    Points won by each set: | 49-53, 38-28, 33-25, 10-25, 33-28 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    23 % Agassi – 37 of 156
    48 % Ivanisevic – 81 of 166

    Agassi [14] wasted a set point in the tie-break (7:6 – Ivanisevic’s second serve ace) of that 2-hour 50-minute final. In the deciding set he managed to save a crucial break point at 3-all (four deuces – the longest game of the match). Agassi obtained his breaks in sets 2 and 3 in the opening games of those sets. In the decider he was seven points away from defeat at 4-all (30/15). Ivanisevic [8] began the last game of the final committing two consecutive double faults. Facing the first match point, he netted a relatively easy backhand volley… In the 6th game of the 2nd set Agassi played twice serve-and-volley, a rarity for him in a game; Ivanisevic in the 3rd set, stayed on the baseline the only time in the final behind his second serve, trailing 1:3 (40/0).

    Agassi’s route to his 16th title:
    1 Andrei Chesnokov 5-7, 6-1, 7-5, 7-5
    2 Eduardo Masso 4-6, 6-1, 6-3, 6-3
    3 Derrick Rostagno 6-3, 7-6(4), 7-5
    4 Christian Saceanu 7-6(1), 6-1, 7-6(0)
    Q Boris Becker 4-6, 6-2, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3
    S John McEnroe 6-4, 6-2, 6-3
    W Goran Ivanisevic 6-7(8), 6-4, 6-4, 1-6, 6-4

    Fastest serves at Wimbledon ’92: Rosset (215 kph), Forget (210 kph), Stich (209 kph), Ivanisevic & Sampras (207 kph)

    Ivanisevic’s 37 aces it was definitely a record in major finals at the time, whether it was a Wimbledon record or not, it’s an open question… some sources say that British John Feaver struck 42 aces with his wooden racquet against John Newcombe at Wimbledon ’76, but I doubt it; Newcombe won it 6-3, 3-6, 8-9, 6-4, 6-4
