The 1999 DFS Classic – Singles was the singles event of the seventeenth edition of the Aegon Classic, a WTA Tier III tournament held in Birmingham, England, United Kingdom and part of the European grass court season. There was no defending champion in 1999 due to the cancellation of the 1998 final as a result of rain.

Julie Halard-Decugis won in the final 6–2, 3–6, 6–4 against compatriot Nathalie Tauziat.
