The 2010 French Open women's singles champion Francesca Schiavone and the women's singles runner-up Samantha Stosur both lost in the first round, marking the first time that the two French Open finalists had lost in the opening round of Wimbledon.[3]

This year's women's singles event also saw two surprise semifinalists in Petra Kvitová (ranked 62nd) and Tsvetana Pironkova (ranked 82nd). This was the first time two unseeded players had made it to that stage since 1999.[4]
