One of Lendl’s  brilliant matches at times when he was almost invincible indoors. His 30-year-old opponent Sandy Mayer  had a bad day in the office though; despite playing the whole encounter with a serve-and-volley tactic, he was unable to produce a volley winner on his own serve. Lendl’s sixth straight win over Mayer. It was the only Lendl’s peace of cake during the tournament, other four matches were tough for him.
Lendl’s route to his 35th title:
1 Vincent Van Patten 4-6, 7-5, 6-3
2 Tim Mayotte 6-2, 7-6(8)
Q Sandy Mayer 6-1, 6-1
S Chip Hooper 6-7(5), 7-5, 6-2
W Kevin Curren 5-7, 6-3, 7-6(4)
