This tournament was the Grand Slam debut of CiCi Bellis, who became the youngest player to win a match at the US Open since 1996 (and the youngest American to do so since 1986) when she defeated the twelfth seed Dominika Cibulková in the first round at the age of 15.[2][3][4]

All three top 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 both lost in the third round.

This was the last time when 8 different women contested in the four grand slam finals of a calendar year.
