MichaelChang, that's an awesome match and really high quality image on youtube - I recommend this classic to any avid tennis fan... real changing of the guard... and the game has so slowed down since then - had Djoker peaked around this time he'd barely make the top five IMHO...

Both Fed and Sampras were indeed hitting with 6.0 85s but Sampras has a much heavier frame here. If you dig deep on the boards here you can uncover his stick stats - pretty insane the weight of his weapon, but he still stands as the best server of all time. Anyone give us the Fed lowdown re: 6.0 ?

He also went on to win Wimbledon the following year after this loss to FedEx before retiring...
