Unseeded Jim Grabb turned in a brilliant display of serve-and-volley tennis Wednesday night and upset No. 2-seeded Mats Wilander of Sweden, 7-5, 6-4, in the second round of the $525,000 Stockholm Open-Scandinavian Championships at Stockholm.
"It was my best win ever," said Grabb, a 23-year-old former All-American from Stanford. "Mats didn't play so well, and I was able to put a lot of pressure on him."
In other matches, top-seeded Stefan Edberg beat Richey Reneberg, 6-7, 6-0, 6-2; No. 3-seeded Joakim Nystrom of Sweden trounced Joey Rive, 6-2, 6-1, and No. 5-seeded Anders Jarryd of Sweden downed Nduka Odizor of Nigeria, 6-3, 6-4.
Chris Evert dropped the first two games but recovered and beat Andrea Holikova of Czechoslovakia, 6-4, 6-1, in the Virginia Slims of New England tournament at Worcester, Mass.
