1999 Australian Open – Women's Singles

Martina Hingis was the two-time defending champion, and she successfully defended her title by defeating unseeded Amélie Mauresmo, 6–2, 6–3, in the final to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 1999 Australian Open. With this win, she joined Margaret Court, Evonne Goolagong, Steffi Graf and Monica Seles as the only women to have won three consecutive Australian Open titles.

This was future number one Mauresmo's first Grand Slam final, and it would be her only Grand Slam final until 2006 despite being one of the top players of the early 2000s.

Prior to her semifinal defeat to Hingis, Monica Seles was 33 matches undefeated at the Australian Open, dating back to her first match in 1991, the most by a woman in the Open Era.[1]

This tournament was the first Grand Slam in which Nadia Petrova and Elena Dementieva competed in the main draw.[2] They lost to Dominique Van Roost and Hingis in the first and second rounds respectively. It was also the last Australian Open appearance for four-time champion Steffi Graf, who lost to Seles in the quarterfinals.
