Nope, Federer has 16 slam wins and 12 losses to the eventual winner. That's a total of 28, well short of Lendl who has 31 (8+23).
Nadal has 10 wins and 6 losses.

It's an interesting stat, I might add it in one of the first posts.

How did you come up with 32 for Federer and 19 for Rafa?

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