    Points won by each set: | 28-36, 33-27, 46-43 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    22 % Edberg – 25 of 112
    36 % Noah – 37 of 101

    Quite surprisingly Noah never defeated Edberg in their six meetings, he was the closest in New York ’86 during their round robin match. In the 3rd set the Frenchman had a match point on Edberg’s second serve at 6:5, but the Swede responded to it getting three points in a row with volley winners. In the ensuing tie-break he built a 5:2* advantage to win it 7/4. Because of the loss, Noah was already eliminated before his third group match. He’s one of the best Open Era players to never play a Masters semifinal (4 appearances).
