Kim Clijsters won her first Australian Open title and her fourth (and last) Grand Slam overall by beating Li Na 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 in the final to capture the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2011 Australian Open. Li became the first Asian player to make the final of a Grand Slam in singles. Though she lost in the final, she would go on to win the French Open a few months later. Serena Williams was the two-time defending champion, but a foot injury during the middle of the 2010 season prevented her defending the title.

The fourth round match between Svetlana Kuznetsova and Francesca Schiavone, which lasted 4 hours and 44 minutes, was the longest women's singles match in Grand Slam, with Schiavone winning it in the third set, 16-14.

Notably this was the last Grand Slam that two former world No. 1 players Justine Henin and Dinara Safina would ever play, being forced into Henin's second retirement due to an elbow injury and Safina's back injury.[1]

This was also the first Grand Slam that Caroline Wozniacki competed as the World No. 1; she lost to Li in the semifinals.
