Marion Bartoli was the reigning champion, but retired from professional tennis in August 2013.[1]

2011 champion Petra Kvitová defeated Eugenie Bouchard in the final in straight sets, 6–3, 6–0 to win the Ladies' Singles tennis title at the 2014 Wimbledon Championships.[2] The final lasted only 55 minutes, the fifth-shortest women's singles final in Wimbledon history in terms of time elapsed. Bouchard had not lost a set prior to the final and was the betting favorite to win.[3][4]

Like the previous major, the 2014 Wimbledon Championships was marked by two big upsets. The top two seeds – Serena Williams and Li Na – both lost in the third round. This marked the first time in the Open era that neither of the top two seeds reached the fourth round of Wimbledon. Five-time Wimbledon champion Williams' defeat to 25th-seeded Alizé Cornet equalled her earliest exit from the tournament (she lost at the same stage in 1998 and 2005).[5] Li fell to unseeded Barbora Záhlavová-Strýcová, which would be Li's final professional tennis match before she announced her retirement almost three months later.[6][7]

The final[edit]

Sixth-seeded Kvitová defeated her compatriot and 23rd-seeded Lucie Šafářová, 7–6(8–6), 6–1 in the first semifinal, while 13th-seeded Eugenie Bouchard defeated third-seeded Simona Halep, 7–6(7–5), 6–2 in the other.[8][9] Bouchard, playing in only her sixth grand slam tournament, advanced to the final without losing a set, becoming the first Canadian tennis player to reach the singles final of a grand slam.[3][10][3][11] The title match was the first grand slam final contested between two players born in the 1990s.[3] In the first set, Kvitová broke in the third game and broke again in the seventh to establish a 5–2 lead. With Kvitová serving for the set, Bouchard broke back, but Kvitová did the same in the following game to take the first set 6–3. The second set saw Kvitová lose only three points on serve as she bagelled Bouchard 6–0.[3] Only 10 other Wimbledon women singles champions lost "fewer games in the final than Kvitova did".[12]

The victory gave Kvitová her second Wimbledon title and second Grand Slam title overall.[3] After the tournament, Bouchard improved to a career-high World No. 7 in the WTA rankings, surpassing Carling Bassett-Seguso's record of being the highest-ranked Canadian woman of all-time, while Kvitová moved up to World No. 4.[10]
