The entire 1991 year was great for the 26-year-old Forget [5], but he was the hottest player on the tour in the first quarter of the year winning 25 of his first 28 matches (counting 3 Hopman Cup wins – prestigious event at the time). That victory over Edberg [1] was arguably the most valuable in that period because the Swede entered the match having won 17 of his last 18 matches on the American hard-courts being a huge favorite to defend his title. The sets were mirroring, Forget trailed *0:2 and got deciding breaks leading 5:4; in the 2nd set he avoided a double break down twice and finished the contest in amazing style, hitting four return winners (three backhands, one forehand).

Serve & volley: Forget 6/8, Edberg 14/27
