[56] Woodruff’s lone Grand Slam quarter-final. He was a heavy underdog, yet played very good tennis in the 1st set. He early led with a break, at *5:6 (15/40) he saved the double set point with two excellent passes, then had two game points, but made two casual forehand errors and lost the set – it was the crucial moment. Since then Sampras [3] completely controlled the rest of the match for more than an hour improving his open backhand.
