Ivan Lendl was the defending champion,[1] and successfully defended his title after Stefan Edberg was forced to retire during the third set of the final because of a torn stomach muscle. The Swede's retirement marked the first time since the 1911 Wimbledon Championships that a male player withdrew during the singles' title match of a Grand Slam tournament.[2]

Former world number 1 John McEnroe created controversy after he was disqualified from his fourth round match for unsportsmanlike conduct. He received a warning for intimidating a linesperson, a point penalty after smashing his racket, and was defaulted for arguing with and abusing the umpire, supervisor and tournament referee.
