Agassi led 4:1* (30-all) in the 2nd set…. “I’m more pleased with the victory today than the ranking” Sampras said. “The ranking isn’t quite as significant. It’s nice, but beating Andre, who had a phenomenal year, is what I’m most pleased about.” “There’s no question it was a great year, but the ending is disappointing” Agassi said. “You want to feel that somebody beat your best tennis and that you felt great about the way you played. It was a big match today and I didn’t raise the level.”
