Head Pro Tour 630 Thomas Muster. Peter´s Sport Shop. 373 gramm. Original racket which we received from Thomas after his 1995 French Open title. Looking back in history: On the night of 31 March 1989, Muster defeated Frenchman Yannick Noah in the semifinals of the Lipton International Players Championships in Key Biscayne, Florida, to set up a final against Lendl. However, in the early hours of 1 April 1989, just hours after his semifinal victory, he was struck by a drunk driver, severing ligaments in his left knee and forcing him to default the final. With the aid of a special chair designed to allow him to practice hitting balls while recovering from knee surgery, he returned to competitive tennis in September 1989. His exceptional fighting qualities brought him to the final of the French Open 6 years later, where he won the crown of Paris against Michael Chang. In February 1996, Muster attained the world no. 1 ranking for the first time. He has the highest winning percentage of single tournament finals of all players who reached a minimum of 25 finals. Of his 55 finals, he won 44 with only 11 defeats (80%). Due to his toughness to himself, Muster is still one of the greatest role models for young tennis players.
