Shockingly one-sided match two years after their semifinal on the same court which Wilander won in five sets. The 1990 year belonged to Edberg [3], and in that match he had shown what he repeated a couple of times that season – a perfect serve-and-volley display. His 1st serve above 70%, allowed him to do whatever he wanted at the net. Wilander [15], the former number one in the world, who was only 26 at the time, following the humiliating defeat never even played a Grand Slam quarterfinal until he finished his career in 1996.
