Serena Williams defeated Agnieszka Radwańska in the final, 6–1, 5–7, 6–2 to win the Ladies' Singles tennis title at the 2012 Wimbledon Championships.[1]

Yaroslava Shvedova became the first player in the Open Era to win a 'golden set' at Wimbledon, winning the first set of her 6–0, 6–4 victory over 2012 French Open runner-up Sara Errani in the third round without dropping a single point.[2]

Sabine Lisicki defeated the reigning French Open champion for her third straight Wimbledon. She defeated Maria Sharapova in the fourth round, as well as beating Li Na in 2011 and Svetlana Kuznetsova 2009. She missed the 2010 Championships due to injury.

Victoria Azarenka regained the WTA No. 1 ranking by reaching the quarterfinals after Sharapova failed to defend her finalist points from 2011. Four of the top five seeds (with the exception of Kvitová) were in contention for the top ranking at the start of the tournament.
