    Points won by each set: | 34-27, 31-27, 24-5 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    40 % Wawrinka – 27 of 66
    34 % Anderson – 28 of 82

    Louis Armstrong Stadium, night session. Anderson played his first major quarterfinal having won nine matches in a row & having beaten Wawrinka in their past four meetings. After the 2nd set, the South African took a toilet break but it didn’t help him at all.

      Anderson was also drained after his marathon 4th round battle against Andy Murray, he stated himself. A great match, which took 4:18 h. I was a bit disappointed, because had it gone five sets, they would have had a realistic chance to break the record for the longest US Open match in terms of time. Edberg beat Chang at the US Open semifinal 1992 in 5 hours and 26 minutes, but it was not a very good match quality-wise.

        I’d like to make pic-stats of both matches in the future, especially Edberg-Chang due to the record & the semifinal stage. I’d like to add to the site as many major semifinals as possible.

          That would be great! I have the Edberg-Chang match on video tape. But as I said it was a very strange match with many service breaks and unforced errors. The officials statistics say Edberg had 67 unforced errors. But these numbers are a bit misleading sometimes, because it seemed both players had more errors than the stats suggest.

            Can you upload that match on YouTube? I saw it in 1992 on RTL, it’d be nice to watch it again 23 years later. You know, I don’t bother with “unforced errors” at all, when I make stats I divide shots only on “winners” & “errors”, plus “service winners” it’s something between; from my point of view no need to dwell on whether a serve was tough to return or not, more important for me is how many points the players obtain directly behind the serves thus those percentages below the pictures.

              That will be difficult, because I have this match only on VHS tape and not on dvd. And I do not know how to convert from VHS to DVD…Interesting. I own the CBS broadcast of that match with the commentary by Tony Trabert, Mary Carillo and Pat Summerall. Do you remember the RTL commentator’ s name? It could have been Gerd Szepanski who unfortunately died a few years ago.

                I don’t remember the name, I remember only that in the early 90s Uli Potofski was always a moderator in the RTL studio. I suppose that to convert from VHS to DVD you should simply go your nearest computer service and ask them. I think if you have more matches like Edberg-Chang that aren’t available on YouTube, it’d be great if you converted your VHS’s and created a YT channel. I have also some VHS’s with tennis but haven’t got any full matches.
