Berasategui advanced to the final not dropping a set, defeating a few major finalists! He was two points away from levelling at one set apiece. Trailing 5:6 he squandered a triple break point. Generally one of the least interesting French Open finals in years. Bruguera was simply more stable with his top-spins than the two year younger compatriot, and he used his serve more efficiently.

1 Martin Damm 6-1, 6-1, 7-6(3)

4 Patrick Rafter 6-4, 6-3, 6-1
Q Andrei Medvedev 6-3, 6-2, 7-5
S Jim Courier 6-3, 5-7, 6-3, 6-3
