Goran Ivani?evi? defeated Pat Rafter in the final, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 2-6, 9-7 to win the Gentlemen's Singles tennis title at the 2001 Wimbledon Championships. Ivani?evi? became the first unseeded player to win the title since Boris Becker in 1985.[1] He became the first wild card to win a Grand Slam. Before the tournament he was ranked 125th and after the win he climbed 109 places to 16th.[2] He had reached the final three times before (in 1992, 1994 and 1998) but lost each time (to Agassi, and Sampras twice, respectively).[3]

Pete Sampras was a then record seven-time (and four-time defending) champion, but he lost in the fourth round to 19-year-old Roger Federer. The Sampras-Federer match was the only time the two tennis legends ever competed against each other in any ATP event as active tour players. This was the first Grand Slam tournament at which Federer was seeded. Sampras was also attempting to equal Björn Borg's five consecutive Wimbledon titles, which Federer would achieve in 2007.[4]

This was the first year where Wimbledon expanded from 16 seeds to 32 seeds.
