The 1999 Australian Open – Women's Singles was the women's singles event of the eighty-seventh edition of the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the year and the most prestigious tournament in the Asia-Pacific and the Southern Hemisphere. Martina Hingis was the two-time defending champion, and she successfully defended her title by defeating Amélie Mauresmo, 6–2, 6–3, in the final. With this win, she joined Margaret Court, Evonne Goolagong Cawley, Steffi Graf and Monica Seles as the only women to have won three consecutive Australian Open titles. Hingis also became the only woman to have won three consecutive Australian Open titles in singles and doubles simultaneously.
This was future number one Amélie Mauresmo's first Grand Slam final, and it would be her only Grand Slam final until 2006 despite being one of the top players of the early 2000s.

This tournament was also notable as being the first Australian Open where former World No. 1 Monica Seles was defeated. Prior to the defeat at the hands of Hingis, Seles was 33 matches undefeated at the Australian Open, the most made by a woman in the Open Era.

This tournament was notable for being the first Grand Slam in which Elena Dementieva competed in the main draw.[1] She drew Martina Hingis in the second round, and was defeated.
