Points won by each set: | 30-23, 38-33, 34-21 |
Points won directly behind the serve:
32 % Noah – 27 of 83
6 % Pernfors – 6 of 96

That match actually marked an end of Pernfors’ [63] appearance in the broad tennis elite. The 26-year-old (at the time) Swede suffered a series of injuries afterwards and dropped outside the Top 200 for over two years to magnificently come back to the ATP tour triumphing in Montreal ’93. Meanwhile, for the 3-year older Noah [13] – a member of a narrower elite of the entire 80s – reaching a major semifinal it was the last great result.
