Murray has failed to be truly tested so far at SW19 - winning all of his matches in comfortable fashion on his way to the fourth round.
"It's been an ideal first week really," Henman told Sky Sports News. "He's been playing very well, three sets to love on every occasion, and having everyone witness the upsets, big players losing, it can be a little bit disconcerting.
"It was so important that he really concentrated on his job and he's done exactly that. And the way the schedule has worked out is absolutely perfect."
Murray will play Russian 20th seed Mikhail Youzhny on Monday for a place in the quarter-finals.
