Also I believe he should have won the 1989 French Open against Chang when he was two points away from serving for the match in the 4th set, and let it slip away.

With those two wins, he would have had the career grand slam plus a total of 8 singles slam titles, forever putting to rest the "who is better - Wilander, Becker, Edberg" debate. I happen to already place Edberg as the best of those three, but most rate Becker or Wilander (or both) above him.
Good point Susan.He should have defeated Lendl and won his third Aussie Open.But, with seven slams and a Masters ( which Wilander never won) heŽd be ranked along Boris Becker...so the debate contiunes.Becker was the best of the three.
