Ivan lost 11 GS finals
Doesn't change my argument though.
I like the idea of counting the number of times a player has lost to the eventual GS champion.
I've created a spreadsheet and started filling in all the players who lost to the eventual GS champ from 2006 until 2009.
Here are the first results.
I will continue to work on the spreadsheet and post the final results here and in the statistics forum.
