The 1986 Wimbledon Championships was a tennis tournament played on grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London in England. It was the 100th edition of the Wimbledon Championships which were held from 23 June to 6 July 1986. Boris Becker defeated Ivan Lendl, 6–4, 6–3, 7–5 in the final. It was Becker's 2nd career Grand Slam title and his 2nd consecutive Wimbledon title.

In recognition of the 100th championship, the two oldest living singles champions were invited to present the singles championship trophies: Jean Borotra presented the gentlemen's singles and Kitty Godfree presented the ladies', both alongside the President of the All England Club and his wife, their Royal Highnesses' The Duke and Duchess of Kent.

Jean Laurent Robert Borotra (13 August 1898 – 17 July 1994) was a French tennis champion. He was known as "the Bounding Basque", he won four Grand Slam singles titles in the French, Australian, and All England championships. The 1924 French Championship does not count towards his grand slam total as the French was only open to French nationals and members of French clubs. He only failed to win the U.S. Championships, as he was defeated in the final by his countryman René Lacoste in straight sets, thus missing a career Grand Slam. His 1924 Wimbledon victory made him the first player from outside the English-speaking world to win the tournament.
