Points won directly behind the serve:
33 % Corretja – 31 of 92
13 % Dewulf – 13 of 93

It was cloudy, windy day, and Dewulf [39] couldn’t deal with Corretja’s [14] serve. Nonetheless the Belgian broke at the beginning of the match, led 3:1* (30/15), then 5:3, and squandered a set point serving in the 10th game as his forehand went long. Dewulf never played another match at Roland Garros… A year before they met on the same Philippe Chartrier court in the fourth round, and Dewulf [122] stunned Corretja [7] in four sets – the Spaniard was considered as one of the favourites to the French Open title for the first time in his career then.
