Serena Williams defeated her sister Venus Williams 7-6(7-4), 3-6, 6-4 in the final to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2003 Australian Open. It was her fourth consecutive major triumph, completing the "Serena Slam", both a non-calendar year Grand Slam and the career Grand Slam. It was also Venus' record fourth consecutive runner-up finish at a major, losing every final to Serena. Serena saved two match points and was 1-5 down in the third set against Kim Clijsters in the semifinals. This was the first Australian Open final without Martina Hingis since 1996.

Jennifer Capriati was the two-time defending champion, but lost to Marlene Weingärtner in the first round. Capriati's loss marked the first time that a defending Australian Open champion lost in the first round, and the first time at any major that the defending champion lost in the first round since Steffi Graf at the 1994 Wimbledon Championships.

This was the first major appearance of two future world No. 1s: five-time major champion Maria Sharapova and Jelena Jankovi?, who lost to Klára Koukalová and Amanda Coetzer in the first and second rounds respectively. It was also the major main draw debut of future US Open champion Flavia Pennetta, who lost to Silvia Farina Elia in the first round.
