Wimbledon (ウィンブルドン), known as Wimbledon Tennis in North America, is a tennis game for the Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear. As the name suggests, it is based on the Wimbledon tournament.

Even though the cover shows a female player, unlike the Mega Drive version, Master System port does not have any female tennis athletes.

The game was followed by Wimbledon II.
