Sampras’ amazing performance, perhaps his best at Wimbledon. Agassi was in a great form at the time, he advanced to four consecutive major finals and won three of them (Paris, New York, Melbourne), but in London he had no chance. Sampras saved a triple break point at 3-all in the 1st set to win five straight games, almost six – led 2:0* (30/0). In the 3rd set Agassi led 5:4* when Sampras easily won the last three games finishing the championship with two aces.

Q Mark Philippoussis 4-6, 2-1 ret.
