This was the first major main draw appearance for CiCi Bellis, who at the age of 15 became the youngest player to win a match at the US Open since 1996 when she defeated the twelfth seed Dominika Cibulková.[2][3][4]

The top three seeds (Williams, Simona Halep and Petra Kvitová) were in contention for the world No. 1 ranking at the start of the tournament. Williams retained the top position after Halep and Kvitová lost in the third round.
