    Points won by each set: | 31-23, 30-21, 58-55, 27-36, 42-35 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    34 % Noah – 63 of 182
    18 % Svensson – 32 of 176

    Noah [6] squandered break points when Svensson [28] was serving in games Nos. 9 & 11 of the 3rd set. In the ensuing tie-break, the Frenchman wasted 5 match points (6:5, 8:7, 9:8, 10:9, 11:10) – Svensson got the tie-break 14/12, and if he had captured the title it would have been the longest tie-break conquered trailing 0-2 in sets to win a match! But he blew five break points at 4-all in the decisive set. Noah earned $60.000 and Svensson got $30.000, the biggest pay-check of his career at the time. Both players received a standing ovation at the end from the crowd of 8.000.

    Noah’s route to his 19th title:
    1 Jonathan Canter 6-4, 6-4
    2 Mike de Palmer 6-2, 7-6
    Q Johan Kriek 7-6(8), 6-4
    S Kevin Curren 7-5, 6-3
    W Jonas Svensson 6-2, 6-3, 6-7(12), 4-6, 7-5
