Boris Becker defeated Curren in the final, 6–3, 6–7, 7–6, 6–4 to win the Gentlemen's Singles tennis title at the 1985 Wimbledon Championships.[1] Becker became the first unseeded player and the first German to win the Wimbledon singles title, as well as the youngest ever male Grand Slam singles champion at 17 years, 7 months and 15 days. This latter record would eventually be broken by Michael Chang at the 1989 French Open.
