After the retirement of The Woodies, the world's top doubles team became The Bryan Twins – [Bob] and [Mike Bryan] of the United States. They were the top seed, but lost in the quarter-finals to Chile's [Fernando González] and [Nicolás Massú]. The four semi-finalists included only one seeded team, India's fifth seed of [Mahesh Bhupathi] and [Leander Paes]. González and Massú won the final in five sets, defeating Germany's [Nicolas Kiefer] and [Rainer Schüttler]. This made Massú the first male Olympic tennis player to win singles and doubles since [Vinnie Richards] in 1924.
