Rafael Nadal was the defending champion, but retired in his semifinal match against del Potro. Nadal and Roger Federer were in contention for the ATP no. 1 singles ranking at the start of the tournament. Nadal retained the number 1 ranking after Federer lost in the fourth round.

This tournament marked former world no. 3 David Ferrer's last participation in a Grand Slam tournament; he retired from his first round match against Nadal due to injury. This was also the last Grand Slam tournament for Julien Benneteau, Gilles Müller, Florian Mayer and former world no. 8 and two-time US Open semifinalist Mikhail Youzhny.[3][4][5][6][7] This was also the first Grand Slam tournament since Wimbledon 2017 in which former world no. 1 Andy Murray participated where he was granted a protected ranking at the start of the tournament. He lost in the second round to Fernando Verdasco.

Peter Polansky became the first player in history to qualify as a lucky loser for the main draw of all four Grand Slams in the same calendar year.[8]
