Lendl has a +15 differential here which is impressive considering that it's not easy to get a positive differential on clay.

(For example Kuerten had a negative differential in the 2000 RG final; and in the 2001 final he just broke even with a differential of zero.)

Doubly impressive is that the incredibly long rallies in the first two sets -- especially the opening set -- did not end in Lendl making more unforced errors.
