Re: Losing against the eventual slam winner- An Open Era overview

The players who lost to Rafael Nadal at US Open 2010 (in brackets the number of times they lost to an eventual slam winner):

Code:
 
F:    Novak Djokovic      (8)
SF:   Mikhail Youzhny     (4)
QF:   Fernando Verdasco   (3)
R16:  Feliciano Lopez     (3)
R32:  Gilles Simon        (2)
R64:  Dennis Istomin      (2)
R128: Teimuraz Gabashvili (2)
- Nadal has beaten Djokovic in four of his slam wins now.
- All of Lopez losses to an eventual slam winner were in the 4th round.
- All of Verdascos losses to an eventual champ were against Nadal.
- Gabashvili joins a very select club of players who lost to the eventual slam winner in the first ound twice.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....
