2008 US Open – Men's Singles

Men's Singles
2008 US Open
Champion Roger Federer
Runner-up Andy Murray
Final score 6–2, 7–5, 6–2

Roger Federer was the four-time defending champion. He won a 5th consecutive US Open title after winning the final 6–2, 7–5, 6–2 against Andy Murray of Great Britain who was contesting his first major final. It was Federer's 13th major title and his only successful title defence in majors that year, after losing the Australian Open and Wimbledon titles.[1]

Rafael Nadal had a chance to win Grand Slams on clay, grass and hard court in the same calendar year, after having won on this year's French Open and as well as Wimbledon and could become the first man since Rod Laver did in 1969, but he lost to Murray in the semifinals. Future champion Marin Cilic appeared in the main draw of the US Open for the first time.
