Points won by each set: [ 35-28, 29-20, 42-36 ]
Points won directly on serve:
46 % Stich – 42 of 91
31 % Novacek – 31 of 99
Easier win than the scoreline would suggest. Stich  got early breaks in the first two sets, but wasn’t able to consolidate. In the 3rd set Novacek  changed his tactics, he was more aggressive, saved break points in two games, but Stich found his perfect service motion and the Czech couldn’t do anything as a receiver – he won just 4 out of Stich’s 28 service points before the tie-break in which Stich quickly built a 5:1 advantage to finish 7/4 with an ace down the T.
