Svetlana Kuznetsova won in the final 6–2, 6–4, against Agnieszka Radwańska to win the tournament for the second time.[1]

This tournament saw a WTA tour record, with world No. 226 Zhang Shuai defeating then world No. 1 Dinara Safina in the second round, and as such becoming the lowest-ranked player to ever defeat a reigning world No. 1.[2] Serena Williams replaced Safina as world No. 1 following the tournament by virtue of winning her second round match, though Williams herself would lose in the third round.[3]
