Garbiñe Muguruza was the defending champion, but was defeated in the second round by Alison Van Uytvanck. Muguruza's defeat marked the earliest exit of the defending champion at Wimbledon since Steffi Graf's first round defeat in 1994.[3]

Simona Halep, Caroline Wozniacki and Sloane Stephens were in contention for the WTA No. 1 singles ranking at the start of the tournament. Halep retained the No. 1 ranking after Wozniacki and Stephens lost in the second and first rounds, respectively.[4]

Serena Williams was attempting to equal Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles.

With all top ten seeds losing before the quarterfinals, it was the worst overall Wimbledon performance of the top ten women's seeds in the Open Era.[5][6] This was also the first time in the Open Era that none of the top four women's singles seeds reached the fourth round at Wimbledon.
