Top seed Martina Navratilova was upset in the fourth round by Kathy Horvath. It was her only loss for the entire year.

This tournament was also notable for having 128 players involved for the first time, and for being the first Grand Slam appearance of future world No. 1 Steffi Graf. At 13 years, 11 months and 9 days, Graf became the youngest player to compete in the main draw of a Grand Slam.

This is notably the final Grand Slam appearance for former World No. 1 and 7-time Grand Slam champion Evonne Goolagong.

It would be 34 years before Jelena Ostapenko became the next unseeded woman to reach the final.[3]
