Justine Henin-Hardenne was the defending champion, but lost in the second round to Tathiana Garbin. This was Henin-Hardenne's only loss at the French Open between 2003 and 2007. Martina Navratilova played in her first Grand Slam since 1994 Wimbledon Championships, having been unseeded for the first time since the 1973 US Open and was being awarded a wild card, it would also be her final French Open singles appearance.

This was also the first Grand Slam tournament in which future two-time champion Maria Sharapova reached the quarter-finals.[1]
