The 2009 China Open – Women's Singles was the women's singles event of the China Open, a WTA Premier Mandatory tennis tournament held in October in Beijing. Jelena Janković was the defending champion, but lost in the second round against Peng Shuai.

Svetlana Kuznetsova won in the final 6–2, 6–4, against Agnieszka Radwańska to win the tournament for the second time.[1]

This tournament saw a WTA tour record, with world No. 226 Zhang Shuai defeating then world No. 1 Dinara Safina in the second round, and as such becoming the lowest-ranked player to ever defeat a reigning world No. 1.[2] Serena Williams replaced Safina as world No. 1 following the tournament by virtue of winning her second round match, though Williams herself would lose in the third round.[3]
