Hewitt had beaten Agassi in the semifinal? I know Pete was in excellent form throughout that tournament, but Hewitt had his number at that point, beating him 4 straight times, including that destruction in the US Open final the previous year. I really have a hard time seeing Sampras beating Hewitt if they had played again. Hewitt was in top form, and he had the perfect return to neutralize Sampras' serve and volley attack. I think Pete was very fortunate that Agassi came through that match with Hewitt.
