Venus Williams defeated compatriot and world No. 1 Lindsay Davenport in the final, 4-6, 7-6(7-4), 9-7 to win the Ladies' Singles tennis title at the 2005 Wimbledon Championships.[1] It was the longest Wimbledon women's final match in history, lasting two hours and 45 minutes.[2] She became the first woman since Helen Wills in 1935 and the first in the Open era to win the Wimbledon title after saving a match point against her.[3] This was Venus's third Wimbledon singles title, fifth Grand Slam singles title overall, and her first since the 2001 US Open.[3]Maria Sharapova was the defending champion, but lost to Venus Williams in the semifinals.[4]

The first week of the tournament was headlined by two major upsets - Justine Henin-Hardenne's first round defeat marked the first time in the Open Era the reigning French Open champion had lost their opening match at Wimbledon, while Serena Williams's loss in the third round was her earliest exit at any Grand Slam tournament since the 1999 French Open.[5][6]
