World No. 2 Monica Seles won her third major of the year with this title, defeating four-time champion Martina Navratilova in the final 7-6(7-1), 6-1, to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 1991 U.S. Open. Following this win, Monica recaptured the world No. 1 ranking from her rival Steffi Graf, and would end up holding it until her 1993 stabbing.

Gabriela Sabatini was the defending champion, but she lost in the quarterfinals to Jennifer Capriati. This tournament was notable for being the first Grand Slam tournament in which Lindsay Davenport, the 1998 US Open singles champion, competed in the main draw.[1]
