2004 -Gaudio :(
2003 - no one
2002 - Costa, i think he did it o.k.
2001 - Goran :(
2000 - no one
.... *some help here*

Remember, this is just in a constructive way. It's not about Gaston, Jim, Andre, clay season (Goran won Wimbledon in 2001)

Hey Goran beat Guga 62 67 64 in Sydney Masters 2001 and was robed by JCF on a set point for him:mad: referee made big mistake on a baseline call an JCF was fortunate to escape and said nothing whereas he was just on the ball :rolleyes:

I remember it really pissed me out :o

Costa had three big fights in round robin in Shanghai so yeah his masters campaign was a success and he was very close to be a semifinalist instead of Hewitt. Should Costa had beaten Moya, Federer would have won the masters IMO and he would now have hat trick :)


Goran was 13th before entering Masters 2001 with 322 points, Costa 11th in 2002 (394), Gaudio 10th in 2004 (384).

Sorry, Pasteur. I forgot about that Guga match. I thought he went 0-3 ;)
