The match lasted 2 hours 40 minutes. A period in history of men’s tennis when McEnroe was almost invincible for one and a half years, so the scoreline must have been a bit shocking. The Swede saved break points in four consecutive games of the 2nd set (eight in total) and trailed *1:5 in the 3rd set (saved two set points at *3:5). In the last game of the match McEnroe had had four game points before succumbed on Wilander’s second match point.
