Goran Ivanišević was the defending champion, but withdrew due to having shoulder surgery.

World No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt defeated David Nalbandian in the final, 6–1, 6–3, 6–2 to win the Gentlemen's Singles tennis title at the 2002 Wimbledon Championships.[1] It was Hewitt's second Grand Slam title, after winning the 2001 US Open. Hewitt was also the first Australian to win the title since Pat Cash in 1987.

The 2002 Championships made history due to the unprecedentedly poor results of the top players. With the exception of Lleyton Hewitt and world no. 4 Tim Henman, the top 17 seeds were knocked out before the fourth round. This granted relatively unknown players an unusually high chance of success, especially as Hewitt and Henman were in the same half of the draw and played each other in the semi-finals.

In one of the biggest upsets in Wimbledon history, seven-time champion Pete Sampras was eliminated by lucky loser George Bastl of Switzerland in the second round. It would be Sampras' final match ever at Wimbledon. The 1992 champion Andre Agassi suffered a second-round defeat to unseeded Paradorn Srichaphan of Thailand, while future eight-time champion Roger Federer was defeated in the first round by Croatian qualifier Mario Ančić, his last defeat at Wimbledon before his record-tying five straight Wimbledon-titles between 2003-07. The 1996 champion Richard Krajicek also made his final appearance at Wimbledon, reaching the quarterfinals before losing to Xavier Malisse of Belgium.
