5 Men's Tennis Players Most Likely to Break Up Big Four's Run on Grand Slams

Grigor Dimitrov could make a Grand Slam run this year.

The ATP's Big Four—Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray—have 35 Grand Slam titles among them.

Only four other players, other than those four, have won a slam since Federer won his first in 2003.

As Federer enters the waning stages of his career, now is the best chance for a fresh face to break the run the Big Four have on Grand Slams.

Will it be one of the young guns like Grigor Dimitrov or Milos Raonic? Or perhaps a hungry, slam-less veteran like Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Tomas Berydch?

Winning a Grand Slam takes skills, persistence, mental toughness and sometimes a little luck.

Sometimes it takes a few failures in finals before the big breakthrough.  

Rarely does a player burst onto the scene like then-unseeded 17-year-old Boris Becker and grab a Slam. If it happens again, fans will be stunned and delighted. However, most likely, the players who have the best chance of pushing past the Big Four are in the mix right now.
