Wimbledon Mens Champions

There are certain Wimbledon champions that have dominated an era becoming deserved Wimbledon legends in the process. Their names become synonymous with the Tournament, where very often they are marched out on to Centre Court to remind the adoring tennis fans of Wimbledon of the great performers they were. We profile several of those 'tennis legends' below.

Roger Federer

A genuine living legend who won the Wimbledon crown for a record equalling seventh time in 2012 as he beat British hope Andy Murray.

Previously, Federer defeated Andy Roddick three times in the Final, including in 2004, 2005 and 2009.

The 'Feds' other great rival of course is Rafael Nadal, to whom he lost his only final in 2008 in a match described as greater than the Borg/McEnroe 1980 epic. Federer of course defeated Nadal in the two other finals that they met in 2006 and 2007.

Pete Sampras

Pete in his great career managed 762 victories, 64 titles, including 14 Grand Slam titles. He holds the record for most weeks at No. 1 and most consecutive years (6) as the top player in the World. Pistol Pete won Wimbledon 7 times in 2000, 1999,1998, 1997, 1995, 1994 and in 1993.

Boris Becker

The fiery German won in all 5 Grand Slams, taking the Wimbledon title 3 times along the way. The main reason he goes down in the Wimbledon hall of fame is that he was the youngest player to win Wimbledon at the tender age of 17 years and seven months, his Wimbledon wins came in 1985, 1986 and 1989.

Bjorn Borg

Borg had the staggering achievement of winning 11 Grand Slam titles before the age of 26 and it was at that number of Grand Slams that he finished the game. He won Wimbledon 5 times in succession from 1976-1980 inclusive. He will be best remembered for his fantastic duels with John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors.

John McEnroe

McEnroe was a true tennis legend as he brought character to the game and sometimes went over the top but he was a great entertainer. Always seeking perfection he had many great matches at Wimbledon with Borg and Connors, he won his 3 Wimbledon titles in 1981, 1983 and 1984.
