The Women's Singles event at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships saw defending champion and top seed Serena Williams successfully defend her title with a 6–3, 6–2 win over Vera Zvonareva in the final, whilst failing to lose a set throughout the entire tournament.[1] The victory meant that Serena and her sister Venus had won nine of the last eleven Wimbledon titles between them, with only 2004 and 2006 going to another player.

Zvonareva reached her first ever Grand Slam final in singles competition, and was the second lowest-ranked woman to play in a Wimbledon singles final.

The 2010 French Open women's singles champion Francesca Schiavone and the women's singles runner-up Samantha Stosur both lost in the first round of Wimbledon.

This year's women's singles event also saw two surprise semifinalists in Petra Kvitová and Tsvetana Pironkova, despite previously having never passed the first and the second rounds respectively. The first time two unseeded players had made it to that stage since 1999.
