    Points won by each set: | 36-28, 34-28 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    40 % Sampras – 25 of 62
    28 % Courier – 18 of 64

    An indicator what was coming at the top of men’s tennis… Courier was the best player in the world then, yet his one year younger compatriot [3] defeated him rather easily, just like a year before on the same court (6-3, 7-6). Sampras needed breaks at 2-all in the opener and at 3-all in the 2nd set. He didn’t drop a point in his three opening service games.

    Sampras’ route to his 12th title:
    2 Stephane Sansoni 6-0, 6-1
    3 Todd Witsken 6-4, 7-5
    Q Thomas Enqvist 6-0, 7-6(6)
    S Boris Becker 6-7(5), 6-2, 7-6(4)
    W Jim Courier 6-4, 6-4

    Sampras three points away from a loss to Becker; he defended his title beating the same players in the last two matches, but in a reverse order
