Both Novak Djokovic and Petra Kvitová were unsuccessful in their 2011 title defences, both being defeated by the eventual champions: Djokovic to Roger Federer in the semi-finals and Kvitová to Serena Williams in the quarter-finals. In four sets, Federer defeated Andy Murray (who became the first male singles British Wimbledon finalist in the open era) to win a record-equalling seventh Wimbledon title. Williams defeated first-time Wimbledon finalist, Agnieszka Radwańska in three sets, to equal her sister Venus in winning five Wimbledon titles. Both Federer and Williams were more than 30 years old at the time of their victories. With the victories, Federer reclaimed the World No.1 ranking for the first time since June 2010, thus allowing him to equal, then break, the all-time record of most weeks ranked World No.1 held by Pete Sampras.

Singles seedsEdit

The following are the seeded players and notable players who withdrew from the event.[11]

Gentlemen's SinglesEdit

Because the tournament takes place one week later than in 2011, points defending includes results from both the 2011 Wimbledon and tournaments from the week of 4 July 2011 (Newport and Davis Cup).

The Gentlemen's singles seeds is arranged on a surface-based system to reflect more accurately the individual player's grass court achievement as per the following formula:

  • Take ESP points at 18 June 2012
  • Add 100% points earned for all grass court tournaments in the past 12 months
  • add 75% points earned for best grass court tournament in the 12 months before that.
