The same year they faced each other also in the US Open fourth round (Moya won in straights) & ‘Masters’ final with Corretja as a 5-set victor, even though it seemed like another straight set win for the younger Spaniard. In Paris, in the tightest 2nd set Moya [12] had break points at 4:3 and 5:4 (double set point). Corretja [14] will play another French Open final three years later…

Moya’s route to his 5th title:
1 Sebastien Grosjean 7-5, 6-1, 6-4
