Winning any Grand slam tournament is the desire of every Tennis player. But Wimbledon is the most prestigious tournament and the most liked among fans and players; therefore, every player dreams of winning it.

Two statistics that tennis fans pay close attention to are who among the male Tennis players has won most of the Wimbledon Grand slam titles and who has the most grand slams overall  

Tennis legend Rafael Nadal currently has most grand slams than any other player. The Spaniard has now two grand slams added to his tally after incredible victories in the Australian Open earlier this year and the French Open recently.

The king of clay is hoping to extend his tally at Wimbledon, where he is currently competing and has made it to the tournament’s third round. On the other hand, Wimbledon reigning champion Novak Djokovic is desperate to defend the title.

For Federer, it’s a never-ending source of frustration as he recovers from injury, with his sights set on the Grand Slams in 2023.

Let us take a look at Wimbledon champions.
