No British man has won Wimbledon since Fred Perry completed his hat-trick of titles back in 1936. Since then the world has become a very different place.
Here we start at the 1970s, plotting every Wimbledon winner against major events in history to show just what a different world we lived in back then.
We’ve taken a look back over the last 40+ years at how the world has changed since a Brit last lifted the coveted men’s trophy, to highlight just how long it’s been since we had a home-grown winner. As you can see, we’re well overdue – so let’s hope that 2013 is our year!
