Movement aside, Sampras had the steely nerve that served him well in big events and on big points. He was, as someone put it, "as cool as a cucumber."

Agassi was somewhat fragile mentally (even though he got tougher and tougher gradually), and once Sampras established dominance, he really didn't feel like he could beat Pete. He confessed that even if he played his best tennis, Pete could still beat him.
