Mats Wilander defeated three-time defending champion Ivan Lendl, 6–4, 4–6, 6–3, 5–7, 6–4 in the final to win the Men's Singles title at the 1988 US Open.[1] This was the longest US Open men's final in history, clocking in at four hours and fifty-four minutes; this record was matched in 2012 when Andy Murray defeated Novak Djokovic in that year's final.[2]

This tournament was notable for being the first Grand Slam in which Pete Sampras and Jim Courier competed in the main draw.[3]
