    Points won by each set: | 38-39, 34-19, 28-18 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    32 % Hewitt – 25 of 77
    34 % Sampras – 34 of 99

    Before the 1-hour 54-minute final, Sampras had held 87 consecutive games, but in that overwhelming defeat vs Hewitt, he was broken already in his opening service game. They had faced each other on the same court a year before (in the semifinals) and Sampras won in straight sets.

    Hewitt’s route to his 10th title:
    1 Magnus Gustafsson 6-3, 6-2, 7-5
    2 James Blake 6-4, 3-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-0
    3 Albert Portas 6-1, 6-3, 6-4
    4 Tommy Haas 3-6, 7-6(2), 6-4, 6-2
    Q Andy Roddick 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4
    S Yevgeny Kafelnikov 6-1, 6-2, 6-1
    W Pete Sampras 7-6(4), 6-1, 6-1
