This was the first US Open that future champions Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka competed in the main draw.

Noteworthy in this tournament was a strong performance by the American men, despite former champion and world #1 Andy Roddick losing in the first round.

Wildcard James Blake made the quarterfinal, upsetting No. 2 Rafael Nadal in the third round before eventually losing to Agassi in a five-set match.

Unheralded American Robby Ginepri, whose run was enhanced by Roddick's early defeat, made it all the way to the semi-final and lost to Agassi in another five-set match.
