Jennifer Capriati was the two-time defending champion, but lost to Marlene Weingärtner in the first round.

Serena Williams defeated Venus Williams 7–6(7–4), 3–6, 6–4 in the final to win the title. This was her fourth straight Grand Slam triumph and also with this victory she completed the "Serena Slam", despite being 1–5 down in the third set & facing two match points against Kim Clijsters in the semifinals.

This tournament was also notable for being the first Grand Slam in which future World No. 1 and five-time grand slam champion Maria Sharapova competed in the main draw, aged 15, as well as that of US Open Champion Flavia Pennetta and future World No. 1 and US Open finalist Jelena Jankovic. Both players drew Klára Koukalová (who was appeared in her first Grand Slam match) and Silvia Farina Elia in their respective first round matches, and were defeated.
