Edberg’s first match when he was no. 1 in the world (unofficially, after his quarterfinal win over Chang). Quite interesting that they both were Grand Slam champions at the time: in 1990 Gomez won Paris while Edberg won London. The Ecuadorian  couldn’t deal with Edberg’s high-kick serves at all, never got ‘deuce’ as a receiver in ten games. Gomez used lob-returns three times, something very rarely seen even once in a match.
