Wimbledon Ladies’ Singles Champion

The Championships, Wimbledon is an annual tennis tournament created in 1877 and played on outdoor grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) in the Wimbledon suburb of London, United Kingdom.

Ladies’ Singles was first contested in 1884.

History

Wimbledon Championships are played in the last week of June and the first week of July, and has been chronologically the third of the four Grand Slam tournaments of the tennis season since 1987. The event was not held from 1915-1918 because of World War I and again from 1940-1945 because of World War II.

Ladies’ Singles champion receives a sterling silver salver commonly known as the “Venus Rosewater Dish”, or simply the “Rosewater Dish”. The salver which is 18.75 inches (about 48 cm) in diameter is decorated with figures from mythology.

New singles champions are traditionally elected honorary members of the AELTC by the club’s committee. In 2012, the Ladies’ Singles winner received prize money of £1,150,000.
