    Points won by each set: | 22-28, 16-28, 36-32, 41-34, 42-31 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    18 % Lendl – 29 of 155
    23 % McEnroe – 37 of 157

    The final lasted 4 hours 8 minutes. McEnroe’s outburst (which cost him loss of concentration) occurred when he led 30/15 on Lendl’s serve at 1-all in the 3rd set. Prior to the final Lendl had lost six matches in succession to McEnroe; counting that FO final, the Czechoslovak couldn’t win 5 games in a set as far as 8 consecutive sets are concerned. ‘Big Mac’ was:
    – 6 points away from triumph in the 3rd set
    – 5 points away in the 4th set
    – 8 points away in the 5th set

    Lendl’s route to the final:
    1 Matt Mitchell 6-3, 6-2, 6-0
    2 Mario Martinez 6-1, 6-0, 6-1
    3 Paul McNamee 6-1, 7-5, 6-4
    4 Anders Jarryd 6-4, 6-0, 6-4
    Q Andres Gomez 6-3, 6-7(8), 6-4, 6-3
    S Mats Wilander 6-3, 6-3, 7-5
    W John McEnroe 3-6, 2-6, 6-4, 7-5, 7-5
