    Points won by each set: | 22-33, 48-43, 25-14, 24-27, 52-44 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    46 % Becker – 69 of 150
    29 % Nystrom – 53 of 182

    One of the most important matches in [20] Becker’s career. The four years older Nystrom [8] led *5:4 (30-all) in the 5th set, not losing his serve from the end of the 3rd set. Then he decided to attack the net behind his second serve (which was his unusual tactics) and netted his backhand volley. At 6:5 he was serving again to win the match, but that time lost his serve to 15 and the match a few games later after 3 hours 20 minutes.
