    Points won by each set: | 31-22, 32-21, 27-35, 34-37, 51-45 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    30 % Edberg – 46 of 150
    24 % Lendl – 45 of 185

    Edberg led *4:2 (30/0) in the 4th set, then squandered four match points at 5:4* and the match was suspended at 2:1* for him in the decider due to rain. After the resumption the next day, Lendl wasted three game points to lead 5:3, at 4-all Edberg fought off a mini-match point with a service winner. There was 3-all in the decisive tie-break when the Swede took the final four points… The match lasted 4 hours 3 minutes. Lendl spent nine hours (!) on the court within two rounds following his marathon vs Becker.

    It was 27th and the last meeting between them (Edberg edges 14-13); they played five 5-setters against each other, the Swede won 3 of them…
