The 2012 Wimbledon Championships took place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London, United Kingdom, from 25 June to 8 July 2012. They were the 126th championships, and the third Grand Slam tournament of the year, played on grass courts and part of the ATP World Tour, the WTA Tour, the ITF Junior Tour and the NEC Tour. They were organised by the All England Lawn Tennis Club and the International Tennis Federation.

Both Novak Djokovic and Petra Kvitová were unsuccessful in their 2011 title defences, both being defeated by the eventual champions: Djokovic to Roger Federer in the semi-finals and Kvitová to Serena Williams in the quarter-finals. In four sets, Federer defeated Andy Murray (who became the first male singles British Wimbledon finalist in the open era) to win a record-equalling seventh Wimbledon title. Williams defeated first-time Wimbledon finalist, Agnieszka Radwańska in three sets, to equal her sister Venus in winning five Wimbledon titles. Both Federer and Williams were more than 30 years old at the time of their victories. With the victories, Federer reclaimed the World No.1 ranking for the first time since June 2010, thus allowing him to equal, then break, the all-time record of most weeks ranked World No.1 held by Pete Sampras.
