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

The players who lost to Federer at Wimbledon 2012 (in brackets the number of times they lost to an eventual slam winner):

Code:
 
F:    Andy Murray          (8)
SF:   Novak Djokovic       (10)
QF:   Mikhail Youzhny      (5)
R16:  Xavier Malisse       (3)
R32:  Julien Benneteau     (1)
R64:  Fabio Fognini        (1)
R128: Albert Ramos         (1)
-Andy Murray lost his fourth slam final, three of those against Federer. He's also lost 6 times to the eventual winner this decade (out of 11 slams!)
-Djokovic lost to the eventual winner for the second time in a row and for the fourth time in a semifinal.
-Two of Malisses losses to an eventual winner were in the fourth round, almost nine years apart!

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