Never before or after, Wimbledon defending champion was beaten so severely (the match lasted just 1 hour 27 minutes)… Actually, Sampras for the first time displayed his amazing grass-court potential. Until Wimbledon ’92, he had a miserable 1-3 record at the ‘All-England Club’, and his road to the quarter-finals in 1992 wasn’t impressive either. Yet against Stich, he was brilliant all over the place, his backhand perghaps better than ever.
