Svetlana Kuznetsova defeated Dinara Safina in the final, 6-4, 6-2 to win the women's singles tennis title at the 2009 French Open. It was her second major title, after the 2004 US Open. The final marked the third all-Russian final in major singles history, and the first since the 2004 US Open. Safina fell to 0-3 in major finals with the loss. The match was also the conclusion of a series of matches between the pair during the preceding clay court season, with Kuznetsova beating Safina to win the title in Stuttgart, and Safina avenging the loss by beating Kuznetsova in Rome.

Ana Ivanovic was the defending champion, but lost in the fourth round to Victoria Azarenka.

After prevailing in the fourth round, Sorana Cîrstea became the first player born in the 1990s to reach a major quarterfinal.[1]
