Interesting - I wasn't aware of this event and Jonas Svensson was one of my favorite players back then. I attended the US Open in 1987 and saw his matches the first week. He played a couple of 5-setters, one of which was very exciting on an outer court where he came from behind to force the 5th set, which he then won in a tiebreaker. It was standing room only by the end - I also remember sitting right in front of a few of the other lesser-known Swedish players who were there in support (Christian Bergstrom comes to mind, plus a few of the other unseeded Swedes).

I'm sure this warm-up event was good for his confidence going into the Open.

Interesting there was an Ede tournament in 1991.

On P2 I posted Lendl's 2 victories there: http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...7&postcount=16
Great to see that Edberg's final was on a clay tournament though I know he could play pretty well on that surface.

The tournament seemed to be much longer back then. More rounds?


CSM, check out the OP, I posted a link towards the wiki page of the Jericho exo, which happens to be the New Haven ATP tournament at the present time and a NY Times article that introduced the 1987 edition won by Svensson.

Echoes, thanks for the NYTimes article link. It really was a high level field and kudos for Svensson for coming out on top - although as an exo and with the top names getting guarantee money, it's difficult to know how hard they were trying to win. But Jonas played a lot of tiebreakers that week, which probably was good practice for his run at the USO (he eventually lost to Edberg in the R16).

Also of interest to me is that Connors and Leconte played each other (with Connors retiring), because a week later I saw them play each other on the Stadium Court at the USO on the middle Sunday (it was either the R16 or Quarters) - Connors winning in 4 closely contested sets. And seeing Cash lose a tight match to Svensson reminds me that I watched Cash lose in the first round of the USO a week later to Peter Lundgren, also on the Stadium Court, in a night match that ended after midnight. Cash was coming in as the Wimbledon champion, so it was quite an upset at the time.

I read that Lendl led 2:0 in the final tie-break against Pate but when the American took an advantage in the tie-break, Lendl broke his racquet, so I suppose it was rather a serious tournament

Talking Re: The Invitational Event Thread

This is really some unique invitational tournament!

Only long tie-breaks were played but in the formula of "sudden death 9-point tie-breaks": a player began with two serves and every exchange of serves was followed after two serves.

West Palm Beach, 1987
27-29 November ($1,000,000)

Code:
1st Day
Cash d. Edberg          15-11
Lendl d. J.McEnroe      24-22
J.McEnroe d. Edberg     17-15
Cash d. Lendl           15-11
Cash d. J.McEnroe       15-10
Lendl d. Edberg         15-7

2nd Day
J.McEnroe d. Cash       15-12
Edberg d. Lendl         15-4 
Lendl d. Cash           15-11
Edberg d. J.McEnroe     18-16
Edberg d. Cash          18-16
Lendl d. J.McEnroe      15-13

After two days:
1) Lendl    4-2
2) Cash     3-3   (84-80)
3) Edberg   3-3   (84-83)
4) McEnroe  2-4

F:
Lendl d. Cash           11-21, 21-18, 21-7, 22-20
Cash advanced to the final instead of Edberg because of better ratio, but the system of counting money was so weird that the money checks got Lendl, Edberg and McEnroe, Cash left the event cashless

No SF in the Las Vegas event? The other editions of the AT&T/Lite Challenge tournament did have ones, though.


Edinburgh Scottish Grass Court Championship (Jun. 13-18 1989)

Code:
1R 	
Connors def I. Allan	6/0 6/2
McEnroe def Matheson 	6/3 6/1
Gerulaitis def Felgate*	6/7 7/6 6/4
???
		
QF 	
Connors def Gerulaitis	6/2 7/5
Krickstein def Gilbert** 	7/5 2/4 Ret
McEnroe def De La Peña 	6/3 6/3
Lundgren def Hlasek ***	7/5 6/2

SF 	
Connors def Lundgren	6/1 6/1
McEnroe def Krickstein 	6/4 6/4

F 	
McEnroe def Connors	7/6(2) 7/6(4)
*Gerulaitis retired from GP in 1986. 2 weeks before that event, he came back to play doubles at Roland Garros with Connors.
** Gilbert had a stomach muscle injury.
*** That was a remake of the 1988 final. Nytimes.com says *7/5 7/2.

I found no evidence that there was a 2nd round before the QF but it's possible too.


I also found the results of the SF's and final of the 1988 edition:

Code:
SF 	
Hlasek def Norval 	6/2 7/5
Lundgren def Kruger	7/6 6/3

F 	
Lundgren def Hlasek 	6/3 7/5
The final was played on Jun. 12, I think.

(nytimes.com, latimes.com and orlandosentinel.com)

I think the final of the 1982 edition was famous and controversial because that's the one in which Connors crossed over the net all the way to Mac's baseline and set a dispute (pointing the finger at him).


It's interesting because I had the info that Borg was down 0-3 against Connors in 1983. So that makes it 1-3 (and perhaps other encounters are still missing).
Amazing that once he decided to retire, Bjorn lost his mental edge over Connors. Having beaten him 11 times in a row on tour, Bjorn lost virtually all his exos against Connors in '82 and '83. His two wins were a 5 setter in Ottowa in Sept '82 (1-6 6-3 6-3 2-6 6-2) and the RR win in Chicago in Jan '83...

Default Re: The Invitational Event Thread

I think there were already premonitary signs in 1981 (see the Wimbledon SF). The 11 win streak could have been bigger without the thumb injury in the USO final 1978.

To answer your question on the other thread, yeah I saw Lendl live on TV in the early 90's, though I was really young. He was no longer in his prime but still feared and respected, I think. I have vague memories of match against Brett Steven, that I discussed with my grandma. The Kiwi played quite well, I think, but I can no longer say where it was.

Lendl is still remembered in my country for his 5 wins in the Antwerp ECC, one of the greatest tourneys we've ever had. I remember my grand-father told me he was the only player to get the most valuable diamond racket for 3 wins in 5 years. I wasn't a fan but no I respect him for the innovations he put into the game and his unbelievable competitiveness.


By the way, additional scorelines that you will probably appreciate:

Wentworth 24 june 1989
F: Curren def. Wilander 6/2 6/4 (64 minutes)

Scorelines from the RR:

Svensson def. Lendl 7/6 6/4 (Lendl just on Queen's the week before, his 1st grass court title at age 29)
Wilander def. Hlasek 7/6 6/3

Curren advanced to the final at the expense of Svensson because of a better win/loss record in sets.

Mayotte was leading 5/1 2nd set against Lendl; had 2 mps
Chang had tendinitis in his right leg and Krickstein in his elbow
Lendl thus has a 17/0 HH against Gilbert. I'm not sure about the tb score.
