Novak Djokovic and Petra Kvitova may have walked away from Wimbledon 2014 with a second title in the bag, but some new names have come to the fore in recent weeks.

Andy Murray failed to make the semi-finals for the first time in six years, Rafael Nadal was knocked out by a Wimbledon rookie and Serena Williams didn’t even make it to the second week.

With the emergence of young stars such as Australia’s Nick Kyrgios (who beat Nadal in the fourth round) and Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria at this year’s tournament, combined with Canadian Eugenie Bouchard’s run to the final, there is a feeling that a seismic shift is on the verge of taking place.

It would not be the first time this has happened, and some of the game’s most well-known players have shot to stardom at the All England Club.

Here is a rundown of the top five players to have burst onto our screens at the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and they hold a staggering 48 Grand Slam titles between them.
