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

The players who lost to Djokovic at US Open 2011 (in brackets the number of times they lost to an eventual slam winner):

Code:
 
F:    Rafael Nadal         (5)
SF:   Roger Federer        (12)
QF:   Janko Tipsarevic     (1)
R16:  Alexandr Dolgopov jr (1)
R32:  Nikolay Davydenko    (6)
R64:  Carlos Berlocq       (1)
R128: Connor Niland        (1)
-Nadal is finally making some of the top lists in this thread. He has lost 4 grand slam finals, two of those in the noughties (back to back to Djokovic, incidentally)
-Federer has now lost 12 times to the eventual winner. Three of those losses came against Djokovic in semifinals.
-Davydenko might be one of the best players to never reach a slam final, but he's not at Henmans level. Kolya lost to the eventual US Open winner for the third time.[/QUOTE]

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