Goran Ivanišević became this tournament's champion, defeating Patrick Rafter, 6–3, 3–6, 6–3, 2–6, 9–7, in the final. He became the first wild card to win a major. Before the tournament he was ranked 125th[1] and after the win he was 16th. The win was especially satisfying for Ivanišević, as he had made the finals three times before (in 1992, 1994 and 1998) but lost each (to Agassi, and Sampras twice, respectively).

29-year-old Pete Sampras was the four-time defending champion, but he lost in the fourth round to 19-year-old and future seven-time Wimbledon Champion Roger Federer. The Sampras-Federer match was the only time the two ever competed against each other in any ATP event as active tour players. This was the first grand slam that Federer was seeded.
