    Total points: 89-72
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    30 % – Safin 25 of 82
    44 % – Sampras 35 of 79

    Sampras had his only break points in the last game of the championships –
    Safin saved them with shots he hadn’t tried in the final until that moment: drive-volley & overhead.

    Safin’s route to his first Grand Slam title:
    1 Thierry Guardiola 7-5, 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-4
    2 Gianluca Pozzi 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4
    3 Sebastien Grosjean 6-4, 7-6(3), 1-6, 3-6, 7-6(5)
    4 Juan-Carlos Ferrero 6-1, 6-2, 6-2
    Q Nicolas Kiefer 7-5, 4-6, 7-6(5), 6-3
    S Todd Martin 6-3, 7-6(4), 7-6(1)
    W Pete Sampras 6-4, 6-3, 6-3

    # Safin was two points away from losing in the third round.
