Jimmy Connors defeated Ken Rosewall in the final, 6-1, 6-1, 6-4 to win the gentlemen's singles tennis title at the 1974 Wimbledon Championships.[1]

Jan Kode? was the defending champion, but lost in the quarterfinals to Connors.

Uniquely, due to the WCT ban in place at the 1972 championships and the ATP boycott of 1973, three unofficial "defending champions" competed in the event. John Newcombe, Stan Smith and Kode? were all unbeaten from their last singles matches at the championships when this year's event commenced.
