Novak Djokovic was the defending champion, but lost in the semifinals to Federer.

In reaching the final, Andy Murray became the first British man to make it to the final since Don Budge defeated Bunny Austin in 1938. The championships was also notable for one of the biggest upsets in recent years as World No. 100 Lukáš Rosol beat World No. 2 and two-time Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal in the second round, 6–7(9–11), 6–4, 6–4, 2–6, 6–4, ending a streak of 11 major quarterfinals. The loss ended Nadal's season as he did not play tennis again until February 2013 at the Chile Open.
