Flavia Pennetta was the defending champion, but retired from professional tennis at the end of the 2015 season.

Angelique Kerber won the title, defeating Karolína Plíšková in the final, 6–3, 4–6, 6–4. It was Kerber's second Grand Slam singles title. She became the first German to win the US Open since Steffi Graf in 1996.[1]

Serena Williams was attempting to set new Open Era records by winning a 23rd Grand Slam singles title and a seventh US Open singles title, but she lost in the semifinals to Plíšková. In doing so, she remained with an overall of 22 Major titles shared with Graf and six US Open titles shared with Chris Evert.[2]

Plíšková became the first Czech woman to make the US Open final since 1993, and only the fourth player to beat both of the Williams sisters in the same Grand Slam tournament (she beat Venus Williams in the fourth round).[3]

Kerber attained the WTA no. 1 ranking for the first time at the end of the tournament after Williams failed to reach the final. In addition to Kerber and Williams, Garbiñe Muguruza and Agnieszka Radwańska were also in contention for the No. 1 ranking at the start of the tournament.[4][5]

Former world No. 1 and 2008 French Open champion Ana Ivanovic played the final match of her professional career in the first round where she lost to Denisa Allertová. She would announce her retirement prior to the 2017 season because of ongoing injuries.[6]
