Serena Williams defeated world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka 6-2, 2-6, 7-5 in the final, to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2012 US Open, despite Azarenka serving for the match and leading 5-3 in the third set. It was the first time since 1995 that the final went to three sets. With the victory, Williams became only the third woman in history to win Wimbledon, Olympics, and the US Open in the same season after Steffi Graf and her sister, Venus Williams. Williams dropped just one set the entire tournament, to Azarenka in the final.

Samantha Stosur was the defending champion, but she was defeated in the quarterfinals by Victoria Azarenka.

Three-time US Open champion Kim Clijsters, who was on a 22-match winning streak at Flushing Meadows, lost to Laura Robson in the second round, her earliest exit at the tournament since 2000 and her first defeat since losing to compatriot Justine Henin in the final in 2003. This was also Clijster's last tournament before her second retirement (first was in 2007), until she came back to tour in 2020 at Dubai Tennis Championships.

This tournament served as the first Grand Slam main draw appearance for future two-time Grand Slam champion and world No. 1 Garbiñe Muguruza who lost to Sara Errani in the first round. It was also the first Grand Slam main draw appearance for future WTA Finals champion Elina Svitolina where she was defeated by former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic in the first round. This also marked the first time Ivanovic had reached the quarterfinals of a major since winning the 2008 French Open.
