He had to face seeded players in the first round of all three of his Grand Slam singles appearances. At the 1980 US Open he faced world number one Björn Borg, then played against 12th seed Brian Gottfried in the 1981 French Open, before coming up against 16th seed Mel Purcell in the 1982 French Open. He lost each of those matches.
He had more success as a doubles player. In 1981 he reached four doubles semi-finals, partnering Wolfgang Popp in Bournemouth, Alejandro Pierola in Bordeaux, Billy Martin in Madrid and Andreas Maurer in Quito. The following year, at Vina Del Mar, he finally made it to a Grand Prix final, but he and partner Ángel Giménez were defaulted.
