The almost 2-hour final between the two best players at the time. Agassi was enjoying the best period of his career. After the victory over Sampras, he had won 10 matches in a row. The streak was finished at 26 when Agassi lost to… Sampras in the US Open ’95 final. “This tournament means a lot to me,” said Agassi “This is where it started for me last year, it has special meaning for that. And it’s winning tournaments like this that make you No. 1.” He got the deciding break at 2:1 in the 3rd set and finished with a forehand volley.
