Tennis-X Stat Freak: ATP Stuttgart, LA, Amersfoort

Posted on July 15, 2004

Brazil's Gustavo Kuerten is the only active player currently with a shot at becoming the first player in singles or as a doubles team to win three titles at the Stuttgart-outdoor. Former No. 1s Andre Agassi, Ivan Lendl, and Bjorn Borg are among the players that could only win once on the German red dirt:

2--Colin Dowdeswell/Frew McMillan, GBR/RSA (1980-79)
2--Gustavo Kuerten, BRA (2001,'98)
2--Martin Jaite, ARG (1989,'86)
2--Thomas Muster, AUT (1996-95)

Four American former No. 1 have won twice at LA, with Dutchman Richard Krajicek punching through as the only non-American multiple winner. Andre Agassi can separate himself from Jimmy Connors this year and become the all-time top winner at LA with four titles. No doubles team has ever won twice in LA:

3--Andre Agassi, USA (2002-01,'98)
3--Jimmy Connors, USA (1984,'82,'74)
2--Arthur Ashe, USA (1978,'75)
2--Michael Chang, USA (2000,'96)
2--Richard Krajicek, NED (1993-92)
2--John McEnroe, USA (1986,'81)
2--Pete Sampras, USA (1999,'91)

A lot of history for the ATP stop that dates to 1974, with Hungary's Balazs Taroczy setting a record that will likely never be touched. Taroczy also won multiple doubles titles with two different partners, as did Dutchman Paul Haarhuis:

6--Balazs Taroczy, HUN (1982-78,'76)
3--Karel Novacek, CZE (1994,'92,'89)
3--Tom Okker/Balazs Taroczy, NED/HUN (1980-78)
2--Sergio Casal/Emilio Sanchez, ESP (1990,'88)
2--Francisco Clavet, ESP (1996,'90)
2--Jacco Eltingh/Paul Haarhuis, NED (1998,'93)
2--Heinz Gunthardt/Balazs Taroczy, SUI/HUN (1983,'81)
2--Magnus Gustafsson, SWE (2000,'91)
2--Paul Haarhuis/Sjeng Schalken, NED (2001,'99)
2--Guillermo Vilas, ARG (1975-74)
