    Points won by each set: | 31-19, 32-14 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    34 % Edberg – 14 of 41
    9 % Noah – 5 of 55

    Shocking scoreline (!) but Noah [14] played the entire 54-minute final with injured left ankle, he had six chances to win a game at 0:2 in the 2nd set (eight deuces). Edberg [19] opened the last game with three straight aces. The 19-year-old Swede lost just one service game all week. “I don’t think I ever played so well,” said Edberg.

    Edberg’s route to his 3rd title:
    2 John Lloyd 7-5, 6-3
    3 Marty Davis 7-6(4), 6-0
    Q Brad Gilbert 6-4, 6-2
    S Jimmy Connors 6-1, 6-4
    W Yannick Noah 6-1, 6-0

    # Main-level finals with only one game won by the runner-up (also ‘best of five’ finals with similar scorelines initially):

    one point separated Djokovic from defeating Berdych 6-0, 6-0 in the Beijing ’14 final
