Second-seeded Andre Agassi defeated Rainer Schüttler 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 in the final to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2003 Australian Open. This was Agassi's eighth and last Grand Slam title, his first having come at the 1992 Wimbledon Championships.[1][2] Agassi's win in the final was his 21st consecutive match win at the Australian Open as he won the title in 2000 and 2001 (he initially participated at the 2002 event, but withdrew due to injury).

Thomas Johansson was the defending champion, but he did not participate this year due to an injury.

It was notable for the first grand slam appearance from Spaniard David Ferrer, who lost to Lee Hyung-taik in the first round and was also the final Grand Slam appearance of former No. 4 player Richard Krajicek.
