I don't know about that. I thought Wilander made his win a lot harder than it could have been. Wilander was well in control at 6-4, 4-1 up, when the umpire called Wilander for a time violation and Wilander's form disappeared until the third set. The fourth set was winnable for Wilander, yet he lost it, and he also went from 2-0 up to 2-3 down in the fifth set, before eventually coming back to lead 5-3 and then win it 6-4 in the fifth set.
It was a great match though, yes.
