Finally, in their 10th meeting Ivanisevic  wins a tie-break against Edberg  – the Swede had won their six previous tie-breaks. Even though the Croat was ranked lower and Edberg played at home, Ivanisevic was a favorite to win that contest having won all their three matches played in 1992, including a recent demolition in Sydney. Ivanisevic played his best point at the net at *4:5 in the tie-break, then he saved a set point with a powerful serve (Edberg’s string gone). At 8-all Edberg perhaps served an ace, but the linesman called it out, and on the second serve Edberg sent a conservative ball long. Ivanisevic converted his third match point with a slice serve to Edberg’s backhand.
