Serena Williams was the defending champion, but was defeated in the second round by Garbiñe Muguruza.[1]

Maria Sharapova won her second French Open title and 5th major overall by defeating first-time finalist Simona Halep 6–4, 6–7(5–7), 6–4 in a match that lasted over three hours. It was the first time since 2001 that the final went to three sets.[2]

Halep became the first Romanian to reach the final since Virginia Ruzici in 1980.

The top three seeds (Williams, Li Na and Agnieszka Radwańska) were in contention for the world No. 1 ranking at the start of the tournament. However, they all failed to reach the fourth round and so Williams retained the top spot in the end.
