Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer in the final, 6–4, 5–7, 6–4, 6–4 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2015 US Open. [1] By reaching the final, Djokovic became the third man to reach all four Grand Slam finals in the same year in the Open Era after Rod Laver and Federer. Earlier that year, he won the Australian Open and Wimbledon and lost to Stan Wawrinka at Roland Garros. [2] Marin Čilić was the defending champion, but was defeated by Djokovic in the semifinals. The final was a rematch of the final at the 2015 Western & Southern Open, which Federer won 7-6(2), 6-3. [3]

This was the first time since the 2010 US Open that Andy Murray was beaten before the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam tournament, losing to Kevin Anderson in the fourth round. This ended a streak of 18 consecutive Grand Slam quarter-finals (he missed the 2013 French Open due to injury). [4]

This was also the last Grand Slam tournament for former World No. 7 Mardy Fish, former Top 15 player Jarkko Nieminen and last US Open appearance for 2001 champion and former World No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt and former World No. 2 Tommy Haas.

The win was also Federer's first title on the ATP tour in over 12 months; his last win was at Basel on 1 November 2015. This was also the first Grand Slam tournament since the 2002 US Open in which Federer was ranked outside the top-10. He went on to reach and win the final of the tournament, making him the oldest man to reach a Grand Slam final since Ken Rosewall made the 1974 US Open final at the age of 39, and the oldest Slam champion since Ken Rosewall had won the 1972 Australian Open at 37 years and 63 days old. Nadal was attempting to become the first male player in the Open Era and the third man ever to achieve a double career Grand Slam.

Roger Federer won the title, winning a record eighth Wimbledon Gentlemen's Singles tennis title and 19th Grand Slam men's singles title, defeating Marin Čilić in the final, 6–3, 6–1, 6–4. With the win, Federer surpassed Pete Sampras and William Renshaw, who had each won it seven times. Federer also became only the second man in the Open era, after Björn Borg in 1976, to win Wimbledon without losing a set. This was Federer's 70th appearance at a Grand Slam, tying the record for male players and a record-breaking 11th men's singles final at the same Grand Slam tournament. In addition, by virtue of his third-round win over Mischa Zverev, Federer won his 317th Grand Slam singles match, surpassing Serena Williams' record of 316 match wins and giving him the all-time record for the most Grand Slam singles match wins by any player, male or female. Also, with his first-round win, Federer surpassed Jimmy Connors' record for most match wins at Wimbledon. In the same match, he hit his 10000th ace, becoming only the third man to do so. The tournament marked the fifth time that Nadal and Federer won the French Open and Wimbledon respectively in the same year.

Rafael Nadal won his 16th Major title and 3rd US Open title, by defeating Kevin Anderson, 6–3, 6–3, 6–4 to capture the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2017 US Open. Nadal retained the ATP No. 1 singles ranking after Roger Federer lost in the quarterfinals. It was also Nadal's first hard court title since January 2014.

Roger Federer successfully defended his title, defeating Marin Čilić in the final, 6–2, 6–7(5–7), 6–3, 3–6, 6–1 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2018 Australian Open. It was Federer's 20th Grand Slam singles title and, at the time, record-equalling sixth Australian Open men's singles title.

Rafael Nadal won his 19th Grand Slam title and 4th US Open title, by defeating Daniil Medvedev, 7–5, 6–3, 5–7, 4–6, 6–4 to capture the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2019 US Open. Nadal's victory meant that every Grand Slam title since the beginning of 2017 had been won by either Rafael Nadal (5), Novak Djokovic (4) or Roger Federer (3). This was the first time since 2006–08 that Nadal, Djokovic and Federer had claimed all Grand Slam titles for 3 consecutive years.
