First-seeded Steffi Graf defeated the record six-time defending champion Martina Navratilova in the final, 5-7, 6-2, 6-1 to win the Ladies' Singles tennis title at the 1988 Wimbledon Championships.[1] This was Graf's third step towards completing the first, and so far only, Calendar Year Golden Slam.

After Graf took a 5-3 lead in the first set, Navratilova won six straight games allowing her to win the first set and take a 2-0 lead in the second set. Graf then came back winning 12 of the next 13 games and the match.[2]

The semi-final match between Chris Evert and Navratilova was the last time they faced each other in a Grand Slam, with Navratilova extending her lead in their head-to-head rivalry in Grand Slam tournaments to 14-8.
