    Their second Masters 1K semifinal on clay which was rather unlikely (previously in Rome ’94) given their game-styles. Becker [3] played that Roman match in his style typical for hardcourts, attacking the net almost constantly behind the 1st serve. Ivanisevic [7] was serving at 6:5 (30-all) in the opener, in the tie-break he led 6:5* (unreturned serve) and 8:7 (Becker’s great action at the net). Very tight match had its anticlimax, there was 1-all (30-all) in the decider when the German won the last five games finishing the 2-hour 5-minute contest with an ace down the line.

    Serve & volley: Becker 19/38, Ivanisevic 1/2
