This 1983 US Open Tennis Championship quarterfinals match 3rd Set between the 17 year old Swede, Mats Wilander verses the rising Czech star Ivan Lendl….was a good match that had Lendl not won the tie-breaker in set three….the young Wilander with his young legs just might have changed the outcome of this match….and you can see that in Lendl’s demeanor with the towel over his head at the end of the match. Lendl would go on to beat USA Jimmy Arias 6-2, 7-6, 6-1 in the semifinals….which would put him in the finals against USA Jimmy Connors…..who would beat the Czech in four, 6-3, 6-7, 7-5, 6-0.
Any way you cut the pie…..this was a great 3rd Set between Wilander and Lendl….which is well worth the watch by any and all tennis fans. ENJOY!!!
