Who Has Won The Most Wimbledon Titles?
Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world. Since its founding in 1877, it has been the home for some of the most exciting matches in tennis history. Holding tournaments almost every year since its founding, there are many winners and losers who have made their way to this prestigious tournament.
For the gentlemen, Roger Federer of Switzerland holds the record with an astounding 8 wins. His most recent win in 2017 put him out of a tie in first. Boris Becker of Germany previously had 7 wins as well. However, Boris Becker had been to Wimbledon 7 times and won each time, while Roger Federer had been 11 times, and had three losses. Björn Borg is in third place for the most Wimbledon wins with 5 and one loss and was at Wimbledon every year from 1976-1981.
Martina Navratilova of the United States currently holds the record for the most Wimbledon wins in the ladies category. Her first win was in 1978, and her last win was in 1990, although she returned in 1994 and lost. Serena Williams of the United States currently has 7 wins with her most recent in 2016, so it is possible that Navratilova’s title may fall if Williams wins two more titles.
Todd Woodbridge of Australia currently holds 9 wins in Wimbledon doubles. He is considered one of the most successful doubles players of all time. His partners for his wins were Mark Woodforde and later with Jonas Björkman. 9 doubles wins is quite a record, and he is now retired so it is possible one day someone will come up and take this crown away!
