Remarkable 2-hour 38-minute match due to Johansson’s unbelievable service performance, and a new record of aces overcoming 49 aces of Krajicek (in five sets) struck six years earlier. The Swede  employed extremely aggressive tactics, trying to hit the ball as hard as he could not only on serve, but also during rallies. It almost gave him a two-sets-to-love lead – Agassi  withstood a mini-set point at 3:4 in the 2nd set though, with a forehand passing-shot winner. In the 4th set the Swede led *2:0 (deuce) to lose four straight games.
51 aces & 24 service winners/nonreturnable serves, mind-blowing stuff in four sets on a hardcourt, yet he lost his serve thrice
Number of aces in sets respectively: 14, 16, 9, 12
His aces on 2nd serve: 14th, 25th, 27th, 33rd, 35th & 51st
