Women's Singles
2006 Wimbledon Championships
Champion Amélie Mauresmo
Runner-up Justine Henin-Hardenne
Final score 2–6, 6–3, 6–4

Venus Williams was the defending champion, but she lost in the third round against Jelena Janković.

Amélie Mauresmo won her first (and only) Wimbledon title, defeating Justine Henin-Hardenne in the final, 2–6, 6–3, 6–4. It was her second and last Grand Slam title, having won the Australian Open earlier in the year; on that occasion, Henin-Hardenne retired due to a stomach bug. It was the first Wimbledon final since 1999 not to feature either of the Williams sisters.
