Both Novak Djokovic and Petra Kvitová were unsuccessful in their 2011 title defences, both being defeated by the eventual champions: Djokovic was defeated by Roger Federer in the semifinals, and Kvitová lost to Serena Williams in the quarterfinals. In four sets, Federer defeated Andy Murray to win a record-equalling seven Wimbledon titles, while Murray became the first British male player to reach a Wimbledon singles final in the Open era. 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. Agnieszka Radwanska, Victoria Azarenka, And Maria Sharapova we’re in contention for the world number 1 ranking. Since Sharapova lost in the fourth round and Radwanska was a match away from becoming the world number 1 but lost it, Azarenka continued her success as the number 1.
