Meet US young gun Taylor Dent
Around the Academy:

Taylor Dent was warming up at Surbiton for Wimbledon 2003
You can't fault the man for his fashion sense!

Andre Agassi? Pete Sampras? Forget them, they're old news.

There's some seriously young talent coming out of America these days and the Academy is hot on their vapour trails.

Andy Roddick, Taylor Dent and James Blake are the new breed hoping to follow in Pete and Andre's almighty footsteps.

Here we get on court with Taylor Dent. The 23-year-old from California is a typically laid-back dude away from tennis.

But on the court he says he "wants it pretty bad."

Taylor is known for his huge serve and his classic serve-volley style. Just don't ask him about playing on clay!

Here he talks exclusively about why he loves Wimbledon, his friendship with Roddick and Blake and why 50 Cent is rocking his world when it comes to music.
