Now that the Qualies of Wimbledon are underway, the tennis world is once again abuzz with the excitement of a Grand Slam Tournament. With the release of the main draw coming soon, there should be some great matches even in just the first round. Make sure to keep an eye out for these 5 singles players who are sure to provide matches that you can’t miss (oh and did I mention they are all very good looking?)
This argentine boasts a huge forehand, and a great smile. In 2009 he won the U.S. Open becoming the 1st and only man to beat both Federer and Nadal in the same Grand Slam. Unfortunately, soon after he was sidelined with a wrist injury. But now he’s back, and better than ever. With a 31-8 record in 2011, we can expect to see great things from him this year at Wimbledon
As the youngest player in the top 100 rankings, 20 year-old Bulgarian Dimitrov is definitely someone to look out for this year. Turning pro at age 16, many people have compared him to Roger Federer, citing similarities in not only their game, but the young age at which they turned pro. Other people believe it is Karma for Dimitrov to become the next big thing as Sampras was born in 71, Federer was born in 81 and Dimitrov was born in 91. It could be karma, or it could be his charming good looks, either way I will be keeping a close eye on Dimitrov throughout the tournament.
This lefty is the top ranked player from Brazil with a current ranking of #29. Last year at Wimbledon he fell in the third round to Soderling, so this year he is back for revenge. With a big forehand and heavy topspin (and an awezome name), we will hopefully see Bellucci controlling a lot of points this year.
This young lad from the Czech Republic made quite a run at the French Open as he not only made it through the qualies (3 wins), but then got to the third round before dropping a close match to end his run. Towering above the others at a height of 6 foot 5, Rosol, ranked at a career high of #88 will look to do more damage as he continues on his Grand Slam excursion.
