    The match lasted 3 hours 54 minutes… Match on YouTube
    Mac was *1:4, 5:6 (0/30) in the 2nd set (also 3:5* in the tie-break) and saved 5 break points in his last three service games of the match. At 4-all in the 4th set, Lendl, having squandered a triple mini-set point, exploded – he called a lineswoman “[…] stupid lady!” – got a point penalty for that. He couldn’t agree with Gerry Armstrong’s decision, refused to play & he was penalized for the delay again – lost the 9th game in the consequence. Lendl had received a game-penalty also a day before during his marathon win over Jakob Hlasek. It was 15th and McEnroe’s ultimate victory over Lendl. The Czech player won their last 6 meetings, preventing Big Mac from entering event a tie-break!
