on youtube, i was looking at a while back at wimby 88 final (i think not 89 or 90)..they were walking on to centre court and boris sat down first in edbergs chair steffan defo didnt like it but didnt say anything, but i think knowing becker that it was a deliberate move..sadly for me and him it didnt help as becker lost the final.
I can confirm that it was 1988. It was the other way round, wasn't it? There were many rain delays, most of the match being played on the third Monday. On one of the walks back onto court, Edberg was eager to get to the chair, and forgot to bow to the Royal box (which was a "tradition" at Wimbledon up to 2002 for all matches on centre court), so Becker called Edberg back. After they bowed to the Royal box, Edberg got the wrong chair as well. Edberg won the match, though, by 4-6, 7-6, 6-4, 6-2.
