Martina Hingis (15 years, 9 months and 7 days)

In 1996, the Swiss tennis player won the women’s doubles title at Wimbledon with teammate Helena Suková of the Czech Republic and became the youngest ever champion of the tournament. Three years earlier, Hingis became the youngest player to win a Junior Grand Slam title at the age of 12 when she defeated 17-year-old Laurence Courtois at the 1993 French Open final.
