What caused the fall of Troy?

If I had to sum it up to a single cause, I would say it was the death of Hector at the hands of Achilles. Hector was the greatest warrior in the world, next to Achilles, and had Hector not killed Patroclus, Achilles would not have killed him. Up to that point, the Trojans were actually close to driving the Greeks away.

Why did Hector fight with Achilles?

To put it in the simplest terms, they were simply two warriors in opposing armies who met up and did what came naturally to them as warriors: they fought. However, Achilles had a grudge against Hector, since the latter killed the former's cousin, Patroclus.

The fight was short, and after Achilles defeated Hector by breaking his neck, proceeded to drag his corpse around the battlefield before letting the Trojans reclaim his body.

Interestingly, Achilles was killed a short time later by Paris (Hector's brother), who shot him in the ankle with an arrow (thus giving the Achilles tendon its name).
