Their second major semifinal within 1.5 years (French Open ’91) and the American wins again. Stich [17] actually played a very good match until he led 4:3* in the 2nd set, before it happened he had saved a triple set point with volleys serving at 5:6, but lost the tie-break 4/7; he had break points in two different games of the 3rd set… Courier snapped Stich’s 9-match winning streak (initiated at the Grand Slam Cup in December ’92)… The American [1] was in a form of his life during the tournament, he almost won the event not dropping a set.
