Krajicek’s  first win over Sampras  in second of their ten meetings. At the beginning of the decider Krajicek’s movement was limited due to sore left knee. The ATP trainer (Bill Norris) rubbed an ointment & it helped. The decisive moment came as Sampras was trailing *2:4 in the tie-break – the Dutchman played his best forehand on that day responding to Sampras’ first serve. On the first match point the American sent his forehand wide to lose the breaker 3/7. That defeat initiated Sampras’ bizarre streak of being eliminated in three consecutive hardcourt events after 6-7 in the final sets!
