First match and last match that you saw of him?
The first match I saw of him live was when he beat Michael Stich in 1993 in Lyon (he was ranked around 100 at that time and pretty well unknown though he already beat Stich earlier in the season in Barcelona).
I was pretty impressed at that time with that guy and I knew there that he would be a great champion. In 1996, he easily won the French Open against ... Michael Stich
More that 14 years later, I still remember this was a great match. I was also attending his 1996 final in Lyon when he beat Arnaud Boetsch in a tough match.
