Are you sure about that? Ivanisevic beat both Lendl and Sampras at 1992 Wimbledon without even facing a break point. I certainly gave Agassi very little chance of beating Ivanisevic. Sampras was favoured against Courier because it was grass and the matchup issue, but Sampras hadn't won a major in nearly 3 years while Courier had reached 7 major finals in the previous 10 majors.
