Muster in 1995, won all the big clay-court titles except Hamburg (which he didn't play), and won 11 titles on the surface. In 1996, he won 7 titles on clay, which included a retaining of all his pre-French Open titles from 1995.
What is your point. Borg skipped the French which Vilas won, both Borg and Vilas were dominant on clay where they each played that year, but the two times they played Borg spanked Vilas like always, and Muster on clay in 95 and 96 was hands down the best clay courter in the World which Vilas never was. That was exactly what I already said. So your post is for what reason exactly?
Like I said you could give green clay to Vilas in 1977, but red clay there is no argument for Vilas being better than Borg except his French Open title with Borg not playing, but by that logic Barker and Ruzica were the best red clay players in the World in the years they won the French, not Chris Evert. Are you willing to make that claim as well, LOL!
