The youngest female contestant to win the Wimbledon women's single title was 'Lottie' (Charlotte) Dod from Bebington, Cheshire,U.K. in 1887 at the age of 15. However the youngest overall player to win a Wimbledon title was Martina Hingis from (Czechoslovakia/Slovakia) who won the women's Doubles title (also at the age of 15 but 3 days younger than Lottie!) playing with Helena Sukova also from (Czechoslovakia/Slovakia) in 1996. Hingis went on to win the Wimbledon women's single title at 16 years old in 1997 beating Jana Navotna(Czechoslovakia/Czech Republic) and is therfore the second youngest player to win a womens single title at Wimbledon. The third youngest is Maria Sharapova (Russia) who won at the age of 17 in 2004.
