I just counted the statistics for this match myself earlier today. The score was 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 to Safin. Unreturned serves were marked but never counted as unforced errors. Not all winners were clean winners (although the majority were) and it was sometimes difficult to distinguish between winners and forced errors. Here are the stats: Safin served at 49%; Sampras served at 65% Safin had 12 aces and 1 double fault; Sampras had 7 aces and 4 double faults Safin had 13 unreturned serves; Sampras had 25 unreturned serves Safin had 35 non-service winners; Sampras had 21 non-service winners Safin had 11 FH winners, 18 BH winners, 4 FHV winners, 1 BHV winner, 1 Smash winner Sampras had 6 FH winners, 1 BH winner, 5 FHV winners, 7 BHV winners, 2 Smash winners Safin had 12 unforced errors, Sampras had 20 unforced errors As you can see pretty much every statistic in this match goes against Sampras except for unreturned serve. Sampras's backhand let him down this day as over half his unforced errors occured on the backhand side and he only had one backhand winner. Sampras looked unusually uncomfortable at the net and was rushed and overpowered by Safin. Sampras did not have any break points until the last game of the match where Safin served his only double fault. However Safin saved two break points in the final game to win the match in straight sets.
