Two-time defending champion Roger Federer defeated Andy Roddick in the final, 6-2, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2006 US Open.

Federer became the sixth man after Jack Crawford, Don Budge, Frank Sedgman, Lew Hoad and Rod Laver, to reach all four Grand Slam finals in one calendar year; he was the second man to appear in all four finals in the Open Era, and the first to do so since Laver in 1969. Earlier that year, Federer won titles at the Australian Open and at Wimbledon and lost to Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros. Also, he reached a record-equalling 10th consecutive Grand Slam semifinal appearance (streak started at the 2004 Wimbledon Championships), after Rod Laver and Ivan Lendl.

This tournament was Andre Agassi's last professional appearance. He played his last match against Benjamin Becker and retired after the US Open. Future champion Juan Martín del Potro made his first appearance in the main draw of the US Open. This was also the first Grand Slam tournament in which future World No. 1s Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray were seeded. They were seeded 20th and 17th, respectively.
