26 out of 38 games included (68%); numbers of aces, double faults & break points valid for the entire match.

…a Centre Court match of wasted chances for the Dutchman [12]:
1st set: mini-set point at 5-all and netted BH return off second serve
2nd set: set point at 6:5* in the tie-break – Agassi saved it with a FH-volley
3rd set: two set points in the tie-break – netted FH passing-shot at 7:6* and missed FH-volley at *8:7
The American [13] won the breakers 9/7 and 10/8. Krajicek should have actually won the second tie-break because having the set point on serve, he missed the volley from a position you could expect him winning 8 out of 10 points… # They faced each other at Wimbledon two years before, on court no. 1, and the progress was almost the same – Agassi won two tie-breaks, and in an other set, one break separated them

# Their two Wimbledon matches:
1991, 3rd round: Agassi d. Krajicek 7-6, 6-3, 7-6… 2 hours 2 minutes… (aces/double faults: 3/1 – 19/8)
1993, 4th round: Agassi d. Krajicek 7-5, 7-6, 7-6… 2 hours 40 minutes… (aces/double faults: 8/3 – 21/8)
