    Points won directly behind the serve:
    37 % Sampras – 41 of 108
    27 % Gustafsson – 26 of 94

    Vintage Sampras, especially in regard to his awesome serve. He broke his opponent at the end of each set and held comfortably throughout – the only break point fought off with an ace. The 31-year-old Gustafsson played his last Aussie Open match, he didn’t bother to go to Australia in another three years of his career. I’d like to add their Aussie Open ’94 quarterfinal, but it’s unavailable for now. Gustafsson is one of the most unfulfilled Open Era players considering majors. The Swede reached the quarterfinals just once (42 appearances), in that ’94 Melbourne event.
