Michael Chang was the defending champion, but he was defeated in the quarterfinals by nineteen-year-old Andre Agassi.

Agassi went on to his first Grand Slam final, where he was defeated by Andrés Gómez, who was also playing in his first Grand Slam final, despite being the favourite. In Agassi's opinion, as he states in his 2009 autobiography, his defeat in this final was partly due to issues with the wig he was wearing at the time.[1]

Gómez became the first Ecuadorian, male or female, to win a Grand Slam. This was his only Grand Slam title in singles.
