Six British hopefuls
Monday 21 June 2004
Gutsy, big-serving 20-year-old whose commitment to the game has not faltered during an ongoing recovery from a debilitating liver complaint which robbed her of the British No1 spot. Inspired Britain to Fed Cup promotion in April. Faces Spain's Marta Marrero, world No 62, ranked 280 places higher.
The 26-year-old left-hander, the daughter of the former French Open champion and Wimbledon runner-up, Christine Truman, has flourished since returning to tennis full-time last year after gaining her degree in English from Cambridge University. Faces a tough first-round test against Japan's Ai Sugiyama, the world No13.
The Wigan-based 21-year-old had the misfortune to be drawn against Venus Williams on her senior Wimbledon singles debut two years ago. Reached a career-high world ranking of No 220 earlier this year and America's Lindsay Lee-Waters, ranked No 90 in the world, is a more feasible conquest this time.
The 27-year-old former teenage prodigy and schoolmate of Tim Henman is the only British man apart from Henman to earn his place in the main draw directly through results on the court (as opposed to through a wild card), having won a qualification tournament. Starts against Italy's world No 51, Filippo Volandri.
The 23-year-old has climbed the world rankings to No 250 with good recent form. Reached the third round at Queen's (where he lost to Lleyton Hewitt) and the second round at the Nottingham Open. Begins here against Karol Beck, who knocked Tim Henman out at Queen's.
Has made year-on-year improvements to rise in the end-of-season world rankings for the past three years. The 26-year-old has experience of progress in SW19, twice reaching the second round, in 1999 and 2001. Faces Belgium's Gilles Elseneer, (who as world No 99 is not unbeatable) in the first round.
