Jennifer Capriati successfully defended her title, defeating Martina Hingis 4-6, 7-6(9-7), 6-2 in the final to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2002 Australian Open. This was Capriati's second Australian Open title, and her third and final Grand Slam singles title. Capriati saved four match points in the final against Hingis to win the title.

Future world No. 2 and two-time Grand Slam champion Svetlana Kuznetsova made her Grand Slam debut here, where she lost to Iroda Tulyaganova in the second round. Also, future world No. 4 and 2011 US Open champion Samantha Stosur made her Grand Slam debut, losing in the first round to Greta Arn.

Finals

In a repeat of the previous year's final, three-time former champion Hingis won the first set 6-4 having led 5-1 at one stage. Hingis then took a 4-0 lead in the second set, and held 3 championship points, but Capriati fought back to take it into a tiebreaker, which Hingis had another championship point at 7-6 in the tiebreak, but Capriati saved it and eventually won the tiebreaker 9-7. Hingis then broke Capriati's serve in the third set to lead 2-1, but defending champion Capriati won the next five games to complete a 4-6, 7-6(9-7), 6-2 victory and in doing so gained the record for most match points saved in a Grand Slam final.
