Kim Clijsters was the two-time defending champion, but withdrew due to an abdominal injury.

This was the first time in the tournament's history that no American players were seeded at the Top 10.

This was the first US Open main draw appearance for future champion Sloane Stephens; she lost in the third round to Ana Ivanovic.
