Martina Hingis was the defending champion, but she was defeated by Jana Novotná in the semifinals in a rematch of last year's final.

Jana Novotná then defeated Nathalie Tauziat in the final, 6–4, 7–6(7–2), in the final on 4 July 1998 to win the tournament. This was Jana Novotná's first win in a Wimbledon final on her third attempt. This would be the last time a Czech player would win Wimbledon (or win a Grand Slam title) until Petra Kvitová won in 2011.[1]
