Rafael Nadal was the defending champion, but retired in his semifinal match against Juan Martín del Potro.

Novak Djokovic won the title, his third at the US Open and 14th Grand Slam title overall, tying Pete Sampras, defeating Juan Martín del Potro in the final, 6–3, 7–6(7–4), 6–3.[1][2]

Nadal and Roger Federer were in contention for the ATP no. 1 singles ranking at the start of the tournament. Nadal retained the number 1 ranking after Federer lost in the fourth round.

This tournament marks former world no. 3 David Ferrer's last participation in a Grand Slam tournament; he retired from his first round match against Nadal due to injury. This was also the last Grand Slam tournament for Julien Benneteau, Nicolas Mahut, Gilles Müller, Florian Mayer and former world no. 8 and two-time US Open semifinalist Mikhail Youzhny.[3][4][5][6][7]

Peter Polansky became the first player in history to qualify as a lucky loser for the main draw of all four Grand Slams in the same calendar year.[8]
