The 2003 Australian Open was a tennis tournament held in 2003. It was the first Grand Slam event of the 2003 ATP Tour and the 2003 WTA Tour. It was the 91st edition of the event.

Thomas Johansson could not defend his 2002 title due to an injury which would rule him out for all of 2003. Jennifer Capriati was unsuccessful in her title defence, being defeated in the first round by German Marlene Weingärtner. Andre Agassi won his fourth Australian Open and final Grand Slam title, defeating Rainer Schüttler in a lopsided final. Serena Williams defeated her sister Venus in the final in three sets, to win her fourth consecutive Grand Slam title to hold all four Grand Slam titles at once.
