    One of the best semifinals in the “Masters” history. Each of them didn’t lose a service game at the group stage! The German broke at 5:4 in the 2nd set after the longest game of the match (three deuces). No ‘deuce’ game in the 3rd set; in the tie-break Becker led 6:3* (Goran’s two aces, passing winner) and 7:6 before won it 9/7 diving twice (!) on his fifth match point. Becker’s last tie-break of the season – he finished the year with one of the best tie-break records in history by percentage obtained from many tie-breaks 25-7 (.766)
