More finals, more semis, more quarters, and his only losses from 2005 onwards were Nadal, Djokovic, and 2 time finalist Soderling.
Vilas has 5 Masters 1000 equivalent clay titles. On top of the three you mentioned he won Washington DC in 1975 and 1977. It is also worth mentioning that he could have possibly won a 6th as he was playing the Monte Carlo final against Connors in 1981 but it was rained out in the first set.
