Boris Becker defeated the defending champion Stefan Edberg in the final, 6–0, 7–6(7–1), 6–4 to win the Gentlemen's Singles tennis title at the 1989 Wimbledon Championships.[1]

The semi-final match between Ivan Lendl and eventual champion Becker became at the time the longest ever Wimbledon semi-final at four hours and one minute long, it would not be until the 2013 championships that this record would be broken, when the semi-final match between Novak Djokovic and Juan Martín del Potro would last four hours and forty-three minutes.

John McEnroe reached the semi-finals, his best showing in a Grand Slam tournament since the 1985 US Open final. The tournament also featured the first appearances of future champions Pete Sampras and Michael Stich in the main draw. Mats Wilander was about to complete the career Grand Slam in his career and losing to McEnroe in the quarterfinals.
