Roger Federer was the defending champion, but was defeated in the quarterfinals by Berdych. This was the first time since 2002 that Federer did not make the Wimbledon men's singles final, and the second successive Grand Slam tournament that Federer was defeated at the quarterfinal stage, having previously been on a record run of 23 successive Grand Slam semifinals (of which he won all but three). Federer's loss, along with those of Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick, both in the fourth round, ensured that there would be a first time Wimbledon finalist from the top half of the draw.

Berdych became the first Czech man to reach the final since Ivan Lendl's appearance in the 1987 final. For the first time ever there were no English players in the Wimbledon men's singles competition, however Great Britain was represented by two players from Scotland: fourth seed Andy Murray and wildcard Jamie Baker.[3]

The first round match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut set a new record for the longest tennis match in history (in both time and total of games), as well as many other records due to its length. Isner won the match, taking the final set 70–68 after a total of 11 hours and 5 minutes play across three days.[4] The two faced each other again in the first round the following year, with Isner taking that match 7–6(7–4), 6–2, 7–6(8–6).
