Wild cards

Wild cards are players whose world ranking is not high enough to qualify automatically for The Championships but who are accepted into the main Championships draw at the discretion of the Committee.

Wild cards are usually offered on the basis of past performance at Wimbledon or to increase British interest. Wild cards have been allocated since 1977 and from 2003 some singles wild cards have been determined by competition. The only wild card to win the Men's Singles title was Goran Ivanisevic in 2001. No wild card has won the Ladies' Singles title.
