Martina Navratilova was the record six-time defending champion, but she lost to Steffi Graf in the final, in what was a rematch of the 1987 final. This was Graf's third step towards completing the first and so far only Calendar Year Golden Slam. It was also the first of Graf's seven Wimbledon ladies' titles. After Graf took a 5-3 lead in the first set, Navratilova won six straight games allowing her to win the first set and take a 2-0 lead in the second set. Graf then came back winning 12 of the next 13 games and the match.
