In the 2nd set, Courier saved a set point in two different games, and had his own leading 6:5* in the tie-break – Sampras responded with a forehand volley winner. The final lasted 2 hours 58 minutes, just like the Edberg-Becker Wimbledon final of 1990. Sampras lost his serve twice in the 3rd set, apart from that his serve throughout the final was astonishing.
