Thomas Muster have and incredible 40-5 record on clay court finals
, I think the best record ever. In 1995 he won a career-high 12 titles in 14 finals
, highlighted by his first career Grand Slam title at the French Open (He also reached the junior final ten years ago) Opened his claycourt dominance (65-2 record
) in Mexico City where he won for the third consecutive year (d. Meligeni) That was the start of 40 consecutive claycourt match victories
(from February to June) and seven titles
- Estoril (d. A. Costa), Barcelona (d. Larsson), Mercedes Super 9 stops in Monte Carlo (d. Becker) and Rome (d. Bruguera), French Open (d. Chang) and St. Pölten (d. Ulihrach) His winnig streak ended in July in the 1st RD of Gstaad to Corretja. The clay streak was the longest since Bjorn Borg won 44 in a row from 1977-79. Also his record againts latin players ¡best clay court players! is amazing ... (12-3 over Bruguera 6-2 on clay)
Thomas is the best clay court player since Borg. He's not the best player in RG since Björn for sure. But we are talking about clay Court Masters not RG winners or runner up.
Bjorg is The Roland Garros Master and Muster is one of the biggest Clay Masters ever!
THOMAS MUSTER IS THE "REAL" CLAY COURT MASTER IN THE 90's
