Most Wimbledon Singles Titles of All Time

The first Wimbledon tournament was held in 1877, and a lot of tennis history has been made at the All England Club since then.

These are the players with the most WImbledon singles titles of all time — both men’s and women’s — at the oldest tennis tournament in the world.

13. Bjorn Borg — 5 (Tie)

There’s no career full of more “what ifs” than Swedish superstar Bjorn Borg, who won 11 career Grand Slam singles titles but retired at the height of his talent and fame in 1984 to become a fashion designer.

What’s even more shocking about Borg’s 11 Grand Slam titles is that he never won an Australian Open or U.S. Open title, despite making it to the finals at the U.S. Open four times.

But, of course, he won five consecutive Wimbledon singles titles from 1976 to 1980.

13. Lottie Dod — 5 (Tie)

Lottie Dodd won the first of her five Wimbledon singles titles in 1887, when she was just 15 years old. She remains the youngest singles champion in the tournament’s history.

Dod is also in the conversation with the greatest women’s athletes of all time. She won the British Ladies Amateur Golf Championship, founded and played for England’s national women’s field hockey team and won a silver medal at the 1908 Olympics in archery.

Dod died in 1960, at 88 years old.

13. Laurence Doherty — 5 (Tie)

British tennis player Laurence Doherty became the first non-American to win the U.S. Open in 1903, the only year he won a Grand Slam singles title outside of Wimbledon.

Doherty won five consecutive Wimbledon singles titles between 1902 and 1906 — one more Wimbledon title than his older brother, Reginald Doherty.

It was playing with Reginald where Laurence gained perhaps his greatest amount of fame in the tennis world. They won 10 Grand Slam doubles titles together, including eight at Wimbledon.

10. Billie Jean King — 6 (Tie)

Billie Jean King is known to sports fans around the world for her famous “Battle of the Sexes” match against former world No. 1 Bobby Riggs in 1973. But she’s so much more than that.

King spearheaded movements for gender equality and pay equality for females in sports but was also a champion tennis player. She won 12 Grand Slam singles titles in her career and was never more successful than she was at Wimbledon, where she won six championships.
