    Points won by each set: | 34-36, 42-36, 36-38, 35-31 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    46 % Agassi – 64 of 139
    50 % Johansson – 75 of 149

    Remarkable 2-hour 38-minute match due to Johansson’s unbelievable service performance, and a new record of aces overcoming 49 aces of Krajicek (in five sets) struck six years earlier. The Swede [11] employed extremely aggressive tactics, trying to hit the ball as hard as he could not only on serve, but also during rallies. It almost gave him a two-sets-to-love lead – Agassi [8] withstood a mini-set point at 3:4 in the 2nd set though, with a forehand passing-shot winner. In the 4th set the Swede led *2:0 (deuce) to lose four straight games.

    Placement of Johansson’s aces in the picture (29 deuce-court | 22 ad-court)

    51 aces & 24 service winners/nonreturnable serves, mind-blowing stuff in four sets on a hardcourt, yet he lost his serve thrice
    Number of aces in sets respectively: 14, 16, 9, 12
    His aces on 2nd serve: 14th, 25th, 27th, 33rd, 35th & 51st
