1989 French Open – Men's singles

Michael Chang defeated Stefan Edberg in the final, 6–1, 3–6, 4–6, 6–4, 6–2, to win the men's singles tennis title at the 1989 French Open. Chang became (and remains) the youngest-ever major men's singles champion, winning the final at the age of 17 years, 3 months and 20 days and the first player (male or female) of Asian descent to win the major. En route to the title, he defeated the world No. 1 and three-time champion Ivan Lendl, which is remembered as one of the most significant matches in French Open history.
