I hope we have many more to add as time goes by
Yes it was a great match
I wasn't there in person but it was very exciting to watch on TV at the time, and I have most of the match on tape as well
(except for a couple of gaps in the first and third sets). It was so nerve-wracking watching it live at the time, especially when Sampras held break points at 4-all in the final set, and if he had won them then he would have been serving for the match
but Roger played superbly to save those points and then broke Sampras to 15 in the last game to win the fifth set 7-5. After he won Roger sat in his chair and was in tears.
It was really sweet and I'll never forget it.
