From Boris Becker's acrobatics in 1985 to Roger Federer's languid brilliance in 2003, Wimbledon has provided the stage for many of tennis' most formidable tyros to secure a maiden Grand Slam trophy.Yet since Federer clinched the first of his seven Wimbledon crowns, nobody outside of tennis' so-called big four has had a look-in at the All England Club with the Swiss, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray sweeping all before them.En route to the French Open semis for a second straight year, Thiem destroyed Djokovic, winning the third set 6-0 in 20 minutes, to further underline his growing stature in the game.The younger brother of world No. 30 Mischa, Zverev showed his grass-court prowess by reaching the final at Halle only to lose in straight sets to Federer, who he beat at the same event last year.
