This tournament saw a number of surprises, including a first round defeat of World No. 1 and first seed Martina Hingis at the hands of Australian qualifier and World No. 129 Jelena Dokic; prior to this event, Hingis had reached the semifinals of every Grand Slam event since the 1996 US Open, 11 consecutive majors. This tournament also saw the first time that a qualifier entered the semifinals of a Grand Slam in the Open Era, with Alexandra Stevenson defeating Dokic in the quarterfinals. This tournament also marked the Grand Slam debut of eventual No. 1 Kim Clijsters as a qualifier, losing to Graf in the fourth round.

Mirjana Lučić, who reached the semifinals, would not reach another Grand Slam semifinal again until the 2017 Australian Open.[2]
