Angelique Kerber defeated Karolína Plí?ková in the final, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2016 US Open. It was Kerber's second Grand Slam singles title. She became the first German to win the US Open since Steffi Graf in 1996.[1]Flavia Pennetta was the defending champion, but retired from professional tennis at the end of the 2015 season.

Plí?ková became the first Czech woman to make the US Open final since 1993, and only the fourth player to beat both of the Williams sisters in the same Grand Slam tournament (she beat Venus Williams in the fourth round).[2]

Kerber attained the WTA no. 1 ranking for the first time at the end of the tournament after Serena Williams failed to reach the final. In addition to Kerber and Williams, Garbiñe Muguruza and Agnieszka Radwa?ska were also in contention for the No. 1 ranking at the start of the tournament.[3][4]

Serena Williams was attempting to set new Open Era records by winning a 23rd Grand Slam singles title and a seventh US Open singles title, but she lost in the semifinals to Plí?ková.[5]

Former world No. 1 and 2008 French Open champion Ana Ivanovic played the final match of her professional career in the first round, when she lost to Denisa Allertová. She would announce her retirement prior to the 2017 season because of ongoing injuries.[6]
