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

The players who lost to Djokovic at the Australian Open 2013 (in brackets the number of times they lost to an eventual slam winner):

F:    Andy Murray          (9)
SF:   David Ferrer         (5)
QF:   Thomas Berdych       (5)
R16:  Stanislas Wawrinka   (1)
R32:  Radek Stepanek       (2)
R64:  Ryan Harrison        (1)
R128: Paul-Henri Mathieu   (5)
-Murray has lost to the eentual Australian Open winner 4 times in a row.
-Murray has now lost to the eventual winner of a slam in this decade 7 times (in 13 slams). Is Lendls eighties record (17) in play?
-Ferrer, Berdych and Mathieu now all have lost to the eventual winner 5 times. All obviously while being slamless themselves.
-Stepaneks two losses both happened in the third round.
-Mathieu joins the select club of players who lost twice to the eventual winner in the first round. The first time? Wimbledon 2005, against Federer.

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