Classic Rivalry: Gustavo Kuerten vs. Yevgeny Kafelnikov

Gustavo 'Guga' Kuerten

Yevgeny Kafelnikov

Head To Head: 7-5

On Clay: 4-1

On Hard: 3-4

In Finals: 0-0

Titles: 20-26

Turned Pro: 1995-1992



These two never contested a final but either of their brutal French Open tussles could have been a final.

Both times Guga was the victor, but Yevgeny squeaked Kuerten on the hard courts 4-3. Both men could not be more different either, which made for a compelling match up.
