2003 Wimbledon Championships – Men's Singles

Lleyton Hewitt was the defending champion, but he lost in the first round to Ivo Karlović. As a result of this loss, Hewitt became one of only two defending Wimbledon men's singles champions to lose in the first round of their defence, the other being Manuel Santana, the 1966 champion, who lost in the first round in 1967 to Charlie Pasarell.

With the loss of Hewitt, Andre Agassi and the reigning French Open champion Juan Carlos Ferrero before the fourth round, there was guaranteed to be a first time Grand Slam champion. This result was the first time in the Open Era that none of the quarterfinalists had previously won a Grand Slam title.

Roger Federer defeated Mark Philippoussis in the final, 7–6(7–5), 6–2, 7–6(7–3) to win the Gentlemen's Singles tennis title at the 2003 Wimbledon Championships.[1] It was Federer's first Grand Slam tournament win, the first of a record 8 Gentleman's singles titles at Wimbledon and a record 20 Grand Slam singles titles.

This was also notable for being the first Grand Slam competition in which future Wimbledon champion and World No. 1 Rafael Nadal competed in the main draw, in which he lost to Paradorn Srichaphan in the third round.
