Li Na defeated defending champion Francesca Schiavone in the final, 6–4, 7–6(7–0) to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2011 French Open. Li Na became the first Asian and Chinese Major singles champion.[1]

Caroline Wozniacki and Kim Clijsters were in contention for the WTA No. 1 singles ranking. Wozniacki retained the top ranking after Clijsters lost in the second round, despite herself losing in the third round.[2] This was the first time in the Open Era that neither of the top two seeds progressed past the third round of a Major.[3]

This was the first French Open since 1996 where neither Venus Williams nor Serena Williams participated. It was also the only Major between the 2003 US Open and the 2021 US Open where neither of the Williams sisters participated.[4]

This was also the first Major that future world No. 3, US Open champion, and French Open finalist Sloane Stephens competed in; she was defeated by Elena Baltacha in the first round.
