Tokito Oda becomes the youngest man Wimbledon winner after winning the wheelchair final.

After defeating Alfie Hewett in the men’s wheelchair final on Sunday, Tokito Oda made history by being the youngest man to ever win a Wimbledon singles title in any discipline.

After winning the French Open in June, the 17-year-old Japanese player defeated his opponent 6-4, 6-2 on Court No. 1 to capture his second consecutive Grand Slam championship.

“I’m only 17.” I wanted to open a champagne bottle, but I was unable to,” Oda stated. I must thus consume sparkling water.

At 17 years, 33 days old, Oda became the youngest person to ever win a Grand Slam singles championship in any sport, excluding juniors, with his victory at the French Open, when he also defeated Hewett in the final.

He won the Wimbledon championship at the age of 17 years, 69 days. At 17 years, 228 days old, Boris Becker was the All England Club’s youngest men’s singles champion in 1985.

In the women’s wheelchair doubles final, Diede De Groot and Jiske Griffioen added another success to their singles triumph. The Dutch pair defeated Kgothatso Montjane of South Africa and Yui Kamiji of Japan 6-1, 6-4.

De Groot won her 19th overall and 11th Grand Slam title on Saturday by defeating Griffioen in the singles final. She currently has 17 doubles wins, with three coming at Wimbledon. For Griffioen, it was his 15th major doubles championship.
