Maria Sharapova defeated Sara Errani in the final, 6-3, 6-2 to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2012 French Open. This was Sharapova's first French Open title and she completed the career Grand Slam.[1] It was her first Grand Slam since winning the 2008 Australian Open and her first since major shoulder surgery which threatened to end her career four years prior.[2]

Li Na was the defending champion, but lost in the fourth round to qualifier Yaroslava Shvedova, the first time a defending champion was defeated by a qualifier in the tournament's history.

The tournament was notable for one of the biggest upsets in recent years as World No. 111 Virginie Razzano beat World No. 5 and 2002 champion Serena Williams in the first round despite Williams was having two match points at 5-1 on a second set tiebreak. It is the first (and thus far only) time Williams has lost in the first round of a Grand Slam tournament.[3]

Sharapova regained the WTA no. 1 ranking for the first time in four years by reaching the final, after Victoria Azarenka lost in the fourth round. All of the top three seeds (Azarenka, Sharapova and Agnieszka Radwa?ska) were in contention for the No. 1 ranking at the start of the tournament.

It was also the Grand Slam main draw debut of the future World No. 1 Karolína Plí?ková.
