Justine Henin was the defending champion, but she could not compete this year due to a knee injury.

Serena Williams won her second Australian Open title despite being match point down in the third set of semifinals against Maria Sharapova, defeating World No. 1 and compatriot Lindsay Davenport in the final.

This event is notable for the first Grand Slam appearances from future World No. 1 and Grand Slam Champion Ana Ivanovic, who competed in the main draw and double Grand Slam champion Li Na.
