Yvonne Prevost was champion.
The champion was the only entrant for the third consecutive year.
évost, or at least a Mlle Pr
évost, won the women's singles title at the Closed French Championships in 1900. Together with Adine Masson, Pr
évost was the best of the early French female lawn tennis players. According to "Lawn Tennis at Home and Abroad", "Mlle Pr
évost plays a hard, steady game, and possesses a very severe forehand stroke, and places well. She is very quick about the court and if she could only improve her backhand she would be very hard to beat."
In 1900, Mlle Pr
évost was also runner-up at what is now recognized as the first women's singles event at the Olympic Games held that year at the lawn tennis club located on the Ile de Puteaux in Paris.
However, more than one reliable contemporary source also mentions a Hélène Pr
évost playing lawn tennis in France at this time. Yvonne and Hélène could have been sisters, or related in some other way.
