    Sampras saved a set point serving at *5:6 in the 3rd set. If Chang had won the match, he’d have dethronized Sampras as the leader of the tennis world. Chang will be coaching Kei Nishikori during the US Open final 18 years later.

    Sampras’ route to the title:
    1 Jimy Szymanski 6-2, 6-1, 6-1
    2 Jiri Novak 6-3, 1-6, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4
    3 Alexander Volkov 6-3, 6-4, 6-2
    4 Mark Philippoussis 6-3, 6-3, 6-4
    Q Alex Corretja 7-6(5), 5-7, 5-7, 6-4, 7-6(7) – 1 m.p.
    S Goran Ivanisevic 6-3, 6-4, 6-7(9), 6-3
    W Michael Chang 6-1, 6-4, 7-6(3)
