Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie ?afá?ová were the defending champions, but lost in the first round to Kiki Bertens and Johanna Larsson.

Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza had the chance to hold all four Grand Slam championship titles, but lost in the third round to Barbora Krej?íková and Kate?ina Siniaková. It would have been Hingis' second non-calendar year Grand Doubles Slam, following her first in 1998-99.

Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic won the title, defeating Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina in the final, 6-3, 2-6, 6-4. Garcia and Mladenovic became the first all French women's doubles players to win the home Grand Slam since Gail Sherriff Chanfreau and Françoise Dürr in 1971, and the first of any French women to win since Mary Pierce who won in 2000, partnering Hingis.[]
