The men'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.

Yevgeny Kafelnikov was the defending gold medalist won in 2000 and he retired that sport in 2003. Nicolás Massú of Chile defeated Mardy Fish of the United States 6–3, 3–6, 2–6, 6–3, 6–4 in the final to win the Gold Medal in Men's Singles at the 2004 Summer Olympics. Only the final match was best-of-five; all others were best-of-three. Fish won two of the first three sets in the gold medal match.

The major upset in the first round came when Jiří Novák took advantage of Tim Henman's inconsistent play this year beating him in straight sets. The second round saw some more shock wins, none bigger than world number one Roger Federer's defeat at the hands of world 74th ranked Czech, Tomáš Berdych. Former world number one players Juan Carlos Ferrero and Marat Safin's hopes of gold also disappeared as they also both made early exits.
