Courier [1] defended his title ousting i.a. two future champions of the tournament (Muster, Agassi). He was a huge favorite in the final despite 1:1 in their H2H, but everything was quite open until 4th game of the 2nd set when Korda [8] leading 2:1, committed two straight double faults to lose 11 out of the last 12 games with another 4 double faults in the process. On the same court, four years earlier Wilander beat Leconte in the French Open final after the same scoreline.

Courier’s route to his 9th title (2nd French Open):
1 Nicklas Kroon 7-6(2), 6-4, 6-2
2 Thomas Muster 6-1, 6-4, 6-4
3 Alberto Mancini 6-4, 6-2, 6-0

Q Goran Ivanisevic 6-2, 6-1, 2-6, 7-5
S Andre Agassi 6-3, 6-2, 6-2
W Petr Korda 7-5, 6-2, 6-1
