SERVICE Sampras had his highest service percentage at 2000 AO, with 63.46%. His lowest was 41% at 1992 RG. Agassi had his highest service percentage at 1990 USO, with 77%. His lowest was 43% at 1999 W. The loser usually served more points than the winner, with two exceptions. At 1995 USO, Sampras served 6 more points than Agassi (because he served one more game). And at 2002 USO, Sampras served 27 more points than Agassi, mostly in the last two sets when he was tiring. Sampras’ success on first serve (we don’t have stats for 1992 RG or 1993 W): 92% at 1990 USO 88% at 1999 W 86% at 1995 USO 80% at 2000 AO and 2002 USO 79% at 2001 USO 76% at 1995 AO Sampras’ success on second serve (again minus 1992 RG and 1993 W): 58.8% at 1990 USO 58.7% at 2001 USO 54% at 1995 USO 52% at 2002 USO 49% at 1999 W and 2000 AO 44% at 1995 AO WINNERS/ACES Agassi’s FH was usually the stroke that produced the most clean winners, except at 1990 USO and 2002 USO (at the latter, the leading stroke was Pete's forehand volley). However Sampras, except at 1992 RG, usually led all strokes with his aces. Sampras served a career high of 37 aces at 2000 AO. This amounts to aces on 24% of all the points he served in the match, his highest rate in the nine meetings. And he had just 5 double faults (his second-lowest in the nine meetings), giving him a service "differential" of 32, possibly a career high too. His low was 8 aces at 1992 RG. Agassi served 18 aces at 2001 USO (I wonder if that was a career high for him), and none at 1990 USO. The highest rate of winners belongs to Sampras at 2002 USO: he struck a clean winner or ace on 27% of all the points played. Next highest was his 24.7% at 2000 AO, and his 24.1% at 1999 W. Agassi’s highest rate was 19% at 1995 AO. ERRORS Agassi usually made fewer total errors (forced and unforced) than Sampras. He made more than Pete only in the two Wimbledon matches. Sampras served a high of 13 double faults at 2002 USO. Agassi served 7 at 1993 W and 6 at 1999 W -- the only matches in which he served more df's than Sampras. Each man served just one double-fault at 1990 USO (and Agassi served one at 1992 RG). Sampras usually led Agassi in drawing return errors, except at 1999 W and 2000 AO. PUBLISHED WINNERS AND ERRORS The highest “official” tally of winners belonged to Sampras at 2000 AO: 86 winners. He had 84 at 2002 USO and 80 at 2001 USO. Agassi’s highest “official” tally was 55 winners at 2001 USO. The highest published figure for unforced errors probably belonged to Sampras at 2000 AO: 56. I don’t have his figure for 1992 RG but it was probably lower. Agassi’s highest published count was probably at 1993 W but I don’t know what it was. MISCELLANEOUS Their longest match in terms of points (338), games (52) and elapsed time (3:32) was their four-setter at 2001 USO. Their five-setter at 2000 AO tied that match in games but not in points (304) or in elapsed time (2:55). They split 4-4 in tiebreaks, and 1-1 in five-setters. The winner of the first set took every match except at 1995 AO and 2001 USO. Sampras always came to net more than Agassi, except at 1992 RG (in fact Sampras had more winners there from ground strokes than from volleys and overheads, which also happened at 1995 AO). Agassi always got more winners from ground strokes and rarely ventured to net. His 110 approaches to net in the 1988 RG semifinal against Wilander remain, I think, unique in all the stats we've done for him -- unless Moose knows of something else.
