Who was the first and only wild card entry to ever win Wimbledon?

Ivanievi reached her first singles final since 1998. Ivanievi defeated Rafter 6–3, 3–6, 6–3, 2–6, 9–7 in a contest that lasted a little over three hours. Ivanievi became the lowest-ranked player and the first wildcard entry to win Wimbledon two months shy of his 30th birthday.
