    Points won by each set: | 43-38, 43-41, 29-20 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    53 % Krajicek – 61 of 115
    46 % Sampras – 46 of 99

    Sampras’ first loss after 25 consecutive wins at Wimbledon. It’s arguably best victory in Krajicek’s career. He saved a break point in his opening game, then five break points to lead 2:1 (nine deuces), and the rain came at 2-all. After the rain-break Krajicek was serving like a machine to the end of the contest. He had only one difficult game as he saved a break point at 5-all in the 2nd set with a second serve winner. Krajicek’s aces by each set: 12, 10 & 7
