Maria Sharapova won her second French Open title and 5th major overall by defeating first-time finalist Simona Halep 6-4, 6-7(5-7), 6-4, to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2014 French Open. In a match that lasted over three hours, it was the first time since 2001 that the final went to three sets.[1] Halep became the first Romanian to reach the final since Virginia Ruzici in 1980.

Serena Williams was the defending champion, but was defeated in the second round by Garbiñe Muguruza.[2]

The top three seeds (Williams, Li Na and Agnieszka Radwa?ska) were in contention for the world No. 1 ranking at the start of the tournament. However, they all failed to reach the fourth round and so Williams retained the top spot in the end. As a result, this marked the first time in the Open Era the top three seeds failed to reach the fourth round of the French Open, and any major.
