# Four sets with 7 games in front, it’s a rarity in five-setters; majority of players never play even once such a match in their careers; Edberg experienced as many as three matches with scorelines of this type, lost two of them. When he entered the court no. 1 against the fellow Swede, he had a 3-0 record against him, was considerably ranked higher [3 vs 37], so his rather comfortable victory could be expected, especially that the 26-year-old Holm had just won four clay-court matches at the main-level before. Edberg led *4:3 (40/15) in the opener, when Holm played three consecutive lob winners (!) and since that moment to the end, it was a dog-fight. Holm took the first tie-break 7/1 (led in that set all the time), another two tie-breaks collected Edberg (7/2, 10/8) – the second of them on his fifth set point after trailing *5:6 (0/30) before. Holm began the decider with three winners & broke Edberg at ‘love’ after his 18th & last double fault. The underdog held five times, withstanding three break points in two different games, including 15/40 in the last game of that 4-hour epic encounter.
