    Points won directly behind the serve:
    28 % Edberg – 19 of 66
    12 % Courier – 11 of 87

    The match lasted 2 hours 4 minutes, almost an hour longer than the French Open ’70 final in which the scoreline was the same… Edberg notched all overhead winners in the 2nd set, he won a game for a 5:3 lead with three overheads & a service winner.

    Edberg’s route to his 5th major title:
    1 Brian Shelton 6-4, 2-6, 7-6(4), 6-1
    2 Jeff Tarango 6-3, 7-5, 6-0
    3 Jim Grabb 7-6(8), 4-6, 6-3, 6-4
    4 Michael Chang 7-6(2), 7-5, 6-3
    Q Javier Sanchez 6-3, 6-2, 6-3
    S Ivan Lendl 6-3, 6-3, 6-4
    W Jim Courier 6-2, 6-4, 6-0

      One reason why this match took some time for this small number of games are the longer (TV commercial)-breaks at changeovers at the US Open, also in 1991 already…
