Agassi competed in the Australian Open this season for the first time in his career. He would go on to win three more in 2000, 2001, and 2003.

A memorable moment occurred in the quarterfinal match between Sampras and Jim Courier. Sampras had fought back from a 2-sets down deficit to tie it at 2–2. Shortly after winning the first game of the fifth set, Sampras was overcome with grief over his then-coach, Tim Gullikson. Gullikson had suffered several seizures while touring with Sampras in Europe in late 1994. Gullikson insisted on accompanying Sampras to the 1995 Australian Open, but shortly before Sampras' quarter final match against Courier, Gullikson had collapsed during a practice session after suffering another seizure, with tests proving inconclusive at Epworth Hospital and being flown home to Chicago for further tests. During the fifth set of his quarter final, Sampras retired to his chair and broke down in tears. When he returned to the game, he found it difficult to continue and Courier offered to finish the match the next day. Sampras declined and was able to close out the match. Gullikson was later diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer and would pass away in May 1996.
