    Points won directly behind the serve:
    42 % Sampras – 29 of 69
    21 % Kafelnikov – 16 of 76

    Kafelnikov had break points in Sampras’ first three service games, since then never got ‘deuce’, only once winning two points…“We both got off to a slow start, then everything just clicked, from serves to returns and ground strokes,” Sampras said. “Yevgeny, I think, got a little bit down on himself and started missing some shots. I took advantage of it because it gave me that much more confidence. I felt I played extremely well.”
