LONDON -- As Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic fell before the final of the mens singles at Wimbledon, and Rafael Nadal failed to make the starting line, there was room for new stars to emerge.Champion Andy Murray climbed higher in the tennis galaxy but Milos Raonic also shone brightly, and he was not the only player making a name for himself.Never mind Marcus Willis, and the colour and character he brought to The Championships -- what about the effort and technical excellence of some of the other less-celebrated names?Of those who played at least three matches, the players who ran the farthest, hit the fastest groundstrokes and put the most spin on the ball deserve to be celebrated, too. Here they are:Court coverageBernard Tomic only made it to the fourth round but the Australian, desperate to break through as one of the elite at the top of the mens game, at least showed he was willing to put the effort in on the court. Finishing top of the average distance covered per match, especially with the super-fit Murray down at fifth, suggested technique and tactics rather than effort should be Tomics focus.1. Bernard Tomic: 2,859 metres2. Lucas Pouille: 2,254m3. Sam Querrey: 2,226m4. Jiri Vesely: 2,219m5. Andy Murray: 2,142mFastest forehandsIt was Tomas Berdychs misfortune to come up against Murray?in imperious form in the Wimbledon semifinals. The Czech produced some tidy performances to make the last four and Murray praised his opponent before their match for his forehand skill. It was said that when Berdych is on form he sees the ball very early, and that is what allows him to generate such pace with this shot.1. Tomas Berdych: 79 mph2. Nicolas Mahut: 78 mph3. Steve Johnson:: 78 mph4. Sven Andrighetto Jersey. ?Jo-Wilfried Tsonga:77 mph5. Marin Cilic: 77 mphBrutal backhandsRichard Gasquets tournament was ended by a back injury, but not before he had shown his backhand brilliance. The Frenchman is relatively unusual in that he plays the shot single-handedly, but still generates great control and speed, as these the fastest averages of The Championships show.1. Richard Gasquet: 76 mph2. Kei Nishikori: 75 mph3. Marin Cilic: 73 mph4. David Goffin: 73 mph5. Tomas Berdych: 72 mphForehand topspinThe forehand topspin -- measured accurately by the number of revolutions put on the ball -- is one of the most popular and powerful shots after the serve and is frequently used. The spin generated by the angle of the racket and the way the strings connect with the ball send it in an arc that produces forward momentum and bounce when it lands, keeping opponents who dont take it early from advancing.1. Marin Cilic: 2,977 rpm2.?Nick Kyrgios:?2,919 rpm3. Roger Federer: 2,897 rpm4. Steve Johnson: 2,846 rpm5. Sam Querrey: 2,826 rpmBackhand topspinThe great Federer left The Championships frustrated, defeated by Raonic in the semifinals and angry that he had not produced the quality of tennis that has won him so many trophies and accolades. This list at least shows that his backhand, which is much harder to use effectively than the forehand version, didnt let him down.1. Roger Federer: 2,653 rpm2. Richard Gasquet: 2,652 rpm3. Kei Nishikori: 2,109 rpm4. Sam Querrey: 2,003 rpm5. Lucas Pouille: 1,945 rpm* All statistics courtesy of Hawk-Eye Innovations. Wholesale Jerseys From China China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys ChinaChina NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
