The 2014 Wimbledon Championships was a tennis tournament played on outdoor grass courts. It was the 128th edition of the Wimbledon Championships and the third Grand Slam event of the year. It took place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, and ran from 23 June to 6 July. It consisted of events for professional players in singles, doubles and mixed doubles play. Junior and wheelchair players also took part in singles and doubles events as well as retired players in invitation doubles.

Andy Murray of Great Britain was the defending champion in men's singles, but lost to Grigor Dimitrov in the quarterfinals. Marion Bartoli of France was the defending champion in women's singles; however, her retirement from tennis in 2013 meant that she did not return to defend her title and the opening Ladies singles match on day two on Centre court was played by Bartoli's opponent, runner-up, Sabine Lisicki.
