Jimmy Connors defeated John McEnroe in the final, 3-6, 6-3, 6-7(2-7), 7-6(7-5), 6-4 to win the Gentlemen's Singles tennis title at the 1982 Wimbledon Championships.[1][2]

A number of players were absent from this tournament for various reasons. This included five-time champion Björn Borg, who refused to play after Wimbledon officials required him to play in a qualifier tournament due to being absent from the tour injured for most of 1982; Ivan Lendl and Eliot Teltscher both withdrew citing difficulty playing on grass courts; and Argentinian players Guillermo Vilas and José Luis Clerc withdrew in protest to their country's conflict with the United Kingdom over the Falkland Islands.[3][4]

The 1982 Wimbledon men's singles final between Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe was the first Wimbledon match in history to take place on a Sunday.
