    The event was moved from December to September. He’s the only man to win the Compaq Grand Slam Cup twice (he previously did it in the first edition – 1990). “Because he just won the U.S. Open, it raised my intensity,” Sampras said. “He’s No. 3 now, so you come out firing.” “It was very frustrating for me out there,” Rafter said. “He’s just too good and too strong. I’ve got to look for something new, something different to crack Pete.” A week before they met in the Davis Cup semifinals, and Sampras won 6-7, 6-1, 6-1, 6-4.

    Sampras’ road to the title:
    1 Mantilla 6-4, 3-6, 6-2
    Q Bjorkman 7-6(6), 6-4
    S Rusedski 3-6, 7-6(1), 7-6(4), 6-2
    W Rafter 6-2, 6-4, 7-5
