not sure, I didn't mark them down, either one or two ...

sampras FH winners by set: 3,5,3,1
sampras BH winners by set: 0,2,1,2
sampras BHV winners by set:2,0,4,1

I have agassi making 1 FHV in the 3rd set

I haven't marked those , unfortunately

It was a lob and an excellent one at that. sampras tried his best but couldn't get his racquet on it ..

probably, I do remember one point where agassi who was at the net passed sampras at the net with a BH down the line
