Points won by each set: | 31-21, 29-18 |
Points won directly behind the serve:
17 % Massu – 8 of 47
13 % Philippoussis – 7 of 52

Surprisingly easy win for Massu [11] which gave Chile the defence of the title at the World Team Cup in Dusseldorf. Philippoussis [18] was tired after three demanding “round robin” matches. The Australian had defeated Spadea & Zabaleta saving a match point in the 3rd set, and Schalken being two points away from a straight set defeat! He began the Massu match with pain in the arm, so he couldn’t deliver his powerful serves and the Chilean dismantled him in 77 minutes.

Fernando Gonzalez – Lleyton Hewitt 7-5, 6-2
Nicolas Massu – Mark Philippoussis 6-3, 6-1
Adrian Garcia/Nicolas Massu – Wayne Arthurs/Paul Hanley 4-6, 4-6
