Who will the next men and women be to win a maiden Grand Slam singles title be? Will any of the next generation of WTA and ATP stars win three or more Grand Slam singles titles as only Serena and Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have done?

I hope new players who possess great integrity (refraining from making excuses when they lose), who respect tennis itself and act in the best interests of the game are the ones who become the next multiple Grand Slam singles champions in both the women’s and men’s games.

I would love to see these new players frequently display their enjoyment of the game during matches, create their unique stamp on the game plus play points with far more variety in their passages of play including volleying and continue the grace of the single-handed backhand drive.

Roger Federer winner of the most Grand Slam singles titles in men’s tennis with 17 and equal second most prolific Rafael Nadal with 14 together with Novak Djokovic who has won five of the past 7 Grand Slam titles to own 11 have collectively won 38 of the past 44 Grand Slam singles titles since Rafa won his first in 2005 at Roland Garros. At the Masters 1000 level Federer, Nadal and Djokovic have won 44 of the past 55 Masters 1000 singles titles.

Federer turns 35 this August and won his last Grand Slam title almost 4 years ago at Wimbledon 2012. Nadal turns 30 during this year’s Roland Garros event, which also marks 2 years for Rafa without winning a Grand Slam singles title. Nadal has had increasingly more injury problems over the past 10 years. Last year was the first time in 11 years that he did not win a Grand Slam title and the first time he didn’t win a clay court title in the European clay court season.

Serena Williams is the winner of the most Grand Slam singles titles of the active WTA players with 21 and turns 35 this year. Venus Williams follows Serena with 7 with last win at 2008 Wimbledon already 35 years of age with another birthday in June. Maria Sharapova is next with 5 and considerably younger, the most recent being Roland Garros 2014, although her playing future uncertain at the moment. Furthermore, three of the past four women to win a Grand Slam singles title pretty much all retired immediately: Marion Bartoli Wimbledon 2013, Li Na Australian Open 2014 and Flavia Pennetta US Open 2015.

Pictured is 22-year-old Garbiñe Muguruza of Spain prepared for a forehand during Wimbledon 2015 where she won through to the final, fighting admirably all the way before being the runner-up to Serena Williams. The 1.82m Muguruza made the her first Grand Slam singles quarter final at Roland Garros in 2014 defeating Serena Williams 6-2 6-2 on the way then reached the same stage at Roland Garros in 2015. Can Muguruza make another huge stride this year and win a Grand Slam?

The Top 10 highest ranked WTA players aged 22 and under at the moment are:

4. Garbiñe Muguruza (Spain) 22 year old – double-handed backhand
10. Belinda Benic (Switzerland) 19 years old – double-handed backhand
17. Elina Svitolina (Ukraine) 21 years old – double-handed backhand

39. Daria Gavrilova (Australia) 22 years old – double-handed backhand
70. Timea Babos (Hungary) 22 years old – double-handed backhand

The Top 10 highest ranked ATP players aged 22 and under at the moment are:
