The last meeting between the 31-year-old Americans #, and quite similar scoreline to their first encounter eleven years earlier (7-6, 6-4 for Agassi). Martin  faced extremely difficult task to beat in a major Sampras and Agassi in back-to-back matches, no-one had done it before, but Martin could count on that until he led 5:4 serving very well (9 aces in the opener). Once Agassi  broke in the 11th game, he took control over the match. The defending champion lost his serve at 3-all in the 3rd set, but convincingly won the next three games finishing the almost 2-hour match with a backhand lob.
