Serena Williams was the two-time defending champion and successfully defended her title, defeating Caroline Wozniacki in the final, 6–3, 6–3. Williams did not lose a set in the entire tournament and did not lose more than three games in any set. This was Williams' 18th Grand Slam singles title, tying the number won by Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. With the victory, Serena tied the Open Era record of six US Open titles held by Evert. This was Williams' third US Open championship that she competed in without losing a set, also tying Evert.[1]

This tournament was the Grand Slam debut of CiCi Bellis, who became the youngest player to win a match at the US Open since 1996 (and the youngest American to do so since 1986) when she defeated the twelfth seed Dominika Cibulková in the first round at the age of 15.[2][3][4]

All three top seeds (Williams, Simona Halep and Petra Kvitová) were in contention for the World No. 1 ranking at the start of the tournament. Williams retained the top position after Halep and Kvitová both lost in the third round.
