Grand slam title winners Ana Ivanovic, Flavia Pennetta, Carlos Moya and Cara Black are the new nominees on the International Tennis Hall of Fame ballot for the Class of 2022, joining the already selected Lisa Raymond and Juan Carlos Ferrero.

Serbia's Ivanovic won the 2008 French Open singles title and reached No. 1 in the rankings, while Italian Pennetta was the 2015 US Open singles champion and made it to No.1 in doubles.

Spaniard Moya was the 1998 French Open champion and also got to world No.1. Zimbabwean Black collected 10 slams in doubles or mixed doubles.

American Raymond and Spain's Ferrero were first nominated for the Class of 2021; players are eligible for three years before being dropped from the ballot.

Raymond won 11 slams in doubles or mixed doubles, while Ferrero, a former world No.1, was the 2003 French Open champ.

Fan voting begins on Friday and the top three finishers will receive bonus percentage points for their total count. Balloting by journalists, historians and members of the Hall of Fame will take place in the coming months with the inductees announced early next year.
