Re: best qualifiers in a grand slam draw?

Wimbledon 2006, Irakli Labadze reached the fourth round. Wimbledon 2011 Lukasz Kubot did the same and Tomic reached the QF. And last year Brian Baker's 4R.

I am sure there are other examples.

Re: best qualifiers in a grand slam draw?

At the Wimbledon 2011 Tomic started with qualies and reached the quarterfinals

A bunch of guys reached the 4th round as qualifiers:
W 2012 Baker
RG 2012 Goffin (as LL)
W 2011 Kubot
RG 2011 Falla
AO 2011 Raonic
RG 2010 Gabashvili
...

Re: best qualifiers in a grand slam draw?

None are recent, but only four qualifiers have made a GS SF in the open era:
Filip Dewulf(RG 97), Bob Giltinan (AO 77 Dec), Vladimir Voltchkov(W 00), John McEnroe (W 77).

No qualifier has ever made a GS final in the open era(fyi, this is even on the womens side, where two qualifiers have reached the SF : Christine Dorey(AO 78) and Alexandra Stevenson(W 99))

Re: best qualifiers in a grand slam draw?

yeh there's loads of examples of 4R/QF runs if we open it up to the Open era of course, and several SFs.

a couple more:

Gilles Muller - USO QF in 2008.
Thierry Champion - W QF in 1990.

also, going further back, John Marks didn't 'qualify', but he made the 1978 AO final ranked World No. 177.

and Mark Edmondson won the 1976 AO ranked World No. 212...

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.
Haas / The Fog / Tsonga / Brown / Mahut / Baker / Alund / Fed / Khachanov / Pouille / Tursunov / Copil / Bolelli / Brands / Benneteau / Gojowczyk / Steps / PHM
Rafter / Edberg / Henman / Stich / Safin / Gambill / Grosjean / Malisse / Gonzo / Llodra / Santoro / Agassi / Schalken / Nováček / Rosewall / H-T Lee / Kuerten / Boetsch / Pavel / Sundström / Björkman / Scud / El Aynaoui / Arazi / Calleri / Sampras / Nalbandian / Mosquito / Srichaphan

Can this really be considered to be "in recent years"?

Had done it a long time ago.

Posted it in another thread a couple of months ago. It was just a matter of finding the thread.

John McEnroe is the only other male player to have achieved this(W 77)
In case you are interested, Christine Dorey(AO 78) and Alexandra Stevenson(W 99) are the only WTA players to do the same.

No qualifier(ATP or WTA) in the open era has ever reached a GS Final.

Re: best qualifiers in a grand slam draw?

Goffin's 4th round as LL was very impressive.. does he hold the record amongst lucky losers??

Re: best qualifiers in a grand slam draw?

Raonic, as a qualifier, made it to the fourth round of the AO in 2011 where he lost to Ferrer.

I don't know about grand slams, but LLs have won an ATP tournament several(~5) times.
