Fourth-seeded Arantxa Sánchez Vicario won the title, defeating Monica Seles in the final 7-6(7-5), 0-6, 6-2, to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 1998 French Open. This marked the last time Sánchez Vicario defeated Seles at any tournament. It was also the last major final in which either Sánchez Vicario or Seles played.

Iva Majoli was the defending champion, but lost to Lindsay Davenport in the quarterfinals.

Martina Hingis had a chance to hold all four Grand Slam tournaments at once, having won the 1997 Wimbledon Championships, 1997 US Open and 1998 Australian Open, but she lost to Seles in the semifinals.
