In a repeat of the previous year's final, three-time former champion Hingis won the first set 6–4 having led 5–1 at one stage. Hingis then took a 4–0 lead in the second set, and held 3 championship points, but Capriati fought back to take it into a tiebreaker, which Hingis had another championship point at 7-6 in the tiebreak, but Capriati saved it and eventually won the tiebreaker 9–7. Hingis then broke Capriati's serve in the third set to lead 2–1, but defending champion Capriati won the next five games to complete a 4–6, 7–6(7), 6–2 victory, and in doing so gained the record for most match points saved in a Grand Slam final.
