    Almost the entire 77-minute final must have been played in a drizzle. At 2-all in the 1st set the match was halted for an hour and officials decided to reduce it from ‘best of 5’ to ‘best of 3’ format. There was 3-all in 1st & 4-all in 2nd set… Bruguera [5] played his first tournament after a 4-week break following his sensational triumph in Paris. The Spaniard extended his winning streak to 15 – his best streak in career. Three days after the final vs Novacek [14], Bruguera was stunned by Alberto Berasategui in Stuttgart (6-4, 4-6, 1-6), not trying at all from 1:2 in the 3rd set – “I was really tired, simply tired and couldn’t play any better,” Bruguera said. Weird excuses given the fact he triumphed in Gstaad without any troubles.

    Bruguera’s route to the title:
    1 Bern Karbacher 6-4, 6-0
    2 Markus Zoecke 6-4, 7-6(3)
    Q Alex Corretja 6-1, 6-2
    S Mark-Kevin Goellner 6-3, 6-0
    W Karel Novacek 6-3, 6-4
