And then in the following day, Sampras lost to Haarhuis 6-4,6-4 in the 2R.

Only two seeds (Agassi and Chang) are left in the tournament, and
we haven't reached the final yet :-). If there are people who really
wanted to watch Sampras in Philadelphia, I sure hope that they went
to the 1R (or 2R); they have been warned several times already. As
long as we have "best 14," we'll continue to have these "major upsets"
in tournaments such as Philadelphia, the Canadian Open, the Hamlet ....
