True. But strangely, Courier had most success when the competition was best, 91-93. For example, end 92 the top10: Courier, Edberg, Sampras, Ivanisevic, Becker, Chang, Korda, Lendl and Krajicek. Now some weren't the players they had been, or the players they would become, so that looks stronger than it is ....... but still, topping that lot takes some doing.
Oddly enough, despite the level of the field dropping away seriously as the 90s went on, Courier never regained the level of those years.
