    In the 2-hour 45-minute final, Lendl squandered a 4:1* (30/15) lead in the 3rd set. Cash also defeated Lendl in the Aussie Open ’87 semifinal (in four sets). In the last three matches at Wimbledon ’87, Cash defeated three possible highest ranked opponents he could beat, 3, 7 & 1 respectively. Schapers – the only man who took a set away from him – was ranked 64 at the time.

    Cash’s route to his lone Grand Slam title:
    1 Marcel Freeman 6-0, 6-3, 6-2
    2 Paul McNamee 7-5, 6-4, 6-2
    3 Michiel Schapers 7-6(4), 6-2, 2-6, 6-4
    4 Guy Forget 6-2, 6-3, 6-4
