Edberg’s most impressive clay court appearance, especially in retrospect with the knowledge Bruguera became a two-time French Open champion afterwards, and 19-year-old Corretja easily beaten by Edberg in the quarters, a two-time French Open runner-up. The Swede  saved a double break point at 3-all in the 1st set and a break point at 2:3 in the 2nd set – from that moment Bruguera  somehow lost his focus and 10 out of 12 games, having some problems in two games he won. Perhaps he paid the price for very intense April ’93 (it was his clay-court match no. 21 of the season). The final was played on May 2.
Edberg’s route to his 37th title (third & last on clay):
1 Jose A. Conde 6-0, 6-3
2 Jonas Svensson 6-4, 6-3
Q Alex Corretja 6-3, 6-2
S Emilio Sanchez 6-0, 7-5
W Sergi Bruguera 6-3, 6-3, 6-2
