2019 Wimbledon Championships – Women's Singles

Simona Halep defeated Serena Williams in the final, 6–2, 6–2 to win the Ladies' Singles tennis title at the 2019 Wimbledon Championships. It took just 56 minutes for Halep to secure victory where she committed only 3 unforced errors, the fewest on record in a Grand Slam final.[1][2] In the entire tournament, she dropped only one set against compatriot Mihaela Buzărnescu. Williams was attempting to equal Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles for the third time. At 37 years and 291 days, Williams became the oldest Grand Slam women's singles finalist to compete since the start of the Open Era in 1968.

Angelique Kerber was the defending champion, but lost in the second round to Lauren Davis. This was the first time in Open Era history that a defending Major champion lost to a lucky loser.[3]

Halep became the first Romanian female player to reach and win the Wimbledon final. Romanian players previously won 8 Open Era titles at Wimbledon, but none in senior singles. Ilie Năstase lost two senior singles finals in 1972 and 1976. The only other Romanian woman to have previously held a trophy here is Ioana Gașpar, back in 2000 when she was only a junior.

This was the first Major tournament in which Ashleigh Barty competed as the WTA world number one. She retained this ranking following the end of the tournament despite losing in the fourth round to Alison Riske. Naomi Osaka, Karolína Plíšková, Kiki Bertens and Petra Kvitová were also in contention for the top ranking at the start of the tournament. [4]

Cori Gauff at 15 became the youngest player to win a main draw singles match at Wimbledon since Jennifer Capriati in 1991, defeating the oldest player in the main draw, Venus Williams at 39 in the first round. Gauff was also the youngest qualifier in Wimbledon history.[5]

This was the first Wimbledon where a final set tie break rule was introduced. Upon reaching 12–12 in the third set, a classic tie break would be played. No women's singles match required the use of the final set tie break.
