Nadal retained the ATP no. 1 singles ranking by defending the title. Nadal and Novak Djokovic were in contention for the top ranking at the start of the tournament.

This edition of the tournament witnessed the top four seeds advancing to the semifinals. The tournament saw the end of the streak of Djokovic, who was one away from tying John McEnroe for best start to a season with 42 wins, before he was defeated by Federer in the semifinals.

Although this was the sixth time that Nadal won the French Open, this was the first time since 2001 in which the men's top seed won the French Open.[1]
