No. I’ve done my research. Several British men have won Wimbledon mixed doubles titles – most recently Jamie Murray in 2007. British Women have won titles, such as Virginia Wade in 1977.
But no British man has won a Wimbledon title since 1936 without the aid of a woman (i.e without being in a mixed doubles pair).
Am I right? Or am I right?
In 1936, Fred Perry won the Wimbledon Men’s singles title, the last British man to do so. In 1936 also, Pat Hughes and Raymond Tuckey won the Men’s Doubles titles, the last time a British male did so until tonight.
Well done Marray and Nielsen!Tweet
