Default 5th set tie break at Wimbledon?

Is there a 5th set tie break at Wimbledon? Or do all Grand Slams go the distance (no tie breaks) in the 5th set? I wasn't sure if that was just the French Open or all Slams.

IMO an advantage set is the only real thing to finish a Grand Slam match
for me, a tiebreak is somehow a "shabby" way to end a match...

just imagine all these scorelines if the tiebreak game was NEVER INVENTED!
earlier all the matches and every set were an advantage set

guys like Karlovic and Beck would play until 18-16 every set then

no, I think the tiebreak is okay and necessary for sets #1 to #4, but should not be decisive in the final set
