Steffi Graf was the defending champion, and she successfully defended her title by defeating Natalia Zvereva, 6–0, 6–0, in the final.[1] The match lasted only 32[2][3][4] minutes, the shortest-ever and most one-sided Grand Slam final, and it is the only "double bagel" Grand Slam final of the Open Era.

Graf recorded a total of six 6–0 sets during her seven matches, and was her second step to complete the first and so far only Calendar Year Golden Slam. Also of note is that this was the first grand slam final not to be contested by either Martina Navratilova or Chris Evert since the 1981 French Open.

This tournament was the first Grand Slam to feature future Wimbledon Champion and French Open finalist Conchita Martínez.
