Serena Williams defeated world No. 1 and compatriot Lindsay Davenport in the final to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2005 Australian Open, this despite being three match points down in the third set of her semifinal match against Maria Sharapova. Justine Henin-Hardenne was the defending champion, but she could not compete this year due to a knee injury.

This event is notable for the first Grand Slam appearances for future world No. 1 and Grand Slam champion Ana Ivanovic and double Grand Slam champion (and China's first Grand Slam singles champion) Li Na. Both reached the third round before losing to Amélie Mauresmo and Maria Sharapova respectively.
