Very disappointing clash of two players approaching their 30s. Seven years before on the same court, Mayotte  almost defeated Lendl  in four sets but since then Lendl improved his backhand while Mayotte slowed down as a serve-and-volleyer. In the consequence Lendl trashed Mayotte in their last four meetings and that night session quarterfinal initiated the streak. The American played well in the opener, but once he lost it he lost his motivation too and 11 games in a row. He had his only break points in Lendl’s last two service games.
