Victoria Azarenka was the two-time defending champion, but lost to Agnieszka Radwańska in the quarterfinals.[1]

Li Na won the title, defeating Dominika Cibulková in the final, 7–6(7–3), 6–0, becoming the first Asian Australian Open champion and sixth woman to win the title after being match point down (in the third round against Lucie Šafářová).[2][3][4]

By winning her third round match, women's top seed Serena Williams broke Margaret Court's record of 60 match victories at the Australian Open.[5]
