    Points won by each set: | 37-38, 37-40, 34-34, 30-18 |

    The longest match (3:22 hrs) between the two greatest serve-and-volley maestros of the Open Era, utterly dominated by the serve. This extremely tight contest, Edberg lost due to lapse of concentration in the mid 4th set when he led 3:2* to lose 13 points in a row.

    In their H2H, McEnroe was better: 7-6, however, Edberg edges in the doubles H2H (3-2):
    Philadelphia 1984: Fleming / McEnroe d. Edberg / Simonsson 6-0, 6-1
    US Open 1984: Edberg / Jarryd d. Fleming / McEnroe 3-6, 7-6(8), 7-5, 7-6(2)
    Davis Cup 1984: Edberg / Jarryd d. Fleming / McEnroe 7-5, 5-7, 6-2, 7-5
    Los Angeles 1986: Edberg / Jarryd d. Fleming / McEnroe 3-6, 7-5, 7-6(7)
    Davis Cup 1992: McEnroe / Sampras d. Edberg / Jarryd 6-1, 6-7(2), 4-6, 6-3, 6-3
