1995 French Open – Women's Singles

Arantxa Sánchez Vicario was the defending champion, but lost in the final to Steffi Graf. Sánchez Vicario lost the World No. 1 ranking to Graf following this tournament, and would never recapture it. That would remain the last time until 2013 that the top two seeded players would play each other in the French Open final.

The match between Virginie Buisson and Noëlle van Lottum was the longest women's match in the game, spanned 4 hours and 7 minutes. This would later be broken by Barbora Záhlavová-Strýcová and Regina Kulikova in the 2010 Australian Open.

The tournament was also notable for being the first appearance of future World No. 1 Amélie Mauresmo competed in the main draw.
