The fourth and last five-setter between them (2-2), the longest one – it lasted over five hours (concluded after midnight); the first time so long in the US Open history. The first two sets didn’t indicate that it’d be the record breaking encounter.  Becker’s low percentage of 1st serves certainly contributed to the duration (at one junction he missed eleven straight first serves). He held at 1-all in the 3rd set despite three double faults and came back from 2:4 in the tie-break with the net-cord help (both tie-breaks he won 7/4). Lendl  got the decisive breaks at 2:1 in 4th and 3-all in 5th sets, withstanding break points in his two opening service games of the decider. Becker had a game point to lead 4:3, but missed an overhead from quite difficult position. Lendl’s 36th and last five-setter won, at the time no other Open Era player had collected at least 30.
