2000 Australian Open – Men's Singles

First-seeded Andre Agassi defeated defending champion Yevgeny Kafelnikov in the final, 3–6, 6–3, 6–2, 6–4 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2000 Australian Open. This was the first time a man made four consecutive grand slam finals since Rod Laver in 1969. If not for Agassi's loss to Pete Sampras in the 1999 Wimbledon final, he would have won a non-calendar grand slam.

This was notably the first Australian Open that Roger Federer competed in and the first time he went beyond the first round in a grand slam. Also, this marks the beginning of Federer's 65-consecutive slam appearance streak, which ended with his withdrawal at the 2016 French Open. This was also where former champion Jim Courier made his final grand slam appearance.
