Martina Navratilova was the defending champion, but she lost in the quarterfinals to Zina Garrison.

Steffi Graf captured the title, beating Gabriela Sabatini in the final 6-3, 3-6, 6-1. As a result, Steffi became the third woman to complete a Calendar Year Grand Slam, after Maureen Connolly Brinker and Margaret Court. This was her fourth step to completing the first and so far only Calendar Year Golden Slam. The match was also the first South American female tennis player to reach Grand Slam final, Sabatini would go on to reach two more Slam finals for her career.
