I was wondering who people thought was the best clay-courter never to win Roland Garros since 1990. Here are my four nominations, who among these was the best on clay and yet failed to take the ultimate clay court crown? Alex Correjta: Won the title in Rome in 97(d. Rios) and made the finals of Roland Garros twice in 98 and 01, losing to prime Moya and prime Kuerten. Made the finals of Hamburg 96(l. to Carretero) and Monte Carlo 97(l. to Rios). Made at least the quarterfinals of RG five years in a row(98-02) Guillermo Coria: Reached the RG finals once and absolutely should have won. Won Hamburg 03(d. Calleri) and Monte Carlo 04(d. Schuettler). Made finals of Monte Carlo 03(l. to Ferrero) and 05(l. to Nadal). Made final of Rome once(l. to Nadal). Andriy Medvedev: Similarly to Coria reached the final of Roland Garros and lost after leading two sets to love over Agassi. In 93 and 94 lost to eventual champion Bruguera, and in 97 lost to eventual champion Kuerten in five sets. Won Hamburg 94(d. Kafelnikov), 95(d. Ivanisevic), 97(d. Mantilla) as well as Monte Carlo 94(d. Bruguera) Marcelo Rios: Never got past the quarterfinals of Roland Garros, though in 98 he lost in 4 sets to the eventual champion Moya. However, he did win all 3 of the clay Masters, Monte Carlo 97(d. Corretja), Rome 98(d. Costa) and Hamburg 99(d. Zabaleta). Reached the final of Monte Carlo 99(l. to Kuerten) and Rome 97(l. to Corretja). Which of these was the best? My personal vote goes to Medvedev as the best clay-courter never to win Roland Garros.
