    Stats without service winners/unreturned serves. Here is the match description game by game on BBC website.

    Exceptionally quick match for a 5-setter with a solid number of games (lasted only 2 hours 44 minutes). Decisive break of the 5th set came at 3:2 for Agassi, who finished the match with an ace. Agassi’s last advancement to a major final, certainly helped the fact his 12 years younger compatriot was playing fourth consecutive five-set match at the US Open – no-one did it before.
    The 23-year-old Ginepri then, enjoyed the best period of his tennis-career in the second half of 2005: he won his biggest title in Indianapolis, and reached three semifinals of prestigious tournaments – Cincinnati, US Open and Madrid – losing every time after competitive matches to the best players in the world (Federer, Agassi & Nadal respectively)… Two weeks ago he announced his retirement being ranked No. 1002. In the last few years he was struggling with injuries and actually he finished his competitive career at the main-level after the US Open 2010.
