Ann Jones was the defending champion, but she did not defend her title as she had retired from Grand Slam singles competition.[1]

Margaret Court won the title, defeating Billie Jean King in the final, 14–12, 11–9. This was Court's third Wimbledon title, her third Grand Slam of the year, her fourth consecutive Grand Slam title and her nineteenth Grand Slam overall. Court became the first woman to complete the Career Grand Slam in the Open Era. She would win the remaining Grand Slam of the year, thus also becoming the first woman to complete the Calendar Grand Slam in the Open Era.[2]
