Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Singles Champion

The Championships, Wimbledon is an annual British tennis tournament created in 1877 and played on outdoor grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) in the Wimbledon suburb of London, United Kingdom.

Gentlemen’s Singles was the first event contested in 1877.

History

Wimbledon Championships are played in the last week of June and the first week of July, and has been chronologically the third of the four Grand Slam tournaments of the tennis season since 1987. The event was not held from 1915-1918 because of World War I and again from 1940-1945 because of World War II.

Since 1949, the Gentlemen’s Singles champion has received a miniature replica of the event’s trophy, a silver-gilt cup created in 1887 with the engraved inscription: “The All England Lawn Tennis Club Single Handed Champion of the World”

New singles champions are traditionally elected honorary members of the AELTC by the club’s committee. In 2017, the Gentlemen’s Singles winner received prize money of £2,220,000.
