The first of three consecutive Wimbledon finals between them… The match was suspended at 3:2* for Edberg [3] in the 1st set due to rain and resumed on Monday (interrupted by rain again at the end of the 1st set). In the opener Edberg had a break point leading 3:0; Becker [8] held after five deuces – the longest game of the final, which lasted 2 hours 50 minutes. The Swede saved a break point at 3-all in the 2nd set and from that moment to the end he had no problems to hold 11 times in a row.
