has a number of different names by which it's known locally.

"The name Murray Mound was added on the day Andy won Wimbledon last year, but was changed over this weekend to Henman Hill.

"If you search Google Maps though, both names will get you to the same place."

The official name for the location is Aorangi Terrace.
