1991 Wimbledon Championships – Women's Singles

Steffi Graf defeated Gabriela Sabatini in the final, 6–4, 3–6, 8–6 to win the Ladies' Singles tennis title at the 1991 Wimbledon Championships.[1] After splitting the first two sets, Sabatini served twice for the title, and was two points away from her second Grand Slam win before Graf rallied. With the victory, Graf captured her third Wimbledon Singles Championship, while it proved to be Sabatini's third and final appearance in a Grand Slam final. Martina Navratilova was the defending champion, but lost in the quarterfinals to Jennifer Capriati.
