    Points won by each set: | 39-39, 44-47, 28-22, 32-31, 32-20 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    34 % Sampras – 54 of 155
    13 % Courier – 25 of 179

    Memorable 3-hour 59-encounter concluded past midnight, between two former doubles partners and the best players in the world of the last three years (Courier – 1992, Sampras 1993-94) due to Sampras’ emotional breakdown [ his coach Tim Gullikson was hospitalized a week before (he’ll die in 1996)… ]
    No breaks of serve in the first two sets. Sampras trailed *2:4 in the 4th set when he managed to win five games in a row. As Sampras led 4:3* in the 5th set, Courier blew five game points before losing his serve and the match in the following game (Sampras took the final seven points).
