The 2012 Wimbledon women’s main draw singles 1st round matches begin on Monday 25 June at 11:30am local time at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in London, United Kingdom. Wimbledon has 128 players vying for the title, a maximum of 2,000 WTA ranking points and £1,150,000 (pounds sterling) for the winner.

The Top 32 ranked players amongst the 108 Direct Acceptances become the seeds. The 32 seeds ranged in rankings from World No.1 and 2011 Wimbledon runner-up Maria SHARAPOVA through to No.35 and dual Grand Slam singles champion Svetlana KUZNETSOVA.
