Naomi Osaka won the title, defeating Petra Kvitová 7–6(7–2), 5–7, 6–4 in the final. By winning the tournament, Osaka took over the WTA no. 1 singles ranking from Simona Halep and also became the first player since Jennifer Capriati to win their first two Grand Slam titles in consecutive fashion. Eleven players had a theoretical chance of becoming no. 1 at the start of the tournament (ten if Halep played her first match).[1] In addition to Kvitová and Wozniacki, Sloane Stephens, Karolína Plíšková, Angelique Kerber, Elina Svitolina, Kiki Bertens, Aryna Sabalenka and Daria Kasatkina were also in contention for the no. 1 ranking at the start of this tournament, but were eliminated from contention as the tournament progressed.[2]

Serena Williams was attempting to equal Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles, but lost in the quarterfinals to Plíšková, despite having four match points.

Amanda Anisimova became the first player born in the 21st century to advance to the fourth round of a Grand Slam singles tournament.

This was the first Australian Open to feature a final set tiebreak. When the score in a final set reaches 6–6, the first player to reach 10 points and be leading by at least 2 points wins the match. Katie Boulter and Ekaterina Makarova became the first players to contest this tiebreak in the main draw, with Boulter emerging victorious.

For the first time since 2009 Wimbledon, all of the top eight seeds reached the third round at a Grand Slam women's singles event.[3]
