The women's singles competition at the 2004 Summer Olympics was part of the tennis program for the games and was held at the Olympic Tennis Centre in Athens, Greece.

Venus Williams was the defending Gold Medalist from 2000, but she lost in the third round to Mary Pierce.[1]

World No. 1 Justine Henin-Hardenne won the Gold Medal, defeating Amélie Mauresmo in the championship match; she won Belgium's only Gold Medal at these Olympics. The second set she lost against French Open champion Anastasia Myskina in the semi-finals was the only one she lost in the entire championships.[2] Unseeded Alicia Molik, who defeated 2000 Silver Medallist Elena Dementieva in the first round, defeated Myskina in the Bronze Medal match.

Former World No. 1 Serena Williams had committed to playing this event, but withdrew one week before the tournament began due to a left knee injury.[3]
