LONDON - Looking for Rafa, Roger or Maria? Don't look at Wimbledon.

It's less than a week into play and so many of its biggest stars have lost and left.

That's made for some getting-to-know-you moments between Thursday and when the tournament concludes, next weekend.

Among the long list of oft-overlooked players sharing the grass courts with Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Serena Williams include Kimiko Date-Krumm, a 42-year-old who retired for 12 years but is now back in the top 100.

Also, Eugenie Bouchard, the 19-year-old Canadian who won the junior championship last year.

On the men's side, eighth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro has the distinction as the only man left in the draw with a Grand Slam title to his credit not named Djokovic or Murray.
