Who's tipped for the top at SW19?

Spectators at Wimbledon love to watch the old faces and sneak a glimpse of the famous names.

But there are also many up-and-coming stars on the circuit.

Here is our selection of who to watch out for:

James Blake

The 23-year-old American made his big breakthrough in 2002 when he captured his first ATP Tour title and won at least one round in all four Grand Slams. A semi-finalist in San Jose this year, Blake's marketability was helped by People Magazine, who in 2002 voted him "Sexiest Man Alive".

Paradorn Srichaphan

Srichaphan has not looked back since stunning Andre Agassi in the Wimbledon second round. He improved 110 places on the ranking system last year and won two ATP Tour titles. Continued his improvement this year winning in Chennai and hitting the world top 10 for the first time.

Mikhail Youzhny

The 20-year-old has reached the Wimbledon fourth round in each of the last two years and could be looking at his big breakthrough. Made history when he came from two sets down to win the decisive Davis Cup final rubber for Russia last season. A live outsider for the title.

Mario Ancic

The 19-year-old has lots to live up to. Not only is he from the same city which produced Goran Ivanisevic, but last year's Centre Court win over Roger Federer was the first time a teenager had won on their Centre Court debut since Bjorn Borg in 1973. Climbed 187 places last year and like Goran, the 19-year-old's game is clearly suited to grass.

Richard Gasquet

A 16-year-old French prodigy who will provoke plenty of interest if he makes his Wimbledon main draw entry this year. Made his French Open debut at the age of 15 last year and stretched eventual champion Albert Costa to four sets. A former world junior champion destined for great things as a pro.

Vera Zvonareva

The sparkling young Russian is poised to crack the top 20 at the age of 18 and clearly the only way is up. She burst onto the scene at last year's French Open when she reached the fourth-round on her Grand Slam debut and stretched Serena Williams to three sets. Subsequently reached round two at Wimbledon and won her first WTA Tour title this year in Bol.

Dinara Safin

The sister of Marat Safin will always carry the burden of expectation, but so far the 17-year-old is living up to the inevitable hype. Reached 2001 Wimbledon juniors final and her powerful game is suited to grass. Won her first WTA Tour title in her debut season and improved her ranking by almost 700 places.

Ashley Harkleroad

The superstar-in-waiting of American women's tennis, the 17-year-old is attracting as much attention for her glitzy outfits as for her accomplished game. Announced her big-time arrival in Charleston this year when she beat three top-20 players, including Daniela Hantuchova, on her way to the quarter-finals.

Meghann Shaunghnessy

Shaughnessy has the talent and panache to be a big star, but is still waiting for her major league breakthrough. Has only been past the Wimbledon second round once in four attempts, but produced her best ever Grand Slam performance to reach the Australian quarter-finals this year.

Iroda Tulyaganova

The powerful Uzbekistan player proved she had the game for grass when she swept to the Wimbledon girls' title in 1999. Has hovered inside the world's top 50 since. Tulyaganova has won three WTA Tour titles and almost beat Lindsay Davenport in Australia earlier this year.
