Bill Tilden defeated Wallace Johnson 6–1, 6–3, 6–1 in the final to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 1921 U.S. National Championships.[2] It was Tilden's second U.S. Championships title and his fourth Grand Slam title overall. Tilden became the first male tennis player to win four consecutive Grand Slam single events.

The tournament began on September 9, weeks after the conclusion of the corresponding Women's Singles event, and ended on 19th. For the first time, the men's tournament was held at the Germantown Cricket Club in Philadelphia instead of at Forest Hills.[3]
