This article lists the progress of British tennis players at Wimbledon each year. Wimbledon is the home grand slam for British players, but in recent years they have not had much success. However, on 7 July 2013 Andy Murray became the first Briton to win the men's competition since Fred Perry in 1936.[1][2] The last British woman to win the ladies' tournament was Virginia Wade in 1977.[3]
