Re: Grand Slam-finals Club [Open Era]

Roche, Kodes, Philippoussis and Murray made 2 slam finals and lost them both. Any other players with 2 or more GS finals and no GS titles? Of course Söderling may (or may not) be another one tomorrow.

Re: Grand Slam-finals Club [Open Era]

Making 2 GS finals is an achievement in itself.

thanks, how could I forget about Corretja

What players have lost their first 2 slam finals but eventually won a slam? Lendl of course is an extreme case, anyone else?

Agassi of course- lost 90 and 91 to Gomez and Courier in RG but picked up 1992 Wimbledon.
