    Points won by each set: | 31-19, 32-14 |

    Noah played with injured left ankle, he had 6 game points to win a game at 0:2 in the 2nd set (8 deuces). Edberg opened the final game with 3 straight aces.

    Third title for the 19-year-old Swede who lost just one service game all week:
    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

    It was the first of their three finals within two years. Here are scorelines of them all:
    Memphis ’85: Edberg d. Noah 6-1, 6-0
    Basel ’85: Edberg d. Noah 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 6-1
    Basel ’86: Edberg d. Noah 7-6, 6-2, 6-7, 7-6
