1974 Wimbledon Championships – Men's Singles

Jimmy Connors defeated Ken Rosewall in the final, 6–1, 6–1, 6–4 to win the Gentlemen's Singles tennis title at the 1974 Wimbledon Championships.[1] Uniquely, due to the WCT ban in place at the 1972 Championship and the ATP boycott of 1973, three undefeated champions competed in the men's singles event. John Newcombe, Stan Smith and defending champion Kodeš were all unbeaten from their last singles matches at the championships when this year's event commenced. Jan Kodeš was the defending champion, but lost in the quarterfinals to Connors.
