Jennifer Capriati was the defending champion, but she lost to Serena Williams in the semifinals, in what was a rematch of a match from last year's French Open.

Williams then defeated her sister, Venus, to win her first French Open title. This was also her first step towards completing "The Serena Slam".

This tournament was notable for being the first Grand Slam in which future World No. 2 Vera Zvonareva competed in the main draw.[1] She drew Serena Williams in the fourth round, and was defeated.
