The defending Gentlemen's singles champion Novak Djokovic retained his title, while the defending Ladies' singles champion Angelique Kerber lost in the second round to Lauren Davis. Simona Halep won the Ladies' Singles title. This was the first Grand Slam tournament where both singles titles were won by players born in the Balkans.[2]

This was the first edition of the tournament to feature a standard tie break in the final set when the score in the set was 12 games all. The winner was the first player or pair to reach seven points whilst leading by two or more points or, in the case of a 6-6 point score, to establish a subsequent lead of two points. Henri Kontinen and John Peers won the first such tie break played in Wimbledon history, defeating Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury in a third round men's doubles match.[3] In men's singles, the only such match was the final in which Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer, in what was also the longest final in tournament history.[4]

In the Women's Singles, there are 16 qualifiers from 128 entrants, an increase from 12 qualifiers from 96 entrants. Doubles qualifying has been eliminated as a result. The change brings the qualification for the Women's Singles into line with that for the Men's Singles, which remains unchanged.[5]
