oh really ? agassi never had a chance vs sampras @ the USO ?

90 - favorite coming into the final .. had been to the RG final that year ...sampras was a relative nobody until that USO

95 - agassi won what , 26 matches in a row that summer coming into the final ....... had beaten sampras in one of the tourneys before the USO, had beaten him @ the AO

2001 - sampras had no titles for more than an year at that stage and had slumped in the rankings. agassi OTOH was #2

2002- sampras' situation coming into the USO was even worse than before; he had lost to LL bastl @ wimbledon ....was titleless for 2+ years ...
