“I felt good from the start, I returned well and I was getting my first serves in,” Becker said. “I played amazing tennis; I didn’t make any mistakes. I enjoyed playing at home.” When they met two years before in the same Olympiahalle, Ivanisevic won 6-4, 6-1 in the quarterfinals. Ivanisevic didn’t get to ‘deuce’ in any of Becker’s 15 service games (98% points won when the 1st serve in) in the final though.
Becker’s road to the title (49th and the last one in his career):
1 Jason Stoltenberg 6-3, 6-2
Q Jakob Hlasek 6-4, 6-1
S Tim Henman 7-6(4), 6-3, 6-1
W Goran Ivanisevic 6-3, 6-4, 6-4
