Murray's five-set victory over Novak Djokovic at Flushing Meadows finally retired the worn-out statistic of Fred Perry being the last British man to win a major, almost 76 years to the day before the 25-year-old Scot broke through.
"I definitely see him going on to win more (grand slam titles)," Henman told the BBC. "How many he can win only time will tell. The confidence of the Olympics and this will give him so much confidence.
"I said the first one would be the hardest but I think it will be the first of many, I really do."
Murray's appointment of legendary Czech Ivan Lendl has been a trump-card and the World No.3 had already won the Gold Meal at the London Olympics to add to a final at Wimbledon.
"It was certainly his time. The most important aspects were his resilience, both mentally and physically. He remained calm and was able to produce the goods and really it was Djokovic who was struggling at the end," added Henman.
Murray's rather dogged exterior had, until this year, meant that his popularity was no where near the his counterpart's popularity.
His Olympic gold coupled with his tearful speech after his loss to Roger Federer in that Wimbledon final, finally endeared the Scot to the public.
His win at Flushing Meadows meant that the Scot has eclipsed now World No.4 Rafael Nadal in the ATP Rankings, with the Spaniard out of action for several months now.
