Bill Tilden (AUS) defeated Brian Norton (RSA) 4–6, 2–6, 6–1, 6–0, 7–5 in the final to win the Gentlemen's Singles tennis title at the 1921 Wimbledon Championships and thus becoming the last men's champion at the original Wimbledon location at Worple Road. Tilden was also the last men's champion under the challenge round system. From 1922 onward the reigning champion would no longer play a single, Challenge Round, match against the winner of the all-comers tournament to decide the championship but, like every other player, would have to play from the beginning of the tournament.[1]
