Playing at clay hasn’t been very easy for every player which highlights Sampras who failed at winning a single title in his glorious tennis career. The era of the ’90s couldn’t produce any kind of clay-like Bjorn Borg who bagged 6 French Open titles and held on to this record till Nadal took over the clay court and equaled 6 French Open Grand Slam records.

The tennis legend, Jim Courier won the French Open championship twice during this period.

American Andre Agassi somehow managed to make it to at least the runner-up. Hardcourt and grass court provide a reasonable pace and speed to the players however clay court slows down the pace which is why many hard courts and grass court champions were left clueless on the clay, leading to single or no French Open titles.
