ATP #7

The holder of 7 ATP Singles Titles is ranked 7th on our list. The Spaniard Feliciano Lopez plays his best tennis on the grass courts of England, with wins over multiple Grand Slam Champions including Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka, Marin Cilic, Andy Roddick and Marat Safin.

In addition to wins over the elite, Lopez is a 3 time Quarter-Finalist at Wimbledon, a 2 time champion at Eastbourne and a 2 time champion at Queens’ London. It is yet to be determined if Feliciano will continue to play, with the news of a new born on the way. Here’s hoping he will continue to bring his ‘A Game’ to the grass courts once more.

WTA #7

Appearing 7th on our list is the current World #3 and former World #1, Karolina Pliskova. Pliskova first tasted success on the lawn courts of Birmingham in 2015 where she fell at the last hurdle, losing to Angelique Kerber in 3 sets. A year later, Pliskova would go one step further and win the title in Nottingham. Pliskova is also a 3 time finalist at Eastbourne, lifting the trophy on 2 occasions.

Although Pliskova has never made it past the 4th round at Wimbledon, it is just a matter of time before the WTA Tours’ leading ace holder delves further into the draw.
