To some degree a symbolic match in retrospect, in which the best player of the 80s lost to the best player of the 90s. For the former  it was the last big final while the latter  collected the first out of his 11 Masters 1K titles. Quite strange event for the 21-year-old Sampras overall. He was struggling in the first two rounds against inferior opponents, then with relative ease (eight straight ‘6-3′ sets (!) counting his tough match vs Woodforde) he defeated three Top 10ers. In his last match the first two sets went with a logic of one break per set, however, in the 3rd set Lendl broke back twice; there were five consecutive breaks (between 2:1 & 5:3), and then serving for the championship the 11 years younger American needed just one minute (ace, two service winners, forced BH error with a volley) to raise his arms in victory.
Sampras’ route to his 11th title:
2 Francisco Montana 7-6(7), 3-6, 6-3
3 Mark Woodforde 2-6, 7-6(8), 6-3 – 1 m.p.
Q Petr Korda 6-3, 6-3
S Stefan Edberg 6-3, 6-3
W Ivan Lendl 6-3, 3-6, 6-3
