At the beginning of the 90s, when they all were very young, I thought of each one of them as sure multi-Slam winners in the future, but at the end each one of them only managed to win one single Slam title, at Wimbledon.

They were three of the great generation of players of that time: Stich, Agassi, Courier, Bruguera, Sampras, Ivanisevic, Krajicek, Chang, Rafter (all of them Slam-winners) and honorable mention to Todd Martin, Cedric Pioline and Wayne Ferreira, from the same group age.
The last great and competitive generation of tennis in the male´s ranks.
