ATP #6

Ranking 6th on our list is the Canadian Milos Raonic. Once ranked number 3 in the world, Milos has seen his ranking fall in recent years due to suffering many injuries. Regardless of that, Milos has beaten the best of the best including a remarkable win against Roger Federer in the Semi Finals at Wimbledon in 2016. Milos would end up finishing runner-up to Andy Murray.

In addition to being runner-up at Wimbledon in 2016, Milos has also fallen at the last hurdle at Queens’ London, losing to Murray once again, and losing to Federer at the Stuttgart Open in 2018.

WTA #6

Narrowly missing out on being placed in the top 5 of our grass court players is a player who first entered the world’s top 10 on January 27, 2014 and hasn’t fallen out of the top 10 since. Simona Halep, currently ranked number 2 in the world, lifted her 2nd WTA Title on the grass courts in the The Netherlands, defeating Kirstin Flipkins in straight sets.

Simona has seen her grass court game flourish ever since, defeating the 7 time Wimbledon Champion Serena Williams  in the Final at Wimbledon in 2019 by a score line of 6 2, 6 2.
