Third seed Amélie Mauresmo defeated Justine Henin-Hardenne in the final 6-1, 2-0 ret., to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2006 Australian Open. Henin was suffering from stomach cramps resulting from the accidental misuse of anti-inflammatories for a chronic shoulder injury.[1] This was the third match Mauresmo played during the tournament where her opponent retired.[2] Mauresmo and Henin-Hardenne would have a rematch in the final of Wimbledon later that year, where Mauresmo would win in three sets.

Serena Williams was the defending champion, but she was defeated in the third round by Daniela Hantuchová.[3]

This tournament saw three-time Australian Open champion Martina Hingis make her Grand Slam comeback since 2002 US Open after a three-year absence from the WTA Tour,[4] and was also the first Grand Slam in which future World No. 1 and two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka competed in the main draw.[5]
