Points won by each set: [ 32-25, 37-26, 31-19 ]
Points won directly behind the serve:
46 % Tanner – 39 of 84
24 % Vilas – 21 of 86

The biggest success in Tanner’s career. He was very well concentrated throughout the match, and even though people considered him as the fastest server at the time, no-one expected he’d defeat Vilas [6] so easily; the Argentinian – known as a clay-court specialist – had won Masters ’74 on grass and led 2:1 in their Head-to-Head. The same score in every set, but the 3rd one was the easiest for Tanner [11] – no problems on serve whatsoever.
