Wimbledon previous women's winners

This year's ladies Wimbledon singles competition looks to be closer than ever and it will be an intriguing contest to see whether the Williams sisters can continue their dominance of the tournament.

Venus and Serena Williams have won Wimbledon seven times between them in the last nine years, Venus with five wins and Serena with two.

This year however has seen the rise of a young Russian called Dinara Safina who up until this year has failed to challenge at Wimbledon but you can be sure everyone will be fearing her this time around.

Safina's first game will attract a lot of attention as one of Britain's most promising female tennis players Anne Keothavong faces off against the Russian in the first round.

Another returning danger is Maria Sharapova who will be fully fit back from injury having played well in the French Open. She is one of just two players (the other being Amelie Mauresmo) to have won Wimbledon during the Williams' sisters period of dominance.

Below is a list of the previous winners of the Wimbledon women's singles title. Will Venus win her third title in a row and sixth altogether or will someone emerge to take the crown for the first time?
