Hall of Fame
Wanted to try my hand in tennis highlights, there it goes. These are extended, maybe too detailed for some but I like the feel of telling a story.
A classic indoor match, serve-heavy and razor tight. Both players had set points in each set and ended up winning the same number of points. Forget had been Sampras's nemesis in 1991-92, winning three of their previous four matches (and still won more points in the USO meeting he lost), so it wasn't surprising to see Pete struggle with the Frenchman's lefty patterns. The key factor was Forget remarkably winning all five tiebreaks they played at the time, highlighting his mental prowess as well as early Sampras's relative trouble in that department before he grew into the god of clutchness we know. In this match, Forget faces 5 set points - all on serve - and one other BP, but makes his first serve on all six attempts and Sampras can't handle that.
