Serena Williams defeated Dinara Safina in the final 6–0, 6–3, to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2009 Australian Open. It was Williams' fourth career Australian Open singles title, her tenth Grand Slam title and Safina's second career Grand Slam final loss. By winning the title, Williams regained the World No. 1 ranking from Jelena Janković for the first time since October 2008.

Maria Sharapova was the defending champion, but withdrew from the tournament, due to a recurring shoulder injury which also ruled her out of the 2008 US Open.

This was also the first Australian Open to feature three Russian semifinalists with Vera Zvonareva, Dinara Safina and Elena Dementieva.
