Andre Agassi won in the final, 1-6, 2-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4, against former world No. 4 Andriy Medvedev to capture the Men's Singles tennis title at the 1999 French Open. With this win, Agassi became the second man, after Rod Laver, to complete a career Grand Slam in the Open Era. He also achieved a career Super Slam, the only men's singles player to do so. Carlos Moyà was the defending champion, but lost in the fourth round to Agassi.

This tournament was also the first Grand Slam tournament in which future 20-time Grand Slam champion and World No. 1 Roger Federer and future French Open champion Gaston Gaudio competed in the main draw; they lost to Patrick Rafter and Àlex Corretja in the first round and third round, respectively.
