Thomas Muster leibniz

There is no better time to review a brilliant career than when it comes to an end. It es been a long time since Thomas muster hang the racket, first in 1999 and a second time in 2011, although this second stage better not remember. The Austrian touched the sky on the circuit, reaching No. 1 in the world, conquering Roland Garros and adding 44 ATP titles, some of the many achievements he has. In a report by ATP, the player himself highlights what were the turning points of a career that had everything. Quelle: Not surprisingly, Muster was twice named the Austrian Sportsman of the Year and also earned the ATP Comeback Player of the Year award in 1990. Off the court, his interests were many and varied. He had a licence to fly helicopters, was an excellent drummer, dabbled in art and photography and had business forays in wine and fashion. Memorable Moment After struggling with fatigue, dehydration and a lack of sugar in his blood in his 1995 Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters semi-final victory against Andrea Gaudenzi, the current ATP Chairman, returned to the court just 24 hours later to Boris face Becker in the final. Becker led by two sets and held two match points at 6/4 in a fourth-set tie-break. But with help from a double fault on the first opportunity, Muster won four straight points before cruising to a 4-6, 5-7, 6-1, 7-6(6), 6-0 victory after three hours and 16 minutes.

“I don`t know how I won the match” said Muster. “After what happened yesterday, I didn `t think I could be able to play today. I would like to thank the medical service that got me ready to play.” 1995: Höhepunkt seiner KarriereDie ersten großen Titel kommen anfang der 90er Jahre. 1992 gewann er in Monte Carlo seinen ersten Masters 1000. 1993 hebt er seine erste Trophäe zu Hause auf der Erde von Kitzbühel. Aber das Beste kommt noch. 1995 wird zweifellos sein Referenzjahr sein (84 Siege für 16 Niederlagen) mit nicht weniger als 9 Titeln, darunter Monte Carlo, Rom, aber vor allem der höchste Titel für diesen erfahrenen und Liebhaber der Erde: Roland Garros.Dennoch kommt er in Monte Carlo erschöpft aus seinem Halbfinale gegen Andrea Gaudenzi und muss in der Nacht in die Notaufnahme gebracht werden.
