Ivanisevic Reaches Final After Rafter Classic
by Press Release|
Ivanisevic and Rafter rolled back the years, serving and volleying acrobatically to the delight of the crowd in London. Rafter even made one diving volley which brought Ivanisevic to his knees in disbelief. When the Australian took the first set, he looked the more convincing of the two players, but Ivanisevic kept serving away and eventually levelled. In the deciding set Champions' Tie-Break, Ivanisevic took a 9-6 lead, and eventually held on to win it 10-8.
"I saw Pat eating a banana sandwich before the match," said Ivanisevic. "There's no way I'm losing to a guy who eats banana sandwiches."
