Serena Williams was the two-time defending champion, but a foot injury during the middle of the 2010 season prevented her defending the titles.
Kim Clijsters won her first Australian Open title and her fourth (and last) Grand Slam overall by beating Li Na 3–6, 6–3, 6–3 in the final. Li became the first Asian player to make the final of a Grand Slam in singles.

Notably this was the last Grand Slam that former World No.1 and 7-time Grand Slam Champion, Justine Henin would ever play, being forced into a second retirement due to an elbow injury.[1]
