Gustavo Kuerten defeated Sergi Bruguera in the final, 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 to win the men's singles tennis title at the 1997 French Open. He became the first unseeded player since Mats Wilander in 1982 and the second-lowest ranked player ever to win a major, and the first Brazilian male singles player to win a major. Following the win, Kuerten improved in the rankings from world No. 66 to No. 15.

Yevgeny Kafelnikov was the defending champion, but lost to Kuerten in the quarterfinals.
