Ivan Lendl's eternal quest for the Wimbledon title reached its annual dead end today against Stefan Edberg, who will face Boris Becker in the final for the third consecutive year. The third-seeded Edberg did not lose his serve in the 6-1, 7-6, 6-3 victory over Lendl and never was seriously threatened by a man who has made no secret of his burning desire to win the only major title to have eluded him.

The emotion runneth over on the Stadium Court at the U.S. Open. First, the remarkable performance of an ill Pete Sampras on Thursday night. Then the final Grand Slam appearance of Stefan Edberg, the gentleman of tennis. His farewell in the quarterfinal against fourth-seeded Goran Ivanisevic was a sentimental reminder of what tennis will miss when the 30-year-old Swede retires at the end of the season--his class and grace and, not least, his elegant volleys.

As the shadows on the Stadium Court lengthened Tuesday evening, so did the U.S. Open career of Stefan Edberg. The unseeded Edberg, a veteran in the twilight of his career, fended off the determined efforts of 21-year-old Tim Henman in a fourth-round match that lasted 3 hours 5 minutes. Edberg won, 6-7 (7-2), 7-6 (7-2), 6-4, 6-4. Edberg broke Henman in the ninth game of the fourth set to put himself in the position of serving for the match. In fitting style, Edberg won it with an ace.

Tennis fans at the U.S. Open may be iconoclastic and rude, but they are fans. When they are in their seats and not at a concession stand, they cheer. If fans here like a player, they let it be known. Two players were lavished with affection Sunday: the tempestuous Goran Ivanisevic and his behavioral opposite, the sedate Stefan Edberg. The fourth-seeded Ivanisevic entertained well and took four match points to beat Hendrik Dreekmann, 6-3, 6-2, 7-6 (13-11), in a third-round match.

The black limos were parked at the curb and the floral arrangements were in place beside the casket, but suddenly, the old guy began to sputter and wheeze. Cancel the wake. Stefan Edberg is alive and well. Those who follow the U.S. Open tennis tournament, and especially those who broadcast and write about it, had Edberg dead and gone the moment the draw was completed last Thursday.
