Serena Williams was the defending champion and successfully defended her title, defeating Angelique Kerber in the final, 7-5, 6-3. By winning her seventh Wimbledon title, Williams equaled Steffi Graf's Open Era record of 22 major singles titles.[1][2] This was also the first time two women contested two major finals against one another in a single season since Amélie Mauresmo and Justine Henin-Hardenne met in the 2006 Australian Open and Wimbledon finals.[3][4] The two faced each other again in the final two years later, with Kerber winning the title in straight sets.

In addition to Williams and Kerber, Garbiñe Muguruza, Agnieszka Radwa?ska and Simona Halep were also in contention for the world WTA no. 1 ranking at the beginning of the tournament. Williams retained the top spot by reaching the fourth round and eventually winning the title. She also spent her 300th week at the top of the WTA rankings during the second week of the tournament, and won her 300th Slam match at the tournament by defeating Annika Beck in the third round.

At 36 years old, Venus Williams became the oldest woman to reach a Grand Slam semifinal since Martina Navratilova at the 1994 Wimbledon Championships.[5]
