Intresting are there more players for whom Slam/Masters was to be the last trophy or not? Pete and Marat are first whom I can recall. I don`t think there are many such players either.

Gasquet is next №1

to all who mentioned guys higher. I guess I was thinking about Slams in 1st turn, with Masters "field" is bigger for sure here.

P.S. How could I forgot about Ljubicic.
