The five-set thriller hit a peak audience of 11.3m on BBC One, the highest since Andy Murray won his second Wimbledon title against Milos Raonic in 2016.
There was also an additional 4.1m streams on the BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport website, while the BBC said a total of 54.3m streams throughout the two-week tournament was a new digital record.
Vondrousova’s win was watched by a further 1.3m people on BBC iPlayer, also an increase on last year.
Wimbledon also recorded a total attendance of 532,651 throughout the 14-day tournament, which is expected to be the highest ever figure when confirmed by the All England Club.
The 2022 attendance reached a record 515,164 last year, which was the first Wimbledon to schedule a full day of play on the ‘middle Sunday’.
