Svetlana Kuznetsova won the title, defeating compatriot Elena Dementieva in the final, 6-3, 7-5, to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2004 US Open. Kuznetsova dropped just one set the entire tournament, to Lindsay Davenport in the semifinals. She became the third Russian woman, after Anastasia Myskina and Maria Sharapova (who won the French Open and Wimbledon, respectively, earlier in the season), to win a Grand Slam that year. This was also the second-ever all-Russian Grand Slam final, the first being at the French Open earlier in the year, where Myskina also defeated Dementieva.

Justine Henin was the defending champion, but lost to Nadia Petrova in the fourth round. As a result, Amélie Mauresmo took over the world No. 1 ranking for the first time following the tournament despite losing to Dementieva in the quarterfinals.

This was also the first US Open main draw appearance for the 2011 champion Samantha Stosur. She was beaten by Petrova in the second round.

The quarterfinal match in this tournament between Serena Williams and Jennifer Capriati is often considered the main catalyst for the International Tennis Federation adoption of Hawk-Eye triangulation technology as an official method of reviewing line calls. Hawk-Eye was used by television coverage during the match, with results suggesting several crucial points awarded to Capriati were incorrectly called at the expense of Williams. The most egregious of these errors was a potential Williams winner in the first game of the final set that appeared to be well within the left baseline; while the line judge called the ball in, the referee awarded the point to Capriati. Williams, who would have had the advantage in the deuce, now found herself having to fend off Capriati's advantage. While Williams was successful in eliminating the initial advantage, Capriati ultimately ended up winning the deuce, and Williams never recovered, losing the final set 6-4. Following outcry from spectators and the press, the United States Tennis Association suspended official Mariana Alves for the remainder of the tournament and apologized to Williams.[1] The ITF tested the Hawk-eye system in an offical capacity the next year, ultimately approving it for official use.
