Jacco Eltingh and Paul Haarhuis were the defending champions, but Eltingh did not compete this year. Haarhuis competed with American Jared Palmer as the seventh seed, but they were eliminated in the second round by Javier Sánchez and Jan Siemerink.

First seeds Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes won in the final by defeating the unseeded team of Goran Ivanišević and Jeff Tarango, 6–2, 7–5.

This is the first major marks the beginning of Bryan brothers' 76-consecutive slam appearance streak, which ended with Bob Bryan's withdrawal at the 2018 French Open.
