Novak Djokovic was the defending champion, but lost to eventual champion Roger Federer in the semifinals. In the final, Federer beat Andy Murray 4–6, 7–5, 6–3, 6–4 to win a seventh Wimbledon title and seventeenth Grand Slam title.[1] With the win, Federer also regained the world no. 1 ranking.[2][3] In both cases, he equalled Pete Sampras' record of seven Wimbledon titles and his record of 286 weeks as world no. 1; Federer broke the latter record on 16 July 2012.

In reaching the final, Andy Murray became the first British man to make it to the final since Don Budge beat Bunny Austin in 1938. The championships was also notable for one of the biggest upsets in recent years as World No. 100 Lukáš Rosol beat World No. 2 and two-time Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal in the second round, 6–7(9–11), 6–4, 6–4, 2–6, 6–4. The loss ended Nadal's season as he did not play tennis again until February 2013 at the Chile Open.
