Garbiñe Muguruza defeated defending champion Serena Williams 7-5, 6-4, to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2016 French Open. Williams was attempting, for the third time, to equal Steffi Graf's Open Era record of 22 major singles titles. She was also attempting to become only the second player, after Steffi Graf, to complete a quadruple Career Grand Slam.[1] Muguruza became just the second Spanish woman in history, after three-time champion Arantxa Sánchez Vicario, to win the French Open.[2]

Williams retained the WTA no. 1 singles ranking after Agnieszka Radwa?ska and Angelique Kerber lost in fourth and first rounds, respectively.

Kiki Bertens became the first Dutch woman to reach the semi-final of a Grand Slam event since Betty Stöve reached the same stage, at the 1977 US Open.[3]

The tournament marked the first time that former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki did not play in the main draw of a Grand Slam singles event since her major debut at the 2007 French Open, ending a streak of 36 consecutive appearances. The reason for her withdrawal was an ankle injury.[4]
