With this win, Sharapova entered the top 10 in rankings for the first time in her career. She also became the third-youngest woman to win Wimbledon (behind Lottie Dod and Martina Hingis)[3] and the second Russian woman (after Anastasia Myskina won the 2004 French Open) to win a major title.[4]

Serena Williams was attempting to become the first woman to win the singles tournament three consecutive times since Steffi Graf was champion in 1991, 1992 and 1993.

This was also the last major singles tournament that former world No. 1 Martina Navratilova competed in. Having been awarded a wild card, she won her first round match and became, at age 47, the oldest player in the Open Era to win a main draw match at Wimbledon and the second-lowest ranked player (No. 1,001) to win a main draw match at Wimbledon, (behind Barbara Schwartz, who was unranked in 2001).[5][6]
