This was the first Wimbledon appearance of future world No. 1 and five-time major champion Maria Sharapova, losing to Svetlana Kuznetsova in the fourth round. Sharapova would win the title the following year. It was also the first Wimbledon appearance of future champion Marion Bartoli, losing to Daniela Hantuchová in the first round.
