With Wimbledon just around the corner, thoughts will naturally turn to the top dogs who are expected to contest the business end of the fortnight that defines a British summer. However with every passing year at Wimbledon, new heroes emerge and The Sports Lowdown pick three who could make their breakthrough in July.

Bernard Tomic
Age: 22 Nationality: Australian

German born Tomic has been on the radar for a while now, having turned professional in 2008. The former junior Australian Open winner has so far only one two tournaments, his first coming in 2013. He only made it to the second round of the French Open last month, but the Australian’s favourite surface is said to be grass. So far he has a poor record in Grand Slams, and the 22 year old will want to improve on the second round finish he achieved at Wimbledon last year.

Grigor Dimitrov
Age: 24 Nationality: Bulgaria

Despite being aged just 24, Dimitrov has already won four titles. He has long been touted as a Grand Slam winner, and reached the last sixteen at the Australian Open earlier this year, losing to Andy Murray. He had a magnificent grass season last year, winning Queen’s and reaching the semi-finals of Wimbledon. This year the Bulgarian will be hoping to go at least one better. Dimitrov has emerged victorious at Wimbledon before- winning the junior competition, and he will be hoping this stands him in good stead to win the real thing.

Milos Raonic
Age: 24 Nationality: Canadian

Grass may not be Raonic’s favourite surface, but the young Canadian may well fancy his chances at this year’s tournament. He currently finds himself in the top ten of the world rankings, although he has recently struggled with injury problems. Despite this, he has already reached a quarter-final this year in the Australian Open. Last year he reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon and he will be hoping to advance into the latter stages again this year as he searches for his first Grand Slam.
