Muster underperformed terribly at RG (probably nerves, winning so many clay tournaments probably put him under huge pressure coming RG time), but he was a ****ing beast. In 1990 he was runner-up in Monte Carlo and he won Rome (or was the other way around? ), and lost in the SF of the French Open against Andres Gomez, nothing to be ashamed of (Gomez was a great clay court player). In 1991 he lost to Sampras in RG, a five setter, but should have won (even if he didn't like playing against that style of player). In 1992 he won Monte Carlo (IIRC) and in RG lost to Courier (Courier was a even bigger beast at that time, so not that surprising this loss). In 1993 he lost again to Courier in RG. Courier was GREAT at that stage of his career. His loss against Rafter in 1994 Roland Garros shocked me at the moment, but Rafter's game was JUST a nightmare for Muster (much like Edberg's game). 1995 was...well, you all know. He won everything on clay, and at last, he could win Roland Garros (one of the happiest days in my life). 1996 he was raping everybody on clay again, winning everything, but that shocking loss to Stich in R16 Roland Garros almost killed me that day. But well, Stich was one of the most talented players of the 90s and had a game that could bother Muster A LOT. 1997 lost to Kuerten in five sets. Another tough day for me at the time, but Kuerten was a great player as we all would see later on. 1998 lost to Mantilla in the QF. Muster was a bit too old and young Mantilla was very tough that year. Well, no more excuses. He should have won at least 2 French Opens (given how good he was, especially on clay), but it did not happen. It was another era, more unpredictable things happened often. I have no idea how Nadal would have done had he been born 15 years earlier. But Nadal is from another era, and in his era Nadal obviously has done things that Muster could not do in his own era.
