Ugly match, the first out of three Ferreira’s [17] Masters 1K finals. He was playing quite good tennis based on aggressive serves until he led 3:2* in the 2nd set, having hit twofold more winners. Then the extremely solid Courier [1] managed to get 10 of the final 11 games while the South African was indicating pain in his right shoulder.

Courier’s route to his 12th title (2nd IW):
2 David Wheaton 6-3, 7-6(5)
3 Todd Martin 7-5, 6-2
Q Marc Rosset 6-3, 6-7(3), 6-3
S Michael Chang 6-4, 6-4
W Wayne Ferreira 6-3, 6-3, 6-1
