Safin also defeated No. 1 seed Andy Roddick in the quarterfinal. This was the only time in Roddick's career where he was seeded No. 1 at a Grand Slam tournament. Andre Agassi was the defending champion, but was defeated in the semifinals by Marat Safin. This ended his streak of 26 match wins at the Australian Open (he did not play in 2002).

In the first round, 13 seeded players lost in the first round of the 2004 Australian Open, the most seeds losing in the first round since the 32-seed draw was adopted at the 2001 Wimbledon Championships.
