He defeated him mostly from the baseline, but he volleyed well when he needed to.
Rafter was trying to kick his serve out the forehand but Sergi moderating his swing and blocked a lot of them low to the incoming volleyer. Bruguera's backhand pass was on fire that day, the contrast between them was great Rafter all over the net, Bruguera with the passing shots, the angles crosscourt.
Rafter should have won the match really, he had chances and Bruguera won
7-6, 3-6, 4-6, 7-5, 13-11
