It was the longest singles final in Wimbledon history. Djokovic became the first man since Bob Falkenburg at the 1948 Wimbledon Championships to win the title after being championship points down, having saved two when down 7–8 in the fifth set. This is also the first time since the 2004 French Open that a man has saved championship points in order to win a Grand Slam title and the first time that any singles player, male or female, has saved a championship point to win a Grand Slam title since the 2009 Wimbledon Championships. Djokovic became the second man and third singles player overall to win multiple Grand Slam titles after saving match point during the tournament, after Rod Laver and Serena Williams.

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.

Dominic Thiem won his first major title, defeating Alexander Zverev in the final, 2–6, 4–6, 6–4, 6–3, 7–6(8–6) to capture the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2020 US Open. He became the first player in the Open Era to win from two sets down in a US Open final, the first male player to win from two sets down at the US Open since Pancho Gonzales came back to defeat Ted Schroeder in 1949 and the first at any major event since Gastón Gaudio defeated Guillermo Coria in the 2004 French Open final. Both players served for the championship in the final set, but both were broken at 30.

Three-time defending champion Rafael Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic in the final, 6–0, 6–2, 7–5 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2020 French Open. For the fourth time in his career, Nadal did not drop a set throughout the entire tournament and for the first time in French Open history, neither the men's nor women's singles champions lost a set. Nadal equalled Roger Federer's all-time record of 20 Grand Slam singles titles and extended his own record to 13 titles at the same major tournament. Nadal also became the first player, male or female, to win 100 matches at the French Open and only the second male player, after Federer at the Australian Open and Wimbledon, to win 100 matches at a single Grand Slam tournament. Djokovic was attempting to become the first man in the Open Era to win each major title at least twice.

Novak Djokovic is the two-time defending champion.
