    Points won by each set: | 35-28, 24-27, 32-21, 27-9 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    44 % Rafter – 38 of 85
    27 % Philippoussis – 32 of 118

    Philippoussis committed three consecutive double faults serving to win the 2nd set – then facing double break point fired four service winners! He made his 13th and last double fault on match point – Rafter reacted like he won just a casual match in less important event 😉 Their third meeting and for the third time Rafter easily wins. They will face each other just once more, and Philippoussis takes it in straights (Hong Kong 2000)

    Rafter’s route to the second consecutive US Open title:
    1 Hicham Arazi 4-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-1
    2 Hernan Gumy 6-4, 6-1, 6-2
    3 David Nainkin 6-1, 6-1, 6-1
    4 Goran Ivanisevic 6-3, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1
    Q Jonas Bjorkman 6-2, 6-3, 7-5
