Super fast grass-court match and the shortest ATP final! Amazing that they played 20 games in just 44 minutes, but there was only one ‘deuce’ and all rallies were consisted of just 1-4 strokes while 1-2 stroke rallies were almost in majority (49 vs 47) which is unprecedented. Sampras  was broken in the 3rd and 1st games of the respective sets. After Manchester, Ivanisevic  was among favorites to the Wimbledon title for the first time in his career, but sensationally lost to Nick Brown  in the second round.
Ivanisevic’s route to his 2nd title:
1 Andrew Castle 7-5, 7-6(3)
2 Jeremy Bates 6-3, 6-4
Q Arne Thoms 7-5, 6-3
S Gary Muller 7-6(9), 7-6(4)
W Pete Sampras 6-4, 6-4
