Vilas beated Wilander easily in Madrid 82. A few weeks later, he played against him in FO final, leaded 6/1 ans set point on tie-break of the second set. He lost the second set, the match, and lost 6 or 7 times consecutively against Wilander without winning a set. He was very unlucky in this FO final : if he won the second set, he would have won the match.
