    [1] Edberg’s magical performance at the net. Especially between *2:3 in the 1st, and 3:0 (30-all) in the 2nd set, the Swede was playing amazing tennis in offence: volleys, smashes, dropshots – everything worked his way when he was approaching the net. It was a revenge for a sensational defeat to Bruguera [39] during their previous meeting, also in Paris (Roland Garros ’90). The 19-year-old Spaniard was a shocking semifinalist on carpet, because he had been known as a clay-courter, yet he found his way to win four consecutive matches in deciding sets (Leconte, Gomez, Rosset, Raoux).
