Default 1993 Wimbledon Sampras vs Becker (SF) and Courier (F) stats

Sampras - Becker 7-6, 6-4, 6-4

1st serve %

sampras 61 ( 62, 58, 64 )
becker...51 ( 60, 28, 64 )

after making first 2 1st serves in the 2nd set, becker's 1st serve pct was healthy 61 %. than he missed 15 1st serves in a row
that is the longest streak of missed 1st serves i ever saw (so far) ; mcenroe " boris is serving at what, 15 pct this set?...no, wait, it's 12.5 pct...i gave him too much credit there"
after that, becker's pct to the end of the match was again 61 %. so he basically served 61 % minus that black hole of 15 missed serves

one more thing - becker said before the match that sampras serves big, but not as big as stich, whom he played in qf...agassi basically said the same before their qf match, comparing sampras to krajicek (agassi beat krajicek round earlier)

1st serve pts won %

sampras 84 ( 96, 77, 78 )
becker...92 ( 88, 100, 94)

2nd serve pts won %

sampras 60 ( 57, 50, 80 )
becker...45 ( 47, 48, 33 )

becker...14 ( 4, 4, 6 )

this really hurt becker. he blamed it on his tired legs, after his epic match vs stich
