Another that looks good.

Sampras-Agassi, 1999 Los Angeles final, 7-6, 7-6

CBS News online:

The match was as tight as could be, except for the tiebreakers, where Sampras won 14 of the 18 points contested.

Otherwise, Agassi won 74 points to 68 for Sampras.

"Two tiebreakers," Sampras said when asked the difference in the one-hour, 35-minute match. "Andre is so tough for me to play. He returns so well."

But not in the tiebreakers, where Sampras' service was invincible. He served five winners in the first-set tiebreaker, with one ace and three serves.

Meanwhile, Agassi was 3-2 on his serve.

Agassi opened the second-set tiebreaker with a double-fault -- his only one of the match. Sampras followed with an ace, and it was all downhill from there. Agassi won a point on his serve to make it 3-1 before Sampras won four straight points to close out the match.

Sampras was 4-0 while serving in the second-set tiebreaker with his 11th and final ace along with unreturnable serves.

Agassi had 10 aces in the match, and won 52 of 70 service points. But it wasn't enough. Sampras won 64 of 90 service points.
The points won on serve are the same numbers the ATP has. However the ATP has Sampras leading in overall points by 82-78. And mathematically those must be the correct numbers if Sampras went 64/90 on serve and Agassi 52/70.
