Maria Sharapova defeated the two-time defending champion Serena Williams in the final, 6–1, 6–4 to win the Ladies' Singles tennis title at the 2004 Wimbledon Championships.[1] This victory was hailed by the media as "the most stunning upset in memory".[2]

With this win, Sharapova, who was to become a future world No. 1, entered the top ten for the first time in her career. She also became the third-youngest woman to win Wimbledon (behind Lottie Dod and Martina Hingis)[3] and the second Russian woman (after Anastasia Myskina won the French Open earlier that year) to win a Grand Slam title.[4]

Serena Williams was attempting to become the first player to win the women's singles tournament three consecutive times since Steffi Graf was champion in 1991, 1992 and 1993.

Venus Williams, who had appeared in the previous four Wimbledon finals, winning in 2000 and 2001, suffered her earliest exit from Wimbledon since her debut, being upset in the second round by Karolina Šprem.[5]

This was also the last Grand Slam singles tournament that former world No. 1 Martina Navratilova competed in; having been awarded a wild card, she won her first round match and became, at age 47, the oldest player in the Open Era to win a main draw match at Wimbledon.[6]
