Their sixth and last match, Edberg finished that rivalry with a 6-0 H2H. On paper it was a quite balanced match-up: Noah  – better serve, Edberg  – better backhand… at the net and with their baseline forehands, they seemed to be at the same level. Yet, somehow Edberg was winning crucial tie-breakers when they met (he was a better tie-break player in general, but not so distinctively to own Noah)… it wasn’t the case in Dallas. Apart from losing the serve at 4-all in the 2nd set, Edberg was easily holding throughout, it gave him the privilege to play freely as a receiver & he was putting his opponent in a constant pressure.
