The whole world knows who Serena Williams is. She began practising the game at the tender age of four, and is now counted among the top players in the game. She has won a total of 32 major titles, which include 18 singles titles, 13 doubles titles and 2 mixed doubles titles. She has also won four Olympic Gold medals, and is regarded as one of the best tennis players in history.
With a career spanning over two decades, Andre Agassi is easily one of the most dominant players in the game. He is known for his charisma, both on and off the court. However, he also packs a punch while playing and has been aptly nicknamed ‘The Punisher’. He has won eight Grand Slam championships and an Olympic gold medal. He is also the only man to have won both ATP Tour World and Career Golden Slam Championships.
Only a few players have managed to reach the semi finals of all the four Grand Slams. Tomar Berdych happens to be one of them. He is known for his strong forehands and powerful strokes. He has been in the Top 10 for over four years in a row and has won two Davis Cup championships for his country.
Lleyton Hewitt is no stranger to accolades. At the age of 20, he became the youngest male to have ever achieved the number 1 spot in singles. His game has been lauded by other legends in tennis like Andre Agassi. His achievements include the top spot as ATP Player of the Year for two consecutive years, and he has also won the US Open and Wimbledon singles titles.
Nick Kyrgios has been pegged as one of the most promising players in tennis. This is owing to his exceptional instincts on the court and his super cannon serve. He reached the World no. 3 spot in 2012 after winning two junior Grand Slam doubles titles. He has won numerous other titles, including the Nature’s Way Sydney Tennis International in 2013.
After winning her first WTA tournament in 2002, Daniela Hantuchova has today become a force to reckon with. She is only the fifth female player in history to have completed the Career Grand Slam in mixed doubles.
Bruno Soares first created ripples in the tennis world after winning the mixed doubles title in the 2012 US Open. Since then, he has won 17 ATP titles and is the third Brazilian player to have reached the World No. 3 spot in doubles rankings.
Easily one of the most experienced players in the game, Patrick Rafter is regarded as a brilliant sportsman and a great mentor. He has 11 ATP titles to his name and has won 10 doubles titles. He has been a part of Australia’s Davis Cup team for the longest time and was the first man to have won three major titles (Canadian Open, Cincinnati Masters and US Open) in one year.
