1994 Wimbledon Championships – Women's Singles

Steffi Graf was the three-time defending champion but lost in the first round to Lori McNeil, ending her streak of thirty-one consecutive quarter-final appearances dating back to the 1985 US Open. This also marked the first time in the Open Era that a Grand Slam defending champion had lost in the first round.[1] A defending Grand Slam champion would not lose in the first round again until the 2003 Australian Open.
