Roger Federer was the defending champion but lost in the semifinals to Marat Safin despite holding a match point in the fourth set.

Safin won the title, defeating home player Lleyton Hewitt in the final, 1–6, 6–3, 6–4, 6–4. It was Safin's second and last Grand Slam title, having also won the 2000 U.S. Open.[1][2]

The final attracted a large number of viewers in Australia, averaging 4.05 million viewers.[3] The viewing audience remains one of the highest in Australian viewing history.

This tournament was notable for being the first Grand Slam tournament in which future World Number 1 Novak Djokovic competed in the main draw. It also still remains the last Grand Slam where none of the "Big Four" of Federer, Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray progressed past the semi-finals.
