    Points won by each set: | 47-45, 28-23, 27-36, 30-34, 40-35 |

    Stats without first four games, number of aces/double faults/break points should be correct for the entire match… In that 5-hour 3-minute final, Rosset served 35 aces (15, 1, 4, 6, 9) – through many years it was a clay-court record. “A couple of times, I wanted to go to the locker room and have a couple of Cokes,” Rosset said, “but then, I knew if I did that, everybody would want to kill me. You can’t quit just because you are tired.” The 22-year-old Rosset was ranked 44 at the time, while the 28-year-old Arrese No. 30. Already reaching the semifinals meant a huge achievement for them both!

    Rosset’s (SUI) route to the gold medal:
    1 Karim Alami (MOR) 6-2, 4-6, 2-1 ret.
    2 Wayne Ferreira (RSA) 6-4, 6-0, 6-2
    3 Jim Courier (USA) 6-4, 6-2, 6-1
    Q Emilio Sanchez (ESP) 6-4, 7-6(2), 3-6, 7-6(9)
    S Goran Ivanisevic (CRO) 6-3, 7-5, 6-2
    W Jordi Arrese (ESP) 7-6(2), 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 8-6
