Here are stats I took on the Edberg-Becker semi(missing the 2nd game of the 3rd set, an Edberg service game in which he held)

Edberg d Becker 6-3, 6-4, 5-7, 3-6, 6-2

Edberg
110-151 (73%)
72-110 (65% 1st pts won)
19-41 (46% 2nd serve pts won)
3 aces, 5 df's
drew 30 return errors(7 on 2nd serve)

Becker
96-172 (56%)
63-96 (66% 1st serve pts won)
34-76 (48% 2nd serve pts won)
10 aces, 3 df's
drew 23 return errors(5 on 2nd serve)

Edberg was 8-22 on break points(Becker made 1st serves on 11 of them)
Becker was 6-17(Edberg made 1st serves on 10 of them)

The 3rd set was the only set without multiple breaks

Non service winners
Edberg: 59 - 4 fh, 14 bh, 19 fhv, 13 bhv, 9 ov
Becker: 46 - 11 fh, 13 bh, 10 fhv, 8 bhv, 4 ov

Winners by set
Edberg - 13, 13, 10, 11, 12
Becker - 6, 12, 9, 11, 8

net pts
Becker 43-70(61%)
Edberg 95-147(65%)

some stats from Espn
unforced errors by set
Edberg - 5, 11, 13, 16
Becker - 7, 9, 10, 5

Becker broke for a 1-0 lead in the 5th and had a 40-15 lead for 2-0. He made 3 straight unforced errors at that point and was eventually broken after two deuces. Made only 2 first serves out of 10 points.

This match was very different from any of their Wimbledon matches & a lot more fun to watch, many more returns were put in play than in those matches(Edberg didn't miss a return in the 2nd set, Becker didn't miss a return in the 5th)

Here were stats espn had on the players through their 1st five matches
Edberg
10 aces
70%
64% 1st serve pts won
61% 2nd serve pts won
held serve in 61 of 73 games

Becker
41 aces
55%
76% 1st serve pts won
63% 2nd serve pts won
held serve in 71 of 82 games
