Ivan Lendl was the defending champion,[1] and retained his title defeating Stefan Edberg 4–6, 7–6(7–3), 5–2 in the final – leading in the third set when Edberg was forced to retire because of a torn stomach muscle injury. 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, receiving a warning for intimidating a linesperson, a point penalty after smashing his racket, and ultimately being defaulted for swearing at the umpire, supervisor and tournament referee.
