    It was the best period in Gilbert’s career… The 28-year-old American beat Stefan Edberg in the final (6-4 2-6 7-6), extending his winning streak to 17 matches (captured titles in Stratton Mountain, Livingston & Cincinnati); between July & October ’89, Gilbert won 35 out of 39 matches (played 8 tournaments & 2 rubbers in a tie vs. West Germany)! Becker after the loss to Gilbert, went to New York and claimed his only US Open title.
