because in the 90s they didn't play slams on blue clay, red clay and green clay. They actually had different surfaces that complimented more styles than just Lance Armstrong 8 hour marathon grinding. Therefore on faster surfaces like Wimbledon and the US Open a player like Petros had the advantage over a baseliner. Even still Andre was an aggressive baseliner so he still had success on faster courts it’s just that Petros was optimized for those surfaces. As a consequence Andre did better than Petros on slower surfaces
