Gastón Gaudio was the defending champion, but lost in the fourth round to David Ferrer.

Rafael Nadal won in the final 6–7(6–8), 6–3, 6–1, 7–5 in his first French Open appearance (and first as a seeded player in a major), as well as his first major final, against Mariano Puerta, who also played in his first (and only) grand slam final. This was also the beginning of an unprecedented run of success at Roland Garros for Nadal, who would go on to win the tournament a record twelve times.

This was notably the first French Open that Novak Djokovic competed in and the first time he went beyond the first round in a grand slam. Future three-time Grand Slam champion Stanislas Wawrinka also made his first appearance at a major. 1999 champion Andre Agassi made his last French Open appearance, losing a five-set match to Jarkko Nieminen in the first round.
