Serena Williams was the defending champion, but did not participate this year due to injury. Defending finalist and her sister Venus Williams also withdrew before the tournament began due to injury. Their withdrawals from the tournament marked the first time in the Open Era that neither of previous year's finalists played at the US Open.

This was also the first US Open appearance of future champion Flavia Pennetta in the main draw, she lost to Svetlana Kuznetsova in the first round.
