Sampras lost only 18 games in Lyon 1992. It was on carpet where winning sets easily is more difficult than on clay.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Re: Losing the lowest quantity of games and winning tournament

Easy, considering this was an answer to one of my Useless Trivia questions.

Kent Carlsson lost 10 games and 5 were in the first match when he won Bologna in 87.

R32 Meinecke, Tore (GER) 6-1 6-4
R16 Rebolledo, Pedro (CHI) 6-0 6-1
Q Davin, Franco (ARG) 6-0 6-0
S Cane, Paolo (ITA) 6-1 6-0
W Sanchez, Emilio (ESP) 6-2 6-1

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Oops, sorry. Mispirint.... I thought about Lyon 1991.

R16 Champion, Thierry (FRA) 6-1 6-3
Q Svensson, Jonas (SWE) 6-2 6-2
S Gilbert, Brad (USA) 6-1 6-2

This is impressive seeing that Davin, Cane and E.Sanchez were the good clay-court players at that time.

Well, it's not like Carlsson was a donkey.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
