    Points won by each set: | 31-28, 47-44 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    23 % Hewitt – 19 of 80
    27 % Henman – 19 of 90

    The 19-year-old Hewitt [18] confirmed he was a real deal. After winning two titles on his Australian territory at the beginning of the new Century, he moved to the United States to collect another title, and he was clearly the best player of the season after the first two months with a 20-1 record (two Davis Cup rubbers included)! It was his first meeting against Henman [11] and he became the Brit’s toughest opponent (9-1 record in the end). The Scottsdale final didn’t indicate their rivalry would be so one-sided. There were three breaks of serve in the opener, Hewitt got a crucial one at 3-all. He was close to lose the 2nd set several times: *1:4 (15/40), 2:5 (30-all), 4:5 (two set points), 5:6 (30-all) – Hewitt’s aggressive second serve landed on the sideline.

    Hewitt’s route to his 5th title:
    1 Daniel Vacek 6-1, 6-7(3), 6-2
    2 Chris Woodruff 3-6, 6-2, 6-3
    Q Marcelo Rios 7-6(5), 4-2 ret.
    S Juan C. Ferrero 6-4, 6-2
    W Tim Henman 6-4, 7-6(2)

    Serve & volley: Hewitt 0, Henman 5/8
