1999 French Open – Men


Carlos Moyà was the defending champion, but lost in the fourth round to Andre Agassi.

Andre Agassi won in the final, 1–6, 2–6, 6–4, 6–3, 6–4, against former World No. 4 Andriy Medvedev. With this win, Agassi became the second man, after Rod Laver, to complete a career Grand Slam in the Open Era.

This tournament was also notable for being the first Grand Slam in which future World No. 1 Roger Federer competed in the main draw.
