NEW YORK -- This was the match everyone was geared up for at the U.S. Open. A match between No. 1 Pete Sampras and the big-serving Mark Philippoussis.Because Philippoussis beat Sampras in straight sets at the Australian Open, and because he can match Sampras big serve for big serve, observers anticipate another upset every time they meet.But in their match at Wimbledon, Sampras stalked off with a quick three-set victory over the 20-year-old Australian.And last night, in a scene reminiscent of something out of "Raiders of the Lost Ark," where Indiana Jones gets tired of watching some bad guy demonstrate his sword skills and simply shoots him, Sampras got his first break on Philippoussis' second service game and galloped away into the night, 6-3, 6-3, 6-4.The final game was all anyone needed to know about this match.

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Since Andre Agassi burst on the scene with peroxide in his hair and fire in his forehand, he has been called many things: showman, pitchman, underachiever and, ultimately, champion.Until now, "escape artist" did not make the list.But the player who has changed appearance nearly as often as others change channels has transformed himself once more at this Australian Open. Already one of the most dangerous front-runners in men's tennis, he has proved himself capable of staring down big deficits and finding a way to win in five sets.
