Bottom line, Sampras was not very confident at this point. But he ended up winning this match and the tournament. Sampras is substance over style, for sure.

Generally speaking, outside of the fact that they both serve and volleyed, McEnroe and Sampras had very different skills. One thing I have noticed, they both are fantastic at timing their shots, adding or taking off pace and moving forward to cut off angles. They both had a knack for knowing where they were on the court and finding a way to win points on their terms.

Safin crushes the ball. Good highlights.
