It was one of the gutsiest if not the gutsiest performances ever.
I wasn't a Sampras fan (I was rooting for Corretja and I was a few feet from the Sampras "crew" as well as the old farts (Champions box) who were almost uniformly for Sampras. But after that match I became a fan. Sampras threw up just to the side of me. Never saw that from the #1 before. When he turned around to face his coach (and away from the TV camera) you could see he looked ill. I don't know how he played threw that one. It was just a huge performance.
