British player Andy Murray, billed as the UK's great hope for this year's Wimbledon, did not feature in the poll's results, suggesting he still has a way to go before being ranked with tennis legends such as John McEnroe and Steffi Graf.

The poll was conducted to coincide with the release of new video game EA SPORTS Grand Slam Tennis and asked fans to rank players on everything from their passion for the game, to their serving ability.
