    The biggest success in career of the 25-year-old [at the time] Rusedski. He won just 1 out of 10 meetings vs. Sampras. Perhaps it was the best match of his life, but Sampras’ back problems took part in the surprising scoreline (the American led 5:2* in the 2nd set):
    “He’s been hot all week and has pretty much kicked everybody’s butt,” Sampras said. “My hat is off to him.”

    Rusedski’s route to the title:
    2 Nicolas Kiefer 6-3, 6-4
    3 Jason Stoltenberg 7-6(6), 6-4
    Q Magnus Gustafsson 6-3, 6-2
    S Yevgeny Kafelnikov 6-3, 4-6, 6-4
    W Pete Sampras 6-4, 7-6(4), 6-3
