One of the tightest 4-setters in Chang’s [19] long career. He was in a position (closer or farther) to lose all three sets he won: *3:4 (deuce) in the 1st set, *1:4 (deuce) in the 3rd (played his first volley winner then) and a set point down on return in the 4th set tie-break which he won 8/6. They were teasing each other at the end of the 4th set. At 4-all Chang forced Agenor’s double fault on break point standing just behind the service line. Agenor did the same to break back in the following game, he repeated it also once in the tie-break… The Haitian [30], just like Chang, played his first major quarterfinal (and the last one), but he had solid experience on Centre Court, losing to the best players of the 80s: McEnroe (1985) & Lendl (1987); in 1988 he ousted Gomez on Centre Court. Agenor will return to the main Parisian arena in 1991 to lose a five-setter to Connors.

Serve & volley: Chang 0, Agenor 1/2
