2007 Wimbledon Championships – Women's Singles

Venus Williams defeated Marion Bartoli in the final, 6–4, 6–1 to win the Ladies' Singles tennis title at the 2007 Wimbledon Championships.[1] Williams, ranked 31st at the time and seeded 23rd, remains the lowest ranked and lowest seeded woman ever to win Wimbledon.[2] This was Williams' fourth Wimbledon singles title and she also became the first female champion to earn the same prize money as the male champion, following the tournament's decision to award equal pay for the first time that year.[3] Amélie Mauresmo was the defending champion, but was defeated by Nicole Vaidišová in the fourth round.[4]

Bartoli reached her first Grand Slam final after a semifinal victory over world No. 1 Justine Henin that was described as one of the biggest shocks in Wimbledon history.[5] Though she lost the final, she would eventually win the Wimbledon title six years later in her final Grand Slam tournament.
