    Points won by each set: | 37-34, 44-38, 22-26, 26-21 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    52 % Sampras – 59 of 113
    27 % Courier – 37 of 135

    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 he serve throughout the final was astonishing.

    Sampras’ route to his first Wimbledon crown:
    1 Neil Borwick 6-7(10), 6-3, 7-6(3), 6-3
    2 Jamie Morgan 6-4, 7-6(5), 6-4
    3 Byron Black 6-4, 6-1, 6-1
    4 Andrew Foster 6-1, 6-2, 7-6(6)
    Q Andre Agassi 6-2, 6-2, 3-6, 3-6, 6-4
    S Boris Becker 7-6(5), 6-4, 6-4
    W Jim Courier 7-6(3), 7-6(6), 3-6, 6-3
