Djokovic became the first man to win the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon titles in the same calendar year since Rod Laver in 1969 and the first to achieve the "Surface Slam" (winning majors on three different surfaces in a calendar year) since Nadal in 2010. He also became the fifth man in the Open Era to win the "Channel Slam" (French Open/Wimbledon double).
Federer became the oldest man to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in the Open Era and the oldest man to reach the quarterfinals at any major since Ken Rosewall in 1977. By winning his third-round match, he completed 1250 wins in men's singles on the ATP Tour and completed 105 wins at Wimbledon by winning his fourth-round match, the joint-most at any major in the Open Era (tied with Nadal at the French Open). The 18 quarterfinals and 119 matches he has contested or played at Wimbledon are both tournament records. In the quarterfinals, Federer lost in straight sets at Wimbledon for the first time since 2002. He received only his third bagel ever in Grand Slam competition (the previous two occurring at the French Open against Pat Rafter in 1999 and Nadal in 2008). After Federer's loss, a first-time major finalist was guaranteed from the bottom half of the draw; Berrettini emerged to be that player.
It was the first time since 2017 that two-time champion Andy Murray participated and the first time since 2005 that he entered via a wildcard. For the first time since 2002, the grass court seeding formula was abandoned and the standard ranking system based on the ATP Rankings was permanently adopted, like at the other three majors. In addition, this was the final edition of Wimbledon to have no matches scheduled on "Middle Sunday."
The following are the seeded players. Seedings are based on ATP rankings as of 21 June 2021. Rankings and points are as before 28 June 2021. Players will count either their 2021 points or 50% of their 2019 points, whichever is greater.
+ The player did not qualify for the tournament in 2019. Accordingly, points defending from the ATP Challenger Tour are deducted instead.
^ Because the 2021 tournament was non-mandatory, the player substituted his 19th best result in place of the points won in this tournament.
The following players would have been seeded, but withdrew before the tournament began. Only half of their defending points are deducted.
