Thomas Johansson was the defending champion, but he did not participate this year due to an injury.

It was notable for the first grand slam appearance from Spaniard David Ferrer, who lost to Lee Hyung-taik in the first round and was also the final Grand Slam appearance of former No. 4 player Richard Krajicek.
