Gastón Gaudio (ranked 44th[1][2]) won in the final 0–6, 3–6, 6–4, 6–1, 8–6, against Guillermo Coria. Gaudio became the first Argentine player to win a major since Guillermo Vilas in the 1979 Australian Open.

This was the first Grand Slam tournament in which Roger Federer competed as No. 1. He lost in the third round to former No. 1 and three-time champion Gustavo Kuerten, in what would be his last pre-quarterfinal exit from a major until his second round loss to Sergiy Stakhovsky in the 2013 Wimbledon Championships, a run of 36 quarterfinals (or better) in a row.

Until the 2017 Australian Open, this would be the last Grand Slam event where the top two seeds would fail to reach the quarterfinals of a major. With Federer's loss to Kuerten, number two seed Andy Roddick also lost in the second round to Olivier Mutis.

The first round match between Fabrice Santoro and Arnaud Clément was the longest match of the Open Era in 6 hours and 33 minutes under two days. John Isner and Nicolas Mahut broke this record at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships.

As of the conclusion of the 2019 French Open, this was the last Grand Slam in which none of the semi-finalists had previously won a Grand Slam singles tournament. This was also the most recent French Open final to be decided in five sets,[3] and the most recent Grand Slam final in which the winner came back from trailing two sets to love.[4]
