Night session on Rod Laver Arena. At the time it was tough to expect it’d be the last match of this type for Mecir  who was just 26-year-old and very consistent player since 1985 (regular finals and goo appearances at majors). Becker  lost the first two sets creating chances to win them both. In the opener Becker led *3:1 (40/30) when lost perhaps the most interesting rally of the match; in the 2nd set led 5:2* (15/0) and 4:0 in the tie-break which he lost 6/8. It’s not easy to be discouraged after two sets of this type, and Becker found himself at 1:3* in the 3rd set when showed (like a few times before and after) his great fighting spirit winning 17 of the last 20 games! Mecir was six points away from victory serving at 4-all (30-all), after leading 4:3 when Becker held at love. The Czechoslovak didn’t show symptoms of tiredness or injury, Becker simply overwhelmed him from the baseline. Becker’s 4th of his 10 two-sets-to-love comebacks.
