The 1986 Masters (also known as the 1986 Nabisco Masters for sponsorship reasons)[1] was held in Madison Square Garden, New York City, United States between 1 December and 5 December 1986. It was the year-end championship of the 1986 Nabisco Grand Prix tour. It was also the first edition where the round robin format, which is now associated with the event, was reintroduced. As a result the singles field was halved from 16 down to 8 competitors. Ivan Lendl retained the Masters title as he won it for a fourth time. Lendl defeated Becker in straight sets in a repeat of the 1985 Masters final which took place earlier in the year, in January. In the doubles competition Stefan Edberg and Anders Järryd successfully defended the title.



Czechoslovakia Ivan Lendl defeated West Germany Boris Becker, 6–4, 6–4, 6–4.


Sweden Stefan Edberg / Sweden Anders Järryd defeated France Guy Forget / France Yannick Noah 6–3, 7–6, 6–3.
