[6] Becker’s perfect service display – he held 20 times, and only at 4:5 in the 3rd set his service game went to ‘deuce’ – even three times, and Leconte had a set point. The birthday-boy, 23-year-old Leconte [9] admitted: “No one has ever served like that against me. Boris is the No. 1 player in the world on grass.” Becker lost two sets during Wimbledon ’86 (the previous one in the third round, also leading two-sets-to-none). A year before they met in the Wimbledon quarterfinal, and then Becker won 7-6(7), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
