Venus Williams was attempting to become the first player to win the women's singles tournament three consecutive times since Steffi Graf was champion in 1991, 1992 and 1993.[2]

This edition of the tournament saw the top four seeds all reach the semifinals, for the second time in four years after 2006. As of 2018, this remains the last Grand Slam event to feature the top four seeds on the women's side in the semifinals. The match between Serena Williams and Dementieva was the longest women's semifinal at Wimbledon in the Open Era, lasting two hours and 49 minutes.[4]
