    Match on YouTube (FRA / GER commentary)… Arias led *3:1 (40/30) in the 3rd set

    There’s somewhat resemblance to the 1989 French Open quarterfinal in which Stefan Edberg beat Alberto Mancini in straight sets on the same court (serve-and-volley specialists vs baseliners, who enjoyed the best times of their careers turning 20 years of age).

    Arias was a tennis prodigy, however, after the French Open ’84 he didn’t reach another major quarterfinal and didn’t win another title (had won five at the time). The American until the end of 1984 (being already a pro for five years) won almost as many matches as in the next ten years of his career…
