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 tennis 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] Wilander gained the number 1 ranking for the first time, replacing Lendl.

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