Lleyton Hewitt defeated Pete Sampras 7-6(7-4), 6-1, 6-1 in the final to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2001 US Open. Marat Safin was the defending champion, but lost in the semifinals to Pete Sampras.

Former champion Pat Rafter made his final Grand Slam singles appearance, losing in the fourth round to Sampras. This was the first Grand Slam main draw appearance of future ATP Finals champion David Nalbandian.

This was the first time the US Open used 32 seeds instead of 16, in order to better spread out the higher ranked players.
