90 - very poor perf from agassi

95 - agassi was actually playing slightly better in the first set, till pete broke him to take the set

2001 - agassi won the first set in a breaker

2002 - agassi was tired from the hewitt SF, so understandably started out flat ....

so, no, don't agree that in all the matches, that it looked like sampras would win from the get go .. especially not 1995, 2001
