Li Na defeated defending champion, Francesca Schiavone, 6-4, 7-6(7-0), to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2011 French Open. Li Na became the first Asian and Chinese Grand Slam singles champion.[1]

The top two seeds, Caroline Wozniacki and Kim Clijsters, were in contention for the WTA No. 1 ranking. Clijsters lost in the second round to Arantxa Rus—her earliest exit at a Grand Slam since the 2002 Wimbledon Championships—meaning Wozniacki retained the No. 1 ranking, despite losing in the third round to Daniela Hantuchová.[2] This was the first time in the Open Era that neither of the top two seeds had progressed past the third round of a Grand Slam event.[3]

This was the first Grand Slam since the 2003 US Open where neither Venus Williams nor Serena Williams participated in the tournament, as well as the first time that neither of the Williams sisters played at the French Open since 1996.[4] As of the 2021 French Open, it is the most recent Grand Slam tournament where neither of the Williams sisters participated. This Grand Slam was also the first Grand Slam that future World No. 3, US Open champion, and French Open finalist Sloane Stephens competed in (she was defeated by Elena Baltacha in the first round).
