Lendl Battles Into Quarterfinals

June 01, 1987|Associated Press

PARIS — Ivan Lendl turned a nightmare into a dream match today with a 2-6, 6-1, 5-7, 6-0, 6-2 victory over Joakim Nystrom to roar into the men's quarterfinals of the French Open.

Boris Becker, Mats Wilander and Jimmy Connors also advanced to the quarterfinals, while Argentina's Gabriela Sabatini clinched a spot in the women's semifinals. The Lendl-Nystrom match had been suspended by darkness in the chill twilight Sunday. It resumed under warm, sunny skies on Center Court, and Lendl's play was as much changed as the weather.
