2014 tennis event results

Marin Čilić defeated Kei Nishikori in the final, 6–3, 6–3, 6–3 to win the men's singles tennis title at the 2014 US Open.[1] It was Čilić's first major title, and he became the second Croatian to win a Grand Slam men's singles title after his coach Goran Ivanišević at the 2001 Wimbledon Championships.[2]

Rafael Nadal was the defending champion, but withdrew before the tournament due to a right wrist injury.[3]

Nishikori became the first Japanese to reach a Grand Slam semifinal since Jiro Sato at the 1933 French Championships, and the first to do so in the Open Era.

The finalists defeated Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in their respective semifinals, guaranteeing a new major champion, the first Grand Slam final with a guaranteed new champion since the 2008 Australian Open and the first Grand Slam final with two first-time finalists since the 2005 French Open. Nishikori and Čilić were also the two lowest-ranked seeds to reach the US Open final since 2002. Between the 2005 Australian Open and 2020 US Open, this was the only Grand Slam final without one of the Big Four.

This was the first US Open appearance for the 2020 champion Dominic Thiem, who lost in the fourth round to Tomáš Berdych.
