Second-seeded Chris Evert defeated Helena Suková, 6-7(4-7), 6-1, 6-3 to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 1984 Australian Open. When winning her third round match, Evert became the first tennis player of the Open Era to win 1,000 matches. She finished the fortnight with a 1,003-97 match record.[1]

Martina Navratilova was the defending champion, and entered this tournament with a 70-match winning streak, and six consecutive Grand Slam titles. However, she was upset in the semifinals by Helena Suková. Despite this loss, Navratilova's 74-match winning streak remains the longest in the Open Era; she was attempting to complete the elusive Grand Slam.

Wendy Turnbull reaching the semifinals marked the last time an Australian woman reached that stage of the tournament until Ashleigh Barty did so in the 2020 edition of the tournament.
