Fascinating match in the first three sets which unfortunately turned into a borefest in the last two. Rafter  was serving & hitting forehands above his standards (for instance he struck two straight aces at 1-all, 15/40 in the 3rd set) and the crowd could expect the first Australian finalist since Pat Cash in 1988. Rafter felt cramps at the beginning of the 4th set though, took a medical time-out trailing *1:2 and was never the same afterwards. His acrobatic skills at the net disappeared, on Agassi’s service games he was simply helpless (the American won the last 18 points on serve). I think that if Agassi  had been more focused on return games, he could have won the last two sets “6-1 6-1” or something similar. Rafter’s last match in his home Slam, at the age of 29… somehow expected because at the beginning of the season he said it’d be his last.
