Wimbledon Week 2: Who's Got the Buzz?

Week 1 of Wimby is in the dust, but who are some of the newer faces making noise going into the second week? Grab your strawberries and cream because we're about to take a look...

American Laura Granville, a former NCAA standout from Stanford, has been making the rounds on the WTA Tour for a number of years now. This week, the 26 year old beat 5-time Grand Slam champ and former Wimby titlist Martina "Marty" Hingis in the third round. Her next opponent in the round of 16 is...

Michaella Krajichek from the Netherlands. This 18 year old is sister's with former Wimby champ Richard Krajichek. She's certainly on the rise - she beat current world #7 Russian Anna Chakvetadze in a gruelling 3 setter in the last round.

Lookin' like a young Muhammed Ali, 22 year old Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is a heavyweight with a game to match. This Frenchman is the REAL DEAL and could make a name for himself this week.

Janko Tipsarevic joins his countrymen, and women, from Serbia as they storm the tennis world. We love Tipsy's (as he's affectionately known) tattoos and shotmaking skills, so we hope to see him for many Slams to come.
